Double Doubles Get Sixers In Trouble

The Pistons took advantage of a Sixers team that was without Allen Iverson and Chris Webber. Tayshaun led team with a 25 points, four rebounds and six assists in the 97-87 win. Rasheed Wallace and Chauncey Billups each recorded a double double, while Richard Hamilton added 16. It was a balanced attack again led by a strong showing from Rasheed.

I am pleasantly surprised by the way that Rasheed has stepped up in the last few games. It’s not like we don’t know that Sheed can lead the team, but he is such a team player that he’s reluctant to take control of games himself unless he knows that the team needs him. Right now he’s the reason why the defense is holding it together. You can’t ask much more of someone who can put up a double double each game. I just wish he could get some help on the boards.

Rip and Rasheed, hometown boys in Philly had to dole out the tickets for the game. Check out what Rip and a barley conscience Sheed had to say in this Pre-Game Interview.

We keep laying praise on how good Rasheed has been playing but Tayshaun Prince is quietly racking up the points and minutes for that matter. Here is the Post-Game Interview with Tayshaun and Sheed. Pay special attention to Sheed when watching. What does he have tucked in his hat? Is it a sharpie? And he sure doesn’t like to be told that the Pistons are searching for their identity. He make sure he sets the reporter straight who asked the question.

    I agree. Sheed has really stepped up his game. It just goes to show what type of player and teammate he really is. His leadership is showing with his play, and thats how the great ones always have done it. We need him more than ever now and so far he has answered the challenge. Captain or not, hes a leader on this team.

    I think sheed has realized that they are not getting what they wanted out of the centers on the borads so he has stepped into the rolls to try and get the rebounds, its great to see. I hope with 3 wins in a roll it means the pistons are getting back to there old ways.

    I am happy to see Tayshaun stepping up as well he has played very well this season its like hes playing in his playoff mode. I like it.

    About sheeds hat I think it is a pen or something. I lije it though.

    He put that reportor in her place. I think everyone needs to get off the case of the pistons have lost there identity tehy will see in time that they are the same old pistons and just needed a little playing time at the start to work out the cracks. In the pre game interview sheed looks like he just woke up.

    Are Tayshaun and Sheed wearing the same shirts?

    It does look like Sheed and Tay are wearing the same shirt. If we wanted to be picky we could say the lines on Tay’s are thinner but other than that they are identical.

    Was it a good game??? I missed it!! 🙁

    I have noticed that Sheed is steppin up very pleasantly tho not that he usually doesnt..

    I also noticed he’s more calm now when they call a foul on him and thats good to see.. for now, or until something is done about the stupid “ZERO TOLERANCE” bullshit.
