Well seeing as the Pistons haven’t played in four days you could say that I am pretty excited to see them take on the Heat tonight. Yes I am excited about the game but it’s not quite the battle I thought it would be considering we lost to the Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals last season. A Shaqless aching Heat does not spell thriller to me at the moment. I still wholeheartedly believe that the Heat didn’t end the Pistons season last year, at that point Larry Brown’s Knicks could have taken them down.
Well that’s all history, the Pistons are on a six game winning streak and they are standing at the top of the Central division a half of a game ahead of the Cavs. So the Pistons could use a win, not because they are playing the current NBA Champions, but because they are playing well right now and they would love to keep rolling. It’s early, but the Pistons are in first place and I am sure they want to stay there. Here are the Matchups for the game by Dominique Wilford.
Some of you might not know this, but our resident do it all small forward Tayshaun Prince has been having a career season thus far. He’s silently gunning his way to a spot on the All Star team. Chauncey has even dubbed him “The Silent Assassin.” So if you haven’t started voting for Tay and the rest of the crew remember to do it every day. I am sure Mr. Prince would appreciate it.
While we are on the subject I found a nice Tayshaun Prince YouTube mix for all to enjoy. My favorite highlight of the mix has got to be the fake and spin move against LeBron.
I wonder if Tayshaun likes to go into the crowd becuase he sure does it a lot. He really puts his whole 215 lbs into every block. He always seems to end up on the floor when he blocks a shot. I am really happy to see him doing well he is my fav. pistons and like when he scores more than 15 points a game. I hope he makes it to the all star this year I vote everyday. The pistons usually win when Tayshuan has come out and gave 15 plus points in a game.
Thought the video portion of the mix was terrific of Prince–didn’t care much for the abundant use of profanity in the audio portion. My 9 and 11 year old sons are also big Pistons fans and consequently I will have to show them this video without sound.
The game writeup was a very nice addition and I enjoyed reading the addition from Dominique. Always impressed here…
I am just a little pumped, I sure would like to pull out the win here.
Tay is awesome, but wasn’t Pippen already dubbed “the silent assasin”, perhaps it’s fitting since there hasn’t been anyone who could fill the stat sheet as quietly as Tay, since Pippen was in his prime.
Thanks Taylor for your comment.
Let’s hope the Pistons get it done in MIA tonight.
That dribble move behind the back on iverson was hard as hell.
Did everyone hear about what Sheed was up to in practice today? Chris McCosky in his detnews blog talks about Sheed giving his “D-Wade impression”. He kept falling down and getting up limping. It sounds absolutely hilarious. Watch Sheed closely tonight!
Hahaha…would love to see Sheed do that impression during the game. D-Wade loves to do the injured “but i can still play coach” move all the time.
I guess being dubbed “the silent assasin” is ok since pippen him self said prince is the player of today that reminds him of himself.
Nice… I put the post up. wouldnt that be great if Sheed actually did it?
I LOVE TAYSHAUN!
And that fag Wade couldn’t hold us off tonight, even though it was a close game!!!
STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON! Tayshaun is the best!
