The Pistons Hold Off The Celtics

The Pistons got a much needed win against the short handed Boston Celtics Saturday night. The 81-73 win ended a 2 game losing streak, in which the Pistons couldn’t take advantage a schedule that had them playing sub 500 teams, losing to the Bobcats and Hawks in the last two games.

Though the Celtics had to rely on their young players, because of injuries, they played well against the Pistons throughout. The game stayed close until the Pistons took the lead and put it away in the last five minutes of the ballgame.

Key Points:

  • Flip Murray was the Player Of The Game.
  • Rip and Flip each played 44 minutes.
  • The starting lineup included Dale Davis again in place of Mohammed.
  • Nazr played just 8 minutes in which he grabbed 4 rebounds and scored 2 points.
  • Jason Maxiell 13 minutes and 4 points.
  • The Pistons shot 34% from the floor and still won the game.
  • Delfino played 17 minutes and scored 4 points but still was hustled out there and played good D.
  • Flip Murray took 18 shots, one less than Rip.

  • Twitter

  • The Pistons only had 9 turnovers.
  • Tayshaun shot 6-for-16 for 16 points.
  • Just because Flip had a good game doesn’t mean I have to like him, but I appreciate it.
  • I guess we will know about Webber by Tuesday at the latest.
  • I made this shirt instead and it seems to have brought the team luck. You too can have one for just $12.99.
  • Rasheed was 3-for-13 with 11 rebounds and 2 blocked shots.
  • Dale Davis brings the D every time he’s out there.
  • Rip led the game with 22 points and 5 assists.
  • Why do other teams players always have some sort of career games against the Pistons?
  • The Pistons were 29-85 and the Celtics were 29-81.
  • When is Chauncey coming back again?
  • Rip has been playing a ton of minutes in Chauncey’s absence, I hope he doesn’t wear himself out.

  • Twitter
  • Flip Murray was on fire from downtown going 4-6.
  • Amir Johnson is doing good things in the D-League.
  • Dwyane Wade shot 23 free throws against the Jazz.
  • Maxiell had a dunk that I thought was going to bring the rim down.
  • The Pistons need to play better to beat the Big Ticket tomorrow.
  • Delfino at the point is working.
  • Rasheed was 2-5 from downtown.
  • I am going to ask Jeff of Celtics Blog.com to pick my lottery numbers for me.
  • 3:30 tipoff at the Palace Monday afternoon.
  • I am making everyone sick with my Pistons pen light.
  • This one is for Flip lovers. Wear it proudly!

    wow it’s quite apprent you guys will never like flip it’s cool but as natalie did be big when you comment…..And give flip his due..He’s will never be chauncy but would blalock got us the few wins that we did get? nope. so right now he’s our best option.

    The news on chauncy is he wantted to play the celtics game but wantted to give his calf another run around just to make sure but apprently the hotel staff forgot to give him his wake up call(right)so he didn’t wake up and wasn’t able to practice …..So he should be back soon…..I pray……webber? seems kind of doubtful to me

    Who knows, maybe things would be different if Flip wasn’t playing the point, but when Chauncey was healthy he still wasn’t really hitting his shots.

    I think Flip would fit better on a team that he could start on, maybe a team like the bobcats, where he could get pt to work on his game.

    We just can’t afford his mistakes, right now.

    With that said, he helped us a lot last night.

    January 13, Detroit Free Press:

    “I was feeling better, and then Thursday, I worked out on it really hard,” he said. “It started hurting me again.”

    Billups said a different part of his calf hurt at the end of the workout, and he took that as a good sign. He wanted to try working out on it again before Friday’s game and today’s game. But his hotel staff forgot to give him a wake-up call and he overslept, so he didn’t get a chance to test it at Friday’s shootaround.

    “It’s horrible,” Billups said about missing tonight’s game. “I hate it.” …

    The Pistons wisely continue to play it cautious with Billups, but it’s getting difficult watching this team struggle without their talented leader. Here’s hoping this is a small setback and we’ll be seeing Billups back on the court within a week.

    thats one thing I think we all forgot is no only sheed or tayshawn were in a slump….chauncy wasn’t doin that great either until he hurt his calf….But I hope when he gets back he can play with the determination and will to win and also list the pistons up cuz although we won the game…..Should it of really be a close one in boston? I don’t think so

    The Spot is one of 2 things, I have never had it confirmed though.

    It’s either a birthmark on his head that hair doesn’t grow out of.

    or

    The disease Alopecia.

    The one I made at home was just one of those iron on transfers. The T-Shirts from the Need4Sheed store are manufactured by a company for me. Mine was not nearly as good as the ones from the store.
