The Pistons looked like they started their All Star break early last night at the Palace. The Spurs controlled the tempo of the game and the Pistons poor shooting in the first half dug a hole that they couldn’t get out of. Had it not been for some clutch baskets by Richard Hamilton and Lindsey Hunter this could have been ugly(well, uglier that it actually was).
As for my usual Key Points I am going to forgo them for th simple fact that I didn’t watch the game last night. I finished watching it this morning and knowing the outcome and what happened I didn’t pay much attention, especially since I looked at the Box Score. Lets put it this way, Chauncey and Tayshaun went for a combined 0-for-9 in the first half and the Pistons had just 34 points going into halftime. Enough said.
To bad Richard Hamilton had to lose one on his Birthday, at least he’s off to the All Start game and can forget about this one. The best thing that came out of this one was a Valentines wish from Sheed.
i guess i will be the first to write on this one lol. yeah they did celebrate a little too early, and this could have been a nice birthday present for rip but, it is okay. for them to be playing as good as they are right now is enough for me. the simple fact that they aren’t playing to be #1, like they did last year, says something. personally the spurs are still a pretty good team and they had a pretty rotation going on, but the refs did call Some shady fouls on our fellows. if it weren’t for the bad shooting percentage, and those bad calls, where we could have got in some extra points, we could have had a clencher during the end of the game.
the second half of the season is the one that matters most, and they are going to need to show more aggression, like they have been lately. so, we can lose a couple of games, we don’t have to be on top, even though it looks so pretty,but the thing that matters the most is that we get to the playoffs whether we are the 1st seed or 7th, we play 7 straight games or win 4 in a row. the main point is as we learned last year, you can be flashy all you want in the regular season, and win 64 games or whatnot, but if you don’t make it to the finals, all that stuff is null in void, it doesn’t matter and it was a wasted effort (well it would seem that way).
so pistons go out and enjoy yourselfs and have a good time at the allstars, and when you get back “it’s time to go to work” lol
and show them why yall are the notorious Detroit Bad Boys!!
repping my home detroit fo live !!!
it seems to me that Flip isn’t doing his job so well. i agree that he gives his players more freedom, hence the fast jump start at the beginning of the 05-06 season.
but take last nights game. flip takes people out when theyre hot (hunter and sheed) , and keeps people in when theyre cold (prince). what about the huge run the spurs had, coming in from half time. where was the timeout?
there are probably a lot of things that i dont understand. i am not saying i would make a better coach. that is just my point of view…
i sort of wish larry brown would bring his coaching back to town
It was just one of those nights for the guys. So many shots were halfway down that came back out. Between that and our D really not being able to put a halt to Tony Parker, I think they couldn’t get any motivation to spark a comeback. Hopefully the outcome is different in SA next month.
i would of been mad but chauncey and rip said hi to me
