The Pistons whipped the Wizards 104-85 in their LAST game of the preseaon. The bad news is that The Pistons lost Rodney Stuckey with a broken hand.
- Rodney Stuckey’s injury, that as key as it gets. Let me say that I was shocked when I found out it was broken. From my point of view at that game I didn’t think it was a big deal. When Blaha announced it in the post game notes I got sick.
- Amir Johnson made his debut of the preseason after sitting out with an ankle injury. He looked good in his 15 minutes. He went 3-for-3 with 7 points and 2 rebounds.
- Nazr Mohammed also played for the first time since his preseason injury. In his 11 minutes he had 4 rebounds a blocked shot a steal and 4 points.
- I am jumping on the Flip Murray bandwagon right now. He’s going to play the bulk of the minutes now that Stuckey is out.
- Sheed was HOT last night,7-for-12 shooting 3-for-5 from downtown for 17 points and 7 rebounds in just 20 minutes. Do I even have to say it? SHEEDTastic
- I really like Cheikh Samb, he should be solid after a season in the D League. Maybe we should have him get in touch with Jared to see what he used to do Pre-Subway days.
- Rip Hamilton says he will be ready come Nov 1.
- Super Dupe and Sammy Mejia are still fighting it out for the last roster spot.
- Maxiell ripped down 10 boards in his 16 minutes. What’s a person got to do to get a Maxiell Jersey?
- GM’s think The Pistons are the team to beat, well almost.
- Sheed the Runner-up for Defensive player of the Year? I’ll take it. Maxi also named as a player to watch. Sports Illustrated knows what they are talking about.
- I know it’s early, but I would like to see McDyess get hot.
- Jarvis Hayes sent a message to his former team last night with his 21 points in 23 minutes. I am sure he’s smiling today, sorry Wizards Fans. This guy is going to shine in Detroit, just like all the rest of the former Wizards/Bullets that have put on a Pistons uni.
- I will try keep you as up to date as I can on Stuckey’s condition but it’s going to be a while until we get to see him again.
- Anyone else going to the Pistons Crew Party tonight? It should be fun.
