We know now that Rip will not be playing (due to a family emergency) tonight with A.A. taking his place in the starting lineup. I don’t think we need to worry about Rip, a person in the know says he’s missing tonights game due to the birth of his child. A Sherrod agrees.
For those of you wondering why Afflalo is getting the starting spot tonight against the Heat, maybe it’s because The Pistons would rather have him out there with the starters help rather than be the leader on the floor when the 2nd team is in. Either way, our boys need Flip Murray and A.A. to shine tonight.
As for the game, I’m going to leave you with a Sheed quote regarding tonights matchup and the fact that the Pistons have a S%^$ load of road games to start of their 50th season.“It’s always more fun to go in someone else’s house and kick their (butt), then beating them here at home,” Wallace said. “I’ve always been like that, and the majority of the players on this team are like that. We’d rather go into someone else’s house and get that ‘W.’ “
It’s on Pistons fans, we are back in business. As always, leave ’em in the comments.
