Tonight Detroit is takes on the 6-and-14 Grizzlies, who are currently on a four game losing streak. Look for the Pistons run up the numbers, for the simple fact that Memphis boasts the second worst defense in the league. Pistons fans get a chance to see old friend Darko Milicic, who is finally a starter, and is averaging 7 points, 6 rebounds and 2 blocked shots per game.
For a detailed game preview Memphis style, head on over to 3 Shades of Blue (who were nice enough to ask me my thoughts on tonight’s game). You have to check out their extensive match ups, however I must disagree that Mike Miller has an edge over Tayshaun and Pau has the advantage over Sheed. That’s realistic isn’t it? If you look at their lineup the Pistons hold the edge at every position. Sure our starters don’t average big numbers, the reason……they don’t have to.
Maxiell may get the start tonight, A Sherrod says Rasheed wasn’t at the shoot around this morning because he was feeling ill. Saunders said if he does play it, he will likely come off the bench.
Tip off is at 8:00 PM and is being broadcast locally on FSN Detroit. Remember you can head over to The Need4Sheed.com Forum and go into the chat room to discuss the game live with other Pistons fans.
I’m leaving it to you, here’s to the red, white and blue.
