Detroit is going for their sixth straight win tonight at The Palace against the 9-37 Miami Heat. The Heat are trying to finalize a trade that will send Shaquille O’Neal to The Suns for Shawn Marion and point guard Marcus Banks. Which means your probably not going to see the big fella sitting on the sidelines for this one, since many sources are reporting that he’s in Phoenix undergoing a physical to push the deal through.
This is the second meeting between the teams this season, the first going to The Pistons in the season opener. The Pistons have won two in a row and five of the last six contests in the series. Miami has dropped three straight and eight of its last nine trips to the Motor City.
On a side note, Richard Hamilton got his wish to be in the All Start Three Point Shootout. I would really have been upset if he didn’t make it considering the Cavs Daniel Gibson was selected.
Tip off is at 7:30 PM and is being televised broadcast locally on myTV20 Detroit. If you can’t catch it on TV you can always tune in to 1130 AM WDFN The Ticket or stream it live through your computer from their website.
I am heading out early to The Palace to meet with the Winners of The Ultimate Pistons Fan Contest, for our special behind the scenes tour and to enjoy watch The Pistons put their own brand of heat on Miami. So as always, I’m leaving it up to you in the comments or live in the Need4Sheed.com Forum Chat Room.
Thanks again to The Pistons Organization for the making today a special day for some very thankful Pistons fans.
