The Pistons will be going for their 7th consecutive win tonight at home against the surprisingly good Portland Trail Blazers(28-20). The Pistons need a win to avoid being swept by the Blazers for the first time since the 2002-2003 season. If you ask Rasheed about his former team, he’s not that impressed.
“They haven’t done anything. They went on a little win streak, but when they have a better record than when I was there, that’s when they’ll have done something.” Via The Detroit Free Press
He also isn’t putting his money on Rip Hamilton’s chances of walking away with the All Star Three Point Challenge trophy. “He don’t have rapid fire in his magazine,” Via M Live
Reining rookie of the year Brandon Roy, is not only leading his Blazers this season averaging 19.7 ppg, but he’s also representing the team in this years All Star game. Unfortunately Brandon won’t be playing tonight, he’s back in his hometown of Seattle to deal with a death in the family. Best wishes go out to Roy and his family.
