Here’s to getting back to business.
Stuckey had a decent game but CB sucked ass.
the game is behind us now however I don’t think the pistons will forget it to soon, the only think that sucks big about it is that boston lost too, I don;t think there is too much to worry about I do see the pistons going down hill or joe rushing out to trade a starter, I think we have a good team who will be there this year during the playoffs.. here’s to a good game tonight.
PS what are your thoughts on the trafe the hawks just made? Do you think it will make things harder n the pistons if we play them in the 1st round? I mean teh hawks already make us work hard and now with mike on the team?
Don’t be crude dude!
its 8min before the half time…it seems like the pistons are playing where they left off last night. very tentative combined with the lack of energy.
The Pistons are looking like they did last night…and they isn’t a good thing at all.
no question about it blaine. u can see it. the pistons switch is officially now turned off. someone needs to turn that switch on.
It’s even more alarming right now. Do you really think they have that switch anymore. I haven’t seen it in quite some time.
I’m with you guys, this one is getting out of reach in a hurry. It’s the Bucks for goodness sake. Play some D and take better shots.
What is hell is going on with our boys? I’m sick and this game is making me feel even worse
No need to get worse…this one could make anyone sick.
well blaine hopefully there is that switch still. nat, anything from the inside that we don’t know that ur not telling us? c’mon nat share the scoop, whats going on? hehehe…by the way this is ric, as for richard.
Ric, trust me I share if there was even if Walter had ingrown toenail and I knew about it I would share. At this point I’m worried just hope Sheed’s Defense sparks this one.
i’m so sick i can barely write properly. i hope we can pull this out.
i know nat, we trust yah! just so crazy, i mean, THE BUCKS!!!? c’mon. it just doesn’t make any sense.
There lead keeps going back to 20. Its killin me!
I slept through most of the first half.. but it doesnt seem like I missed much.
jess u were lucky to miss it!!!! i bet theres a trade talk going on internally and its making our player not focus.
Jess you missed nothing trust us. Uyen, feel better.
Ric, I am not sure about a trade unless it’s Flip Murray or PB.
This one looks miserable.
Not liking it at all.
Richard I doubt there is a trade talk going on.. though I cant find one GOOD reason why they can be playing like this.
I appreciate CB’s hustle in that 3rd but Im hoping everyone else can get involved too cause one man cant compete with 8 guys against him (Im counting the refs too).
Well actually its 7 guys and a woman.
Rodney’s decisions are making me crazy right now.
its is just me our does anyone else hate how stuckey tries to be so fancy, almost like wade
I feel you Nat (about Stuckey), by the way when are you going out with me? I am waiting impatiently.
I dont think I have seem Sheed get any in since Ive been watching.. has he racked any??
guys im done with this one…another game to swallow….pretty hard coz its with the bucks, but at least they’ll play them again friday….suns and lakers game is pretty entertaining. nite guys! can’t wait til sunday..im watching our boys plays against naSHaq and phoenix.
He’s got 9 Jess.
Where are you taking me Blaine?
Ric, we still have to play the Bucks again Friday night.
I know this is just a game but ok if you have to lose a game one night by so may don;t got out the next game and do the same thing…
as for stuckey he makes me crasy everytime he has the ball, his first thought is drive to the basket not pass the ball to the open player… I think stuckey could be a good player but he needs to play detroit basketball, he could learn a lot for chauncey.. I watched an interview a while back on how he said he always try playing like wade and that was the player he wanted to he like in college, and that can work for you but not on the pistons…
I am at a loss. Stuckey is getting no calls when going to the hoop, CB is trying to get things going, Rip…why did you take that jumper when we were down 12? That was a five point swing…
I think I need to go re-organize my sock drawer. Blue socks on the left, black ones in the middle, all the rest on the right side? Thoughts?
I HOPE ITS NOT TOO LATE!!!
if we can hit a few big shotts we can win this game, we just can’t give easy shoots
Twaltch…if you did it already keep doing it, looks like the Pistons have some life.
Sheed is big right now.
IM SOO GLAD I NEVER GIVE UP ON THEM… AND FOR YOU WHO CHANGED THE CHANNEL MIGHT BE UPSET LATER… AND I THINK SHEED MIGHT OF GOT MY MESSAGE LOL
no matter the out come of this game, I think the pistons are back.. I knwo we can win this one, but I like how the pistons are back…
I want to grab sheed and hug him..
I chauncey should have went for the lay up there…
well at least it was a close loss, and we will take the next one adn if the pistons play like they have this quater the rest of the season things will be jsut fine.
we could still win this one,..
Everyone with me now…
This is killin me
I know we lost but honestly at least they put up a hell of a fight.
At least we know they turned that switch back on because it was off for a game and 3 quarters.
thank you sheed, for all you did to bring this game close…wow how great would that have been had sheed of gone in..
there is a Lunar Eclipse tonight, that could explain these werid games, no I am going to fare…
anyway I can be happy with this loss because as Natalie said they put up a hell of a fight…
OOH.. and I really do think SHEED got my message in the 4th quarter.. somebody must of called him or somethin 🙂
He couldnt just disappoint his #1.. or 2 fan (Nat might have that #1 spot by a hair) like that LOL
Thanks Natalie, now i can go to sleep and know they at least put up one hell of a fight.
ah…my shitty week just got even shittier…losing by 5 points after outscoring the Bucks 34-22 in the 4th quarter? Ah, just kill me now.
Shoot, bring on the Playoffs now, I can’t handle this whole 82-regular-season-games anymore! Why? Why? 5 freaking points? I’m having quite a nervous breakdown right now. Man, nothing is going right these past few days! That lunar eclipse better be gone soon!
Where is Rip and his hot shooting skills? Dear Rip, put on the flaming armsleeve and shoot the lights out of whoever we’re facing next, please! Man, I’m so out of touch these days, I don’t even know who we’re playing next. That almost never happens! AHHHH…
Claire I hope you get better… and we are playing the Bucks again. This time at the Palace.
the only upside to this is that as the pistons are lossing so is boston… this aways happens to the teams with the best records the guys who could be fighting for a playoff spots come out hard and upset the team taht should win… well I am not owrried it would have nice to win the last two it would have put us closer to boston but if teh 4th quater tells us anything it is that the pistons found there ways adn we will be seeing some good detroit basketball from here on out… I won’t say the might not have a few losses but I think our biys are back…
I agree with jessi,
These losses actually aren’t so bad because Boston is losing too haha. We’re not really losing any ground and I’m glad that we’re getting these pesky losses out of the way before we make another big win streak later on. I don’t mind being cold now as long as we’re HOT goin into the playoffs.
