It’s still not official whether Chauncey Billups has returned to the team after leaving them to attend to a family matter back in Detroit, but it seems unlikely at this point. What does that mean? This one could get Stuckey. Rodney Stuckey could get his first NBA start tonight against the 19-37 Clippers. We may even get some time from Lindsey Hunter and Juan Dixon.
The last place Clippers are looking to avoid a fifth consecutive loss and the Pistons are looking to get back to their winning ways after the tough loss in Utah. Expect to hear plenty of Pistons fans at the Staples center tonight. Not only do we have tons of Pistons fan is LA, Prince, Afflalo and Amir Johnson all hail from the area so, you can bet they will have their own special fans in the building.
Will Amir get some court time tonight? I think there is a good chance his “head cold” is fine. It also doesn’t hurt Amir’s chances now that Flip realized he could have been some help in Utah.
“We got to a point where Maxey was playing really well, and we were trying to match things,” Saunders said. “But we made a mistake — we should have played him. We got in a situation where they were making such a run, and we thought at that point it was too late.First thing I said afterwards was, ‘We should have played Amir, and we didn’t.” Via The Detroit Free Press
There you have it.
I’m watching this one after the fact (Chris Rock is in town), so I’m leaving it to you in the comments. Oh and don’t forget about the March Schedule Wallpaper.
