Can The Pistons Actually Take A Game From The Bulls?

The Detroit Pistons vs. The Bulls

  • Twitter

The Pistons will try NOT to get swept by The 25-37 Chicago Bulls tonight at The Palace. The Bulls, who were pre-season darlings, haven’t lived up to any of the expectations that many had placed on them prior to the seasons start. One thing is for sure though, they know how to beat The Pistons. If Chicago pulls off the sweep of the regular season tonight, it will be the first time they accomplished the feat in 12 years.

It looks like the decision to play Sheed won’t happen until tip off, but A Sherrod Blakely thinks he won’t.
“With no games on Monday and Tuesday, I suspect Detroit will try to use as much time as possible in an effort to ensure his sprained left ankle has had enough healing time. I suspect he’ll be back for Wednesday’s game against Philadelphia or Friday’s against San Antonio.”
Sounds like a good idea if you ask me.

Tip off is at 8:00 and will be locally broadcast on FSN Detroit and nationally on ESPN. If you can’t catch it on TV you can always tune in to 1130 AM WDFN The Fan or stream it live through your computer at NBA.com.

Oh…and as for this nonsense about Marbury coming here……I take it as just that, nonsense. For goodness sake it came from the NY Post.

Since Mr. Davidson is on the ticket today, let’s hope Mr. D inspires an impressive win.
Leave ’em in the comments.

    Oh God, please no.
    Marbury is poison. Hey Zeke, stop having your cronies put out fake bullshit. Only place Marbury may go to is back to Brooklyn playgrounds.

    McDyess is really pissing me off.

    He’s at the point where he is doing NOTHING right. As opposed to Ratliff who looks like a God and actually plays in the post.

    what a luxury it is to have ratliff wow… as i said before, hugely impressed

    as for dyess, he’s in a slump… he’ll come out of it… we prolly just need to rest him a lot more for the rest of the season, so he’ll be well rested and back in form by the playoffs

    Flip Saunders cluelessly watches GB abuse this team and surprisingly makes no adjustments.

    I hate Flip. Grow a pair and take control of your team.

    Anonymous @ 9:47, speak for yourself. Tay may baffel you but not all of “us.”

    Why are the refs trying their damn hardest to keep these pesky ass bulls in the game? Its been a foul call on almost every possesion.

    exactly.
    thats why Boston wanted Doc fired last year. and now all of sudden hes the best coach ever. Obviously the coaching skills is going to make or break a team, but the coach is the easiest person to blame things on when shit gets tough. Get over it. flips not helping Gordon hit shots. And for all we know he is making plays to stop him. Its not Flip who gets the final say as to what play is going to be made.

    Overall i think this was a nice win, we are really trying to figure out rotations right now and wher eour new players fit in best, flip kept stuckey in there long tongiht and i think thats good in a game like this, let him get a feet for these moments, ratliff looked good, so what if he gets dunked on, its good to see some people going for it, 3 blocks ill take it, even beter when rasheeds around, i cant wait to see them play together, amirs dunk was amazing

    seeing how superstitious dyess is, dont you think we could put sheed back at pf and leave in ratliff at c, then get dyess his 15 and 10 off the bench again where he’s comfortable?

    Mike,
    I was NOT one of those girls screaming when Tay took his jersey off. I love the Pistons but I don’t “love” them like that. Honestly, I could have cared less.

    Good win but was it just me or did the fourth quarter foul calls seem ridiculous?

    I agree with natalie. I won’t love them screaming when Tay took his jersey off. I sonud like childish to me although Tay is my favorite player.

    All right everybody. I just read this quote by the NBA’s resident CLOWN, Joakim “Rich Man’s Vareijao” Noah… oh my God, this guy needs to get off that peyote he’s been smoking REAL FAST… listen:

    “I think Detroit’s a great team, but I still think we are better than them, really. I feel like we’re a better team.”

    Seriously, Joakim… this made me laugh, I almost fell off my bed!!! This guy is HILARIOUS! And I don’t mean Dane Cook funny… I’m talking about Chris Rock/Bernie Mac/Cedric The Entertainer/Richard Pryor HILARIOUS!!!!!

    What were you thinking Noah baby? True, you won the regular season series, but you guys now got NOTHING… Seriously, are you gonna tell me that your best offensive weapon is Gooden, who was just two days away from having LeBron open a can of whoopass on his bald head? Or maybe is it Larry Who-gues? And please, don’t even talk about Mr. Overrated himself, Luol Deng!!!! Chicago is where it’s supposed to be… for drafting clowns like you Joakim! Cuz don’t tell me that if Paxson could do it all over again, he wouldn’t take Stuckey over your sorry ass????

    Oh, and 21 games behind is nothing? Damn, Joakim… did they teach you ANYTHING at Florida? Guess you can’t count, eh? Joakim, is that French for Loser?

    Just glad to see the D to the P win another one… Sheed, get better from that ankle… we need you back and kickin’. Prince, you’re the EMPEROR of the Palace, baby, bar none!!!!! You Da Man!!!!!!

    quote of the night (and no doesn’t go to noah):

    RATLIFF: “It’s going to be real scary once I get my full health and get my legs up under me. I think it’s going to be a surprise to a lot of people in the league.”

    yezzzzirrrrr, he has quickly made me a huge fan

    i have to say though… i really do like some of the bulls players, suprised they’ve had such a bad season, they’re BIGGEST mistake was letting go of tyson chandler, he’s a beast!!!
    but deng is not overrated at all, he’s a great player, just had a bad year… and i like noah, i think over time he’ll be a very soid player, not an all-star, but the type of guy many coaches would want on their team… they just need a leader, and bad… too young of a team with a lot of immaturity

    The Bulls played an impressive game. They are a very aggressive team and we always have trouble. It’s fine though, we won’t have to see them so whatever. Good to see Theo come in and play some good minutes!
