The Detroit Pistons vs. The Timberwolves

  • Twitter

Detroit is in Minnesota tonight to take on the 19-53 Timberwolves. This is likely to be a game that we see tons of minutes from all the players you have been itching to see all year long. You won’t see Walter Herrmann in the starting lineup, but you can expect to see plenty of Maxiell, Stuckey, Afflalo and Amir Johnson.

Detroit will try to take this game to avoid losing four straight road games for the first time since March 2005.

Since it looks like it’s going to be a night for them to shine, make sure you support The Crew. The ZOO CREW is in desperate need of your VOTES!

Tip off is at 8:00 PM and will be locally broadcast on myTV20 Detroit. 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.

Leave ’em in the comments, hopefully this one will be fun.

    We need to start a “Play Cheikh Samb” bandwagon right now!!!

  3. mannie32

    i think waltar hermann and samb are treating this game like a big time audition haha… cant believe a greatly undermanned piston squad is only down 4 at the half

  4. Nat_Turner_Wit_Tha_Burner

    the zoo crew is looking pretty good

  5. Dominic

    yea its good to know the bench can come back from over 20 pts even against Minnesota

  6. mannie32


    big big game… he’s shown us a lot here tonight thus far… this should do wonders for his confidence… im so so happy flip decided to rest our all-star backcourt (and sheed) today

    wow I hope this is a good sign for what is to come, being down by 21 and coming back to win the game that is just great basketball. My hat goes off to the zoo crew, they didn’t give up when they so easily could could have instead they played D and made their shots. I am all game to see more games like this and rest for the starters… I think Tay should still start only because of his games played and he has a change to beat bowens 500 and I would love to see that however I was hoping for him to get so rest and see his minutes go down but either way he has not been playing as many as last yr and I think he will be there this yr in the playoffs…

    anyway great game by the zoo crew..

    So fun to watch Tay out there coaching the youngins… nice win Zoo Crew.

  9. claire

    wow, we were down by 21 at one points? I’m very proud of our Zoo Crew.

  10. The Fluidics

    well that game was a ton of fun. Great work guys.

  11. Retrokidz201

    who the hellll can stop the Zoo Crew nd cnt 4get about RODNEY THE STUCKMAN

  12. mannie32

    honestly… just imagibne how good stuckey could be right now if a) he didnt miss half the season, and b) if he didnt play behind two all-stars in the backcourt (i.e. he would have had a lot more playing time, and learn from experience)

    despite playing half the season with bench minutes, he’s come a long way

  13. mike

    comon guys vote for the zoo crew they need your help

  14. The Fluidics

    Yeah, vote for the crew, the other guys blog crashed my browser. He sucks.
    I’m jealous of his ambitions though.

  15. Tom G. Shea

    i would love to see Walter Hermann shoot every shot fading away/behind the backboard with one hand.

    that man has hands as big as king kong. its like he’s holding a tennis ball.

    but seriously, he shoots everything with one hand. wtf

  16. Steve

    Good game from what ive seen while i was at the gym.. Stuckey is the man, Afflalo ehh is a good D leaguer, Dixon is the truth off the bench, amir “god forbid i bash our best player in all pistons history”, and im glad to see flip resting the guys that matter..hence leaving gayshaun out there where he belongs..with the bench and he still couldnt do much i think it time to say bye bye to tay tay..but playoffs will tell regualar season sucks.. OnE

    Highlights of the game. Sorry this one’s quality is not so good. And I was so into the first 5 miinutes of the 4th Qrt, I forgot to record.


  18. Eric

    Steve, your mood swings with the box score of each game.

    You also need to stop deriding our players, especially a hard worker like Afflalo, and a player who’s done the job night in and night out for the past 5 years in Tayshaun.
