The Pistons will try finally take the lead in the series tonight at the Palace. Here are a few things of interest before tip.

Tip off is at 7:00 PM and will be Nationally broadcast on NBATV and locally 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.

We all know how important this game is and I have no doubts that Detroit is going to get things done tonight. I will be at the Palace tonight being as loud as humanly possible and if you are going to be there too, I expect the same.

I will leave you with a great comment from Team Need4Sheed member Amer-ican Prince from the comment section….
“Come on Pistons let’s be sailing on a Ship and not fishing on a boat”

    So who won the contest? ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Natalie Sitto

    As soon as they are informed I will let you know…waiting on the e-mail.

    Will announce another on Thursday!

  3. DetroitGirl4Ever

    I’m excited,lol. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. ric

    nat, no doubt about cwebb. but today, just like before game 4 started, we stand behind our team and unite as one. its time!!! its time to take detroit basketball to another level!!!

  5. Dominic

    Ok I have a theory. Bennie and Jeff have mentioned they were dissapointed by Tayshaun’s less than stellar play in the regular season. Mabe Tayshaun was just coasting during the season so that way when the Playoffs arrived everyone was ready for the 13 pt per game Tayshaun rather than the Tayshaun we are seeing now. I sincerely hope this is true because if Chauncey and Rip can turn on their games that’s a big three right there that’s better than Boston’s not to mention that Sheed guy.

    Feeling good about tonight. Hopefully we can all but put this thing away with a big win. Much rather finish this thing in 6 then have to stretch it out to 7 before running into a rested magic team. I pulling for a big night out of Chauncey. Go Stones.

    GO PISTONS!!!!

    Amer-ican Prince Im loving the quote!

    After reading this quote – “After all, it’s one thing to break a nose.

    It’s another to break a heart.” – in the McDyess article from freep.com, I got all kinds of teary-eyed!


  9. Vars4

    I’ll be there. I expect no sitting during the game.

  10. Danafesto

    I won’t be there but I’ll be watching every minute. And I’m glad those of you going will be LOUD, for the sake of everything. Because those Philly fans in game 4 pissed me off big time–they were definately a factor, I think. So give ’em hell, and let’s take the lead. God I love this team.

  11. Jess

    CB’s 24 seconds video was funny. They just aired it.

    Fav Cereal: Cinnamon Toast Crunch

    Fav Cartoon: Tom and Jerry “Cause they never spoke but always had you laughing” — I agree with that one!

    Fav Video Game: ?? Some old game “Yea, thats how long I havent played video games!”

  15. mhoopster3

    why have you lost respect for Webber??? He is right. and why would he lie? he was there last year, he knows how they are.. flip is garbage

  16. Dominic

    Anyone still want to denote Chauncey’s Big Shot nickname???

    Aaron Afflalo is locking Iggy down great job by the young gun

    41-29 to those w/o local programs

  17. Steve in OH

    Argh I hate Comcast and Time Warner… thanks to one of them my Slingbox is barely working yet again!

    But Go Pistons!!

  18. jessi

    this team that showd up toight look like the pistons we all know and love…

    Larry Brown is the new head coach of the bobcats

  19. Steve in OH

    Welcome back, Chauncey.

    Larry Brown, please stop fellating your ego and get the heck out of basketball already.

  20. jessi

    pistons win and in a nice way. Now lets get it done in philly.

  21. Jess


    Did you guys notice RIP walking to the locker room (after game ended) holding his left hip and kind of limping?

  22. Steve in OH

    Tay this series: 39-61 (64%)

    Past 3 games: 27-35 (77%)

  23. Amber

    Amazing game! It was so reassuring to see Chauncey make his first shot.

    Jess, no I did not see that, but I really hope he’s okay. Chauncey was rubbing his knee at one point in the game and I freaked out a bit because I know that it has been bothering him. Despite some of our players appearing hurt, it was a great game and they played incredily well over all.

    I’m sure you were glad to be there and that you had a great time, Natalie!

  24. Jess

    Yea I got a little worried about RIP when I seen that but than again I think he’s ok becuase he played through it like a breeze.

    Chauncey had that knee wrapped when he did his post game interview with Blaha and Kelser.

  25. xXxRiPHammyxXx

    Who would have thought after game 3 that we would be in better shape than Boston right now, possibly in the East.

    I just read the article about what Chris Webber had to say. No disrespect to CWebb, but nothing he says matters. He was never the explosive force for the Pistons when they needed someone to be explosive in the playoffs last year. CWebb is responsible for last year’s loss just as much as Flip and the other starters are.

    It has always been Sheed’s fire, Rip’s consistence, Tay’s selflessness, and Chauncey’s leadership that carry this team. CWebb, with his short stint with the Pistons simply did not leave enough of an imprint to criticize his former coach and teammates. This is not the first time CWebb has thrown his former teammates under the bus either. If I remember correctly, he also dissed his Kings teammates, saying how they were not competitive enough. I feel like he just points out the faults of his teammates without looking at himself first.

    I mean nothing that CWebb said in that article is positive about the Pistons. And these are the guys who were his teammates just a little less than a year ago. I feel like he just backstabbed the Pistons. If he really cares about his former teammates and wants to let them know that their ego’s getting too big, he should do so privately, with no cameras around. Not in the TNT studio.

    And in Flip’s defense, how many NBA coaching legends are out there these days? Popovich, Pat Riley, Phil Jackson, and Larry Brown, that’s it. 4 coaches, 30 teams. Flip has large shoes to fill and he has taken this team to the ECF finals 2 years out of his 3 years here. Much credit is given to the players, but I think Flip deserves some as well.

    Well, anyways, let’s wrap this series up in game 6, Pistons!

  27. The Fluidics

    I wouldn’t have thought they would be in better shape than Boston after game 3, but I’m not surprised at all that they would be up 3-2 after game 3. Never lost faith in the team that constantly amazes.

  28. pistons4life122

    Doees anyone know why every pistons jersey had a black stripe on the top left of their jersey? Did it have anything to do with the loss of Robinson?

  29. The Fluidics

    Yes, in honor of Coach Robinson. They said in the broadcast that they would wear the stripe for the remainder of the season.

  30. mannie32

    chauncey finally had a good game!
    and we win a solid, solid game… statement game… let’s eliminate these sixers in 6

  31. ric

    chauncey was great from the get-go….no surprise there, we got our classic chaucey billups….no need for mr big shot lets just have our old school billups from 03-04 nba championship!!! lets get this series done and put the dagger to the sixers in their own turf……pistons smells blood and they’re gonna for the kill!

  32. palaceprince

    great game for the Pistons. I glad we finally won two straight. Just hope the starters can come out in game 6 with a very agressive mind set so we can finally close out those pesky Sixers.
    Great game for Chauncey. I was reading something about how he hasn’t had a double digit assit game in the playoffs for a while. I wonder if Chauncey read that and came out and got 11 assits.

  33. Vars4

    Deeeetroit Basketball!!

  34. Steve

    great game very entertaining now embaress them on their home court put a bullet in em!!

  35. The Fluidics

    Both Dallas and Phoenix fall tonight. Man, the West has some good teams dropping, it’s an amazing playoff bracket.

    Godd win from the D tonight, showtime at the Afflalo was in full effect, and the guys played solid, Detroit basketball, “the right way”
