The Pistons vs. The Wizards

by | Dec 17, 2008 | 19 comments

Detroit hosts the (4-18) Washington Wizards at the Palace tonight. Detroit is on a hefty two game winning streak and would love to do their best not only to extend it, but to exact some revenge against the Wizards after their miserable showing in Washington.

Detroit needs to pounce on them when they are down, even though they didn’t a few nights ago.

“It is really frustrating,” Washington center Andray Blatche said. “I’ve been in this locker room for four years. In the four years, this is the worst it’s been for us. … Even though we started slow some of the seasons, we always managed to turn it around. The difference between that is we always had effort.” Via USA Today

Rip Hamilton sounds optimistic about Detroit’s new lineup that have won their last two games.

“It’s a learning adjustment for us, too,” Hamilton said. “We’re playing a lot more guys, and we’re putting guys in different situations that they ain’t used to. So, yeah, you might have slippage, especially early. It’s nothing we’re concerned about.” Via The Detroit Free Press

Glad Rip isn’t concerned like the rest of us.

Tip off is at 7:30 P.M. on FSN. If you can’t watch the FSN broadcast, tune into 1130 AM The Fan where you can catch our friend Matt Dery with the Pre-Game starting at 6:30 (my pre-game ritual on the way to the Palace). Can’t do either, follow the game on NBA.com.

    just fyi, NBA TV is airing a segment tonight at 7 pm called “Real NBA – Under the Radar.” Stuckey is going to be featured as one of the players “putting up big numbers and impressive performances without drawing much attention for their feats.” hope you’re able to watch it!

    It’s pretty easy to look good against the wizards. At least for most teams. Didn’t Detroit lose to the wiz 2 weeks ago? Yeah.

    Gotta give the team props, they put the Wizarsd down when they needed to. Looks like the Pistons still have that switch, because they flipped it in teh 4th tonight.
    You know who didn’t look good? The guy in front of me who went out and got a custom made Michael Curry jersey. Somebody get that man a teal Mateen Cleaves jersey, stat.

    Iverson did finally have the kind of game we were hoping to see out of him. Stuckey had an excellent game too. I loved Rip’s defense. I’m not sold that this kind of play will happen every game, since it was the Agent Zero-free Wizards, but I am optomistic that we’re moving forward.

    No Amir or Hermann 🙁

    Richie, only 8 players got on the floor for Detroit tonight. I won’t complain much since they won, but no Amir, no Kwame, no Walter, no Will.

    BTW, Sheed was rocking the NC blue Nikes in the shoot around, since it was mentioned the other day.

    Its times like these that it just feels good to have been on the Iverson bandwagon from the start…

    DID YOU SEE THAT PASS

    Iverson was trying to be a good team mate. But I rather seem him like this be aggressive, shoot first!
    Anybody watch part of the Hawks ,Celtics game? We can play this small ball all we want, but hawks was getting all those rebounds and second chances points because they got some big young guys that can jump. How are we supposed to beat any team in the playoff not playing some of the big men much minutes at all?
    If sheed is going to be playing just Defense, I rather see use sit him and play Amir or Dyess to start.
    We should seriously play AI or Rip off the bench.
