The Pistons are in Toronto tonight to take on the 23-42 Raptors. If Detroit pull out a win tonight it will be the first season sweep of Toronto in 11 years. The sweep aside a win could help the Detroit, who are current sixth in the Eastern Conference, but only a half game ahead of Philadelphia.
This is the surely a time when Detroit has to buckle down for a more desirable spot come April.
Rasheed is doubtful for tonight’s game and the Pistons will know more about the status of Allen Iverson in a week or so.
“I’m in no rush,” Wallace said a few minutes ago prior to Detroit’s morning shootaround. “I’m taking it day to day.” Via MLive
With the game Dyess played on Wednesday….he deserves more than this tribute mix, but that’s all I have for you right now.

Keep and eye and ear out for the abundance of Pistons fans in the crowd in Toronto. The comments are yours…
man thats a great piece on rasheed there really is a need for sheed on this team
Rip with 8(!) assists in the 1st quarter! WOW!
Curry is brain farting again. Why don’t we play Amir over Kwame?
If he thinks Amir is not ready then play him so he gets better… I just don’t see why we are playing Kwame over him when sheed is out against teams like raptors or knicks…
I agree gMac no offense Natalie but Kwame is lazy, or is at least playing like it. Come on man, make the most of your minutes, play some defense.
By the way are you guys watching Bosh, this is why I don’t want him here he is just skinny and not hard enough.
tayshaun’s like 3-9 it’s under 5 minutes in the 4th and now he decides he wants to pad his stats.
Dyess is playing great and good job distributing Rip
toronto tv people cant even spell the name of their all time assist leader. colderon? what?!?!
That last 3 is why Arron needs more playing time
RIP? RIP? Rip takes the last shot Curry? Really? he’s like 6-22 on the night, and you run an iso for Rip for the last shot?
Kill Curry. Period
Eli Zaret with the line of the night “You could call it the Passion of the Dyess”
What a game by Dyess and Maxiell saves the day!
I hope I can “find” the play of the game!
Mr. Davidson just past away
