The Pistons lose another courtesy of The Bobcats

by | Dec 22, 2009 | 12 comments

This may have been the most discouraging loss in quite some time for the Pistons. It wasn’t because they lost the game at the buzzer, it wasn’t a  great outing gone bad, it was simply just a hard game to watch from a tired, beat up, rundown, undermanned Pistons squad. Don’t get me wrong, the Bobcats had a lot to do with the 76-88 loss, but the Pistons couldn’t get anything going their way.

I’ll let George and Greg tell the tale:

Side note: Gerald Wallace was a killer, love his game, but we really don’t need to see his mouth piece the whole game. It’s for the inside of your mouth Gerald…ok?

I’ll leave it at that, because the now five game losing streak is weighing on the team and their fans. We will get a chance to get things going again when the Pistons face the Raptors tomorrow night at the Palace.  Hey, we may even get one of the injured back tomorrow if Santa is nice to us.  If anything, it will be nice to see Amir back at the Palace, even though he’s not in red, white and blue.

    I agree, really hard to watch and respect Gerald when he’s chewing on his mouthpiece all game. lol. With all of the opps to get back in the game that went wrong, we could have won this one by 6 or 8 points. The team doesn’t look interested in even playing. Has anyone else noticed Austin seems to get razzed by the refs a lot lately? Either way, Pistons look tired. BG looked agitated by all the questions of when everybody is going to be back…can’t blame him.

    It is what it is.
    Maybe we’ll have some push down the road once everyone is healthy. U dont need a good record, just as long as you can keep putting up W’s towards the end of the season and in the Playoffs. ( That’s if we even make it)
    Who really knows. From the looks of it, its going to be
    Hebo aka (Mr. DODOman) and The Stealing Fench fry little boybaby in the Ship anyway, hell the Refs let you know that every time they throw money on the Court for both of Davids cash golden cafs!

    I understand that Austin Daye is a rookie and he has to learn how to be successfull in the NBA but everytime he touches the ball I cringe. Is it just me or does it seem like 3 out of every 4 times he touches the ball he turns it over.

    trade tayand stuckey get a point gaurd. a real one.a guard will control tempo.a scorer will hurt you and your team, I love the pistons but lets face it thet hasnt been a dominant scorer who refuses to loose since Jordan.every out in the league now just wants stats . But Im a piston fan forever I just dont like the rebuilding part we were the best team in the east for six years. I cant wiat for that to be again. sorry if any one is offended by my trade comm. but ,rebuild dont destroy. Go! Pistons!

    anyone watch stuckey? Wow he was like 2 seconds away from collapsing from fatigue, i think he actually did fall a couple times. Unfortunatley I think he’s kind of hitting the wall. He does need help, and as much as I would like to say its because he’s not making plays. The truth is the others are making it hard on him to do anything. Will is hurt and Max really isn’t stepping up leadershipwise. Kwame can do a lot but he just isn’t living up to what I want from him. Ben can only do so much and chucky isn’t exactly chauncey on the court. Even Jonas has seemed to take a step back these last few games. I think rest is really needed for these guys. To get both physically and more importantly mentallly rejuvinated

    Pistons are to predictable, you have two guards that all they now how to do is drive the ball with stuckey and bynum, Ben wallace isn’t going to shoot from the outside, Charlie does but isn’t very consistant. when stuckey brings the ball up they know he’s gonna drive the ball and once they adjust to it, usually playing zone or just taking charge they’ll lose everytime

    does anyone notice that austin daye is never aware of the shot clock and always we are caled for a 24 sec violation for him??!!

    Something to keep in mind for tonight’s game….

    In the last 10 games, the Pistons only hit the 100 points plateau 3 times. The Pistons are only averaging 87.6 ppg on this 5 game losing streak and when they were on their 5 game winning streak, they averaged 99.6 ppg.

    The Raptors are an NBA best 10-0 when limiting opponents to under 100 ppg.

    The Raptors are also 7-0 when limiting their opponents to under 40% shooting.

    Shooting 38% like they did against the Bobcats won’t cut it. The Raptors are too offensively potent for us to keep up with them if we can’t make shots.
