The 21-40 Pistons are in Cleveland to take on the Cavaliers tonight. Good news for Pistons fans not in the local area…finally a nationally televised game for you. Bad news, it’s the Cavs.
This is what it has come to, this is an outtake for NBA.com’s preview of this game.
Another inferior opponent awaits the Eastern Conference’s top team, but this club won’t be in the bidding for the reigning league MVP.
Detroit used the money it freed up in last season’s franchise-altering, Chauncey Billups-Allen Iverson deal to sign Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva, who are now relegated to reserve roles. It could now take a couple of seasons for the Pistons to again be competitive.
Detroit allowed a season-high for points as its losing streak continued with a 128-104 loss to the Knicks on Wednesday.
Another defensive effort like that could spell trouble for Detroit as the Cavs are averaging 114.8 points on 52.3 percent shooting during their winning streak.

this is isnt gonna be pretty, all im gonna say :/
at least i get 2 watch this one
I guaransheed a Piston’s win tonight!!!
I don’t care of we lose the rest of our games…as long as we beat the Cavs i will be happy for the rest the this basketballl year. haha
Leading by 15, please let us keep it.
I really just am so confused as to why and how we spent so much money on 2 bench players
what happened to stuck, I just flipped it on?
Simply un-stucktacular. Come on Rodney! Get well soon!
That’s a definate downer, hope he’s ok, not for basketball, but just for life in general.
I am very concerned about Rodney. Remember last year when he had that little episode toward the end of a game and they ran some tests on his heart? I always had a bad feeling about that. Pray for Rodney and his family. This could potentially be very serious.
for get my last comment, I’m pleasantly surprised with the way the pistons are playing so far. Even though its anyones game right now (end of 3rd quarter) the pistons are in it to win it
R.I.P. Rodney Stuckey
@Jorge: That is absolutely uncalled for.
You stay classy Jorge…
oh wow i just heard that stuckey collapsed, i wish him the best and a speedy recovery
this isnt a good time for this either, i think some of us remember what happened just yesterday 20 years ago when hank gathers collapsed during a game
Dang, is it getting worse? Why did it heppen to Stuck? it must be we suffered with this team not enough this season and now it’s Stuckey with heart problems…
I watched it when it happened and Heather Cox reported that Stuckey might have had a seizure. I am just relieved to hear that it wasn’t Cardiac Arrest. Heather said that Stuckey is now stable so let’s all hope he gets well soon.
get well soon stuckey. wow.. jj with big ben like numbers, including points.
For as much as I really hate everything about the Cavs, they really surprised me with the class they showed after the game with their concern for Rodney. It was such an excellent show of sportsmanship. Hoping the best for a speedy recovery…
No way the cavs win this if Stuckey finished, Jorge you are a jackass
