The Pistons are the Grizzlies Pre-Thanksgiving treat

by | Nov 25, 2010 | 6 comments

Another third quarter collapse for Detroit in their 84-105 loss to the Grizzlies Wednesday night. Memphis outscored Detroit 20-9 over the final 5 minutes of the third quarter after Detroit had cut their lead to 60-59. Zack Randolph put up 21 and grabbed 14 boards for the Grizzlies as Detroit looked tired, uninspired and frustrated.

Key Points:

  • The Grizzlies scored a ridiculous 68 points in the paint. Do we need help down low or what.
  • No interior defense.
  • Come on Rip another ejection… Rip got tossed after two technical fouls for the second time in four games.  Get over it Rip or take a seat on the bench.
  • Kuester a tech after Rip got tossed for his second.  Things just  arent looking good for Q.

Wallace still looks very tired.  Maybe his resurgence last season was a fluke.

  • Greg Monroe continues to show signs that he will be a great player.  Monroe scored 6 with 8 boards, a block, a steal and a nice coast to coast layup.
  • Stuckey led Detroit with 17 points n 6-for-15 shooting.
  • Nothing very positive to say about this one, take it and move on.  The thing I’m upset about was the fact that they looked like they quit playing after the half.
  • Try not to spoil your Holiday by watching the Highlights. Via

  • Those of you in the US, enjoy your Turkey the day after the Pistons played like ones.

    It was obvious that they needed front court help last year already so why has nothing been done about it? Come on Dumars, DO SOMETHING!!

    I am so uterly and completely done with Rip at this point. Dudes got to go. I don’t care if you have to take 1 cent on the dollar for him. Get him out of here. The guy is starting to be a cancer to this team………. and the league. Woah, I sound like Kevin Garnet.

    Here’s my opinion. Trade Rip and Tay and somehow get Jason Thomson in return. Finish out the year with Stuckey at the point, and then draft a real point guard with what’s looking like it will be a pretty good pick. And then slide Stuckey over to shooting guard and he and Ben Gordon can share the minutes.

    Really starting to believe that Dumar’s is not allowed to do anything until the sale has gone through.
    I agree on the Thompson scenario though we need his energy would be great next to Greg Monroe or Ben Wallace.
    Liking the idea of having Gordon start in the next game as well about time Kuester offered something different i just hope Max doesn’t start again.
