The Pistons vs. The Lakers

The 11-23 will play the third game of their road trip in Los Angeles to face the Lakers. The 23-11 Lakers are 10-9 since starting the season at 13-2 have and have won four straight against the Pistons by double digits.

No word yet on Chris Wilcox, who didn’t play in Utah with a groin pull. But I am guessing we’ll see Tracy McGrady starting at point guard, especially after his near triple double against the Jazz.

    yeah im glad tracy mcgrady gonna keep starting, it was good. And i even liked Tayshaun performance last game. He didnt try to pad his stats with jump shots, he went in for it. That was old tayshaun hungry and ready.
    This game is very winnable and i think we will. Lakers going down lol

    I like the five guys on the floor right now:

    T-mac, Rip, Tayshaun, Charlie V and Monroe.

    Gawd, we suck at free throws. Are Stuckey and Rip the only ones who know how to shoot FTs on this team?

    the lakers took off the 1st half, pistons looked great. 2nd half, the lakers played hard at the defensive end, the pistons were like “Please dont hurt us” and quit

    go ahead and blame q if you like, I just think the pistons are soft

    I thought we were really in this one – then I noticed Summers on the floor. How did that get away so quick? I understand that the Lakers turned it up a notch, but we handed this one to them with all of our turnovers.

    Time to get ready for Philly.

    Thing is, this season we’re not watching PISTONS BASKETBALL, forget about the blow out loss. They show no heart, no passion, no defense, lots of hesitation moves… This hurts me a lot. I’m from Mexico and I don’t have the chance to watch many Pistons games. Tonight i had the chance and i watched a team with no brain and no heart.

    I’m sad about it but i keep cheereing on MY PISTONS til death!

    Maybe they can bring in ole Rich Rodriguez in to install the spread offense, then maybe we can start winning lol

    maybe im just imagining things but did it seems like almost everytime he had the ball stuckey would drive and turn the ball over or have his shot blocked or just miss in the second half?

    you really cant blame one person but thats what i saw

    and YES i do think this was a easily winnable game for us. Even though we didnt win

    this does not come as a surprise actually. a loss here was expected. i just hope the pistons get on with the youth movement and have the younger players start or play more minutes.
