We threw the bodies on Dwight Howard and he could not handle it, threw Ben Wallace on him, Monroe, Jerebko, Maxiell, and of course, Rodney Stuckey barreling at him like a runaway train.
Hedu Turoglu is Orlando’s version of Charlie V, long can handle the ball allergic to paint, no defense, but he costs Orlando $4 more than our guy who did a very good job along with Austin Daye of warming our bench.
If I didn’t know better I would say that Frank is benching anyone who can’t defend. I have really noticed Ben Gordon trying a lot harder on defense.
Better team won. Remember how when we had ‘sheed we always dominated Orlando it was just a given, we always wished for that matchup in the playoffs, because even tho they were a great team, we had their number.
That’s what tonight looked like.
Prince looked very old. Every time he caught the ball, he was like “Slow down young fellas, I have to catch my breath.” And he also got bowled over again! That’s the third time in as many games, he was caught in a deep trap late in the game on the side and Orlando just pushed him to the ground.
Did I say this team was finished? Did I saw we were awful? I take it all back. We looked great, go pistons.
PS I want to welcome back any bandwagoners who decided after this game they might want to be a pistons fan again instead of a bulls fan.
wow BG lighting it up 8-15 fgm, 2-3 3pm 6 assists. I really hope his game continues through out the season. Great D from Ben containing Howard and Moose & JJ grabbing more rebounds than howard.
Ben Gordon was pretty sweet. It was a good game. Honestly this this game showed how we have a future in some young stars
Great game! JJ, Moose, Max, Ben, BG, Knight, Stuck, Prince… All of them had great moments. If we can get this kind of effort and chemistry through the rest of the season, then we’ll have some fun. Loved the Moose dunk to finish the game.
Refs were driving me crazy with those late whistles though. I hate that shit…
