Seems like this is as good of a time as any to get back into blogging the Pistons. With Rip Hamilton’s return, I’ll be getting back into the swing of things after a month long hiatus. The hope is to catch up with the diary as well. Of course I’m having WordPress problems right now, so that makes things a touch more complicated, but I’ll manage. голова болит секс
If you’re a half glass full kind of guy, the Pistons got some top notch output from their starters in last nights win over the Bucks. Of course if you look at it the other way, you can say the bench laid an egg and the starters needed to get it done to pull out this win. голова болит секс голова болит секс
Now and Then the movie The Ballad of Jack and Rose release Tayshaun Prince led the way with 19 points and eight rebounds.

Antonio McDyess was the lone bench warrior to get it done. He scored six and hit all three of his shots while Arron Afflalo scored three on one of eight shooting and he grabbed five rebounds.
It was nice to see the Pistons win their third straight but they’re still losing ground because the Cavs have won five straight. Next up are the Magic tomorrow night. They’re 24-6 with seven straight wins so this isn’t going to be an easy one.

Next up are the last place Pacers on Friday. The Pistons have now dropped three in a row and they’re flirting with the .500 mark. A win (as well as a few Cavs losses) would be nice.
This was definitely a tale of two halfs. The Pistons got off to a horrible start against the Knicks yesterday afternoon and while they did mount a second half comeback, they still fell well short of picking up the win.

Pistons 108, Mavericks 99 (6-0)
The Pistons won and the Cleveland Cavaliers lost and that left the Pistons as the lone unbeaten team in the NBA when they beat the Dallas Mavericks. Still, the Pistons suffered a loss when Mark Aguire applied a vicious elbow on Adrian Dantley in the opening minutes of the game.

Pistons 101, Hawks 95 (4-0)
The Pistons needed an extra period in this one but the end result was their fourth consecutive win to open up the season. Isiah Thomas and Dennis Rodman both scored four in overtime to lock the game up but this was a nailbiter for Pistons fans because going into the fourth quarter, the Hawks led by 12.

This game was a little closer then the scored indicated.

The Pistons were particulary impressive in the first half in this game and they shot 63.6% from the field. Overall in the game, they shot at a 56% clip.
Nowhere to Run the movie The Pistons were without Allen Iverson again last night.

Tayshaun Prince came up big in this one. He was 10 of 13 from the field and he rained home 27 points.

Pistons 94, Hornets 85 (2-0) Hercules movie download
There were plenty of festivities as the Pistons played their first ever home game at their new stadium, the Palace of Auburn Hills. The Pistons also got a chance to see their previous seasons’ exploits honored when they raised both the Central Division title and Eastern Conference Championship banners into the rafters. It was the first titles that the Pistons had won since the team moved from Fort Wayne, IN.
The Pistons big quarter was the third when they outscored the Hornets 26-16. Adrian Dantley led the way for the second straight game and he scored eighteen points. Isiah Thomas was right behind him with 15 and he matched Joe Dumars with a team high seven assists. Three different Pistons had double figures in rebounds. Bill Laimbeer had a team high twelve, Rick Mahorn had eleven and Dennis Rodman had ten off the bench.
Defense was the name of the game in this one. The Pistons held the Hornets to just .347, while they were over 50% (.521) for the second straight game. The 2-0 start marks the first time that the team won their first two games since Chuck Daly took over as head coach in 1983.
Wag the Dog film to take their first game of the season. The Bulls took an early lead and led 20-19 in the first quarter when Bulls star Michael Jordan left the game for a breath. Adrian Dantley scored immediately there after and from then on out, the Pistons never relinquished the lead.
Adrian Dantley led the way for the Pistons with 22 points and he finished with eight rebounds. Joe Dumars scored 20 while Rick Mahorn finished with a double-double with 15 points and a team high ten rebounds. Isiah Thomas put up just six shots all game, but he did his part with fourteen assists.
Off the bench, James Edwards scored ten while the Microwave, Vinnie Johnson, rained in eleven points. The Pistons were impressive with their shooting with a .513 field goal percentage and they outrebounded the Bulls 40-35.
for Allen Iverson. With the deal, the Pistons have to move up a notch or two in Vegas and for a lot of reasons, you have to like this deal. First off, Iverson is a definite upgrade Billups. I’m a Chauncey fan like the next guy but you’re talking about one of the best guards to suit over the past several years. And even if McDyess doesn’t find his way back to the Pistons, it’ll free up some minutes for Jason Maxiell.
Saving Silverman Rodney Stuckey is the obvious loser right now because he’ll probably see a reduction in his minutes. And if you believe what you read here, Iverson is simply a placeholder for Lebron James.
Murder in the First movie Sweeney Todd rip Rip Hamilton led the Pistons in their blowout 101-83 win tonight over the Charlotte Bobcats. He scored 19 and led the team with five assists. Kwame Brown led the team with nine rebounds off the bench and Will Bynum pitched in a big way with twelve points, including ten in the fourth period. As a team, 23 assists to go with just eight turnovers is going to do it every time. five different Pistons had at least three assists.
At the end of the day, the Pistons have Iverson and a 3-0 record. Next up is a tough Toronto Raptors team on Wednesday. Rip Hamilton has to be happy because lost in all of the trade talk is the fact that Rip signed a three year extension worth an undisclosed amount.
There’s some rumors floating around over at WDFN that the Pistons are trading Antonio McDyess and Chauncy Billups for Allen Iverson. This would be pretty huge and once it’s finalized (and I have some time to think about it), I’ll post some thoughts.
I didn’t look too far ahead in the schedule, but when I saw this headline, I knew the Pistons were going to be tested sooner rather then later. Seven of their next eight games are on the road and their lone home game is against none other then the defending champions, the Boston Celtics
. You also have one of the Pistons west coast swings where they play four games in six nights including one against the defending Western Conference champions, the Los Angeles Lakers.
So something tells me the Pistons undefeated mantra will go bye bye. Hopefully that is later rather then sooner but at the end of these next eight games, we should get a good indication what the Pistons should look like for the rest of the year. The good news, five of the next six games after this eight game stretch are at home so that should help the Pistons get their legs back.
Tomorrow kicks off the 1988-89 Pistons diary. The concept is simple and has been done before, just not for basketball, at least as far as I’m aware. You’ll get to follow the Bad Boys team, game by game, throughout the season until the team captures their first ever NBA championship.
The Pistons improved to 2-0 on the season with a nice win over the Washington Wizards
. The Pistons were up by ten at the end of the first quarter but they let the Wizards back in with an eleven point deficit in the second quarter. Still, the Pistons took care of business in the second half and walked away with a 117-109 win.
Rip Hamiliton led the way with 24 points but he was nine for 21 from the field. Rasheed Wallace was seven for nine with seventeen and he had a team high twelve boards. Walter Herrmann once again contributed off the bench and he rained in 16, including a trio of three pointers.
The Pistons simply owned the glass. They had almost as many offensive rebounds (16) as the Wizards had in total (24) and the Pistons actually doubled them up with 49 total. Jason Maxiell had seven boards as did Herrmann while Rodney Stuckey pitched in with eleven points.
Next up are the Charlotte Bobcats, who are 1-1 on the season so far. As it stands, the Pistons are now just the only team in the Central with an undefeated record.
So much for testing the waters. The Pistons signed Jason Maxiell to a four year contract extension which will cost the team $20 million. Maxiell had his breakout season last year and while it seems like Maxiell is a late bloomer, this is definitely a guy who can contribute. And at $5 million per year, I have a feeling this signing is going to look like a bargain two years from now, especially is Maxiell is a bonafide starter.
He got off to a nice start in the Pistons opener. He scored seven, hit all three of his free throws, had four rebounds (three on the offensive glass) and blocked a shot in eighteen minutes of play.
