    Pope in. At this point, no execution by the Pistons. Probably no leadership. They miss. Pope comes up with the bound. Smith misses. They get rebound.

    Monroe fouled, makes 1-2. Snell hits. 42-29. Bynum blocked. We steal. Bynum turns it though with offensive foul. Drummond fouls. They make ? They steal the ball from us, yet again. They hit 3. 47-29. TO

    Smith his out of timeout. Noah vs. Andre. Shotclock violation. Four turns on Chi at this point 6 on us for 10 Chicago points. We miss. Boozer loses the ball. Smith misses triple. Boozer vs. Andre. Boozer to Noah and Andre fouls him. 1-2

    Siva in for Will. Monroe misses inside. Pope foul 2-2. Siva to Pope to Smith, to Monroe. Foul on Snell. Monroe makes? We are at about 4 paint points so far. Pretty bad. Monroe gets and one. They miss but Boozer bounds and hits. We miss. Rose makes and 1.

    I am only listening to the game, and yet I get this feeling: Bynum is doing nothing in terms of leadership. Coach liked what he saw from Siva, so pulled him out and gave Bynum another chance. A few turns later in quick order, and Siva was back in. Nice to see Siva hit that triple.

    At this point, imo, the team is pretty much disorganized, due to having a point guard who can't lead - not to mention starting a small forward as the shooting guard. Against Chicago, Singler can not do the job at all as a shooting guard. 55-34 Chicago

    Lets compare and contrast point guards.

    Siva is minus 1, in 11 minutes.

    Bynum has played 2 more minutes, and is minus 20.

    Do the math. If you were coach, who would you go with based on those two data points. PS, Siva hustles llike crazy.

    It's pretty ugly Lee, be glad you don't have to see it. My comments in the pre-season thread.

    72-50 So far, the best part of this game is the fact Pope is hitting his outside shots. Not all of them. But several. Predictably, with Bynum in as our floor leader, the offense is pretty lifeless.

    Odd that Billups has not played now in over a week. I guess he never expected to play much in the early games.

    0-2 for Gibson. Pope misses floater. We miss two taps. They get lay in.

    We have Bynum, JJ, Pope, Mitchell, Smith. JJ hits 3. Deng hits. JJ misses. Mitchell bounds but misses jumper. End 3rd. We are way behind. 76-53. Siva, JJ, CV, Mitchell, Pope in for us. Siva misses. Snell, Gibson, Hinrich, Teague, Nazr in for them. Mohammed hooks off glass. JJ draws foul on Mohammed. JJ 2-2. 78-55. Teague misses. Off us and OB. HInrich misses 3. Pope bounds. Siva misses. Mitchell bounds. We lose it on over and back. Teague hits on drive and is fouled. What, CV and JJ as our front line. Mitchell can not solve that problem.

    Murphy in. Teague hits. CV misses. But bounds. To Mitchell. Lost it. Gibson vs. Mitchell. Gibson travels. Mitchell offensive basketball interference. Mitchell fouls. Gibson misses. Siva gets to paint, Murphy called for foul. Makes 1-2. 85-65.

    Hinrich misses. OB to us. CV misses 3. Teague draws foul from Siva. Siva leads the Pistons with 6 assists. We have the welcome mat for anyone to go inside since CV is in game. Siva pass swiped. They miss on fast break off our turn but they get the tap in. Guess is CV did not get back.

    For game, Siva is plus minus even. Bynum is minus 15. Siva had to play with the likes of JJ and CV in his front line.

    We got out rebounded. But it was our starting guards getting out rebounded by their starting guards. Our front line in all was even in rebounds with their front line. So not a total disaster there.

    One more thing. The myth of the Bynum / Drummond connection. Drummond's only make was a hook shot.

    Good nite. Got to get up early for work.
