    This game begins a tough 5 game road trip for the Pistons. Will either (or both) of these teams have any new acqusitions for this contest? The first two weeks after the All Star break could tell us if the Pistons will make a run for the 4th seed or 7th seed.

    Since the Cavs are in a good position to make a run at the title now, why wouldn't they trade Szczerbiak's contract to get one more piece?

    $13M. They could even trade him for someone who is making $13M, but is underperforming.

    And they should try to get him.

    $13.0 expiring for $15.2 (+16.3 + 17.3 for next 2 years).

    Cleveland would need to add another small piece, but shouldn't be a problem. Would NJ want to help Cleveland that much?

    Getting out of Vince Carter's contract doesn't seem like it should be a very high priority. New Jersey is pretty flexible even with him, and he's been playing well. That is the reason the deal wouldn't go down.

    Mo Williams for 40+.

    Amir Johnson leading us to a 10 pt lead before he sits and we give it all back.

    Now that Tandoori's decided to change things up yet again Amir will probably be lucky to see 5 seconds. I'm betting on another DNP-CD.

    Not feeling that score...it will be close but another 4th quarter meltdown. I want to be wrong.

    Can you imagine if we actually win this? Then win all the games on this trip? Get right back into contention.

    As long as I am making fantastic predictions, I might as well go all the way. :)

    I admire your optimism Roscoe!

    Pistons have won 4 of the last 5 games in Cleveland, so maybe they do have a chance of winning tonight.

    I look at it like this.

    • We have nothing to lose
    • If we're ever going to give it our all this season, it will be over the next few games
    • A low scoring game plays into Curry's strategy of scoring as few points as possible
    • If we play small ball, Rip will not duck under LBJ. He'll take off his mask and beat the King with it.
