    Atlanta visits the Palace holding on to the 4th seed. (1 1/2 games ahead of Detroit at the time of this post) The Hawks youth and athletisicim gives the Pistons fits, the Hawks are currently 10-15 on the road.

    If Dice is starting by then expect them to destroy us in the paint and with speed.

    Dice will not start. Don have to worry about that. Unless AJ gets injured :fingerscr. But the way MC is coaching and the rate AJ is fouling, don't be surprised Dice comes in after 4 minutes in he 1st quarter. :gaah:

    We should see a very motivated Detroit team tonight.

    Is AI supposed to be back?

    Hope not - with no offense towards AI intended. I need hope even if it will be dashed within moments of its' arrival.

    What's The Palace scoring record? I think Bibby has a chance tonight. How many dunks for Josh Smith? How many O boards?

    Buy he's so fun to watch. I just like the way he throws the ball toward the basket. Also, watching him shoot free throws is really quite a thrill. One of the most exciting plays in the game IMO.

    I'm partial to the over the head, hook shot passes he throws behind him off the dribble. That one is almost always a winner.

    My predictions. Allow me to share.
    Pistons up by 60 in the 4th quarter with 2:00 left, hawks win by 20.

    Lost to the Bulls, collapse. Team a mess. Hawks are hot.

    Expectations couldn't be lower. This is perfect. The Pistons thrive without expectations. lol

    Searching for the "D" in Detroit
    Stuckey needs to be the focal point of the offense tonight, especially if Iverson is a no-go. I don't care about his recent struggles. Bibby might just be the worst defender in the league... he can't stay in front of anyone... you and I could blow past him.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Atlanta plays a lot of zone tonight to mask Bibby's deficiencies. If that's the case, then crisp ball movement from strong side to the weakside will be key.

    I'd like to see the Pistons attack Josh Smith in the post too. Sure he piles up some gaudy block numbers, but like Camby, he is pretty weak and can be had in the post. Not sure who's gonna do this though (can we really count on Sheed? meh)

    It would be nice to see these guys put aside their differences and get some payback on the Hawks.

    Kelser... "Iverson is quietly having a very sound game."

    Very poetic.
