Blalock has been thrown under the bus, so to speak. The actual problem is Flip Murray can't play, or defend, the point. But the press keeps lumping in Blalocks play with Flips. Well, here are the facts. You throw out one bad stretch, in one game, and the Pistons have scored almost exactly the same number of points as they have given up this season while Blalock runs the point. And consider this, Blalock has no prior NBA experience. It gets worse. Remember Blalock, the guy who never scored. Well, guess what, he did put in a a few buckets his last couple of games. And-he gets benched. Benched specifically after one bad stretch for the team, in one game, that had precious little to do with Blalock himself. The worst thing Blalock did was get beat by Jeff McGinnis a couple of times. Plays involving picks-so its not like McGinnis actually just took Blalock off the dribble. Indeed, nobody is managing to take Blalock off the dribble. He is doing pretty darn good as a defender. Its great that Flip Saunders has finally decided to play Delfino some at point. But his decision to take away Blalock's minutes is flat out wrong. I know there is a similar thread, about our backup point in general. But hey, I want to separate out the discussion to just Blalock. Please, everyone, what do you like or dislike from Blalock so far.
