    Look for Prince to have a lockdown game on Pierce tonight making him think twice before talking about Tay's defense. Detroit 108 - 82

    I like this Celtics team. I think they are one player, and perhaps one more year from being a lock for the second round of the playoffs.

    I know everyone is steamed at The Truth, but hey, the guy is a great baller and has had some amazing games against Tayshaun. Pierce knows how to make plays at the end of the 4th quarter with the game on the line.

    the ball hits at an angle so all that's left is a mark that says: DING.

    I Am Surprised At Your Prediction on The Score

    First game back home for Eastern teams from a West Coast trip is always one that you want to stay away from when it comes to predicting the score and or wagering on it, especially taking the home team if you have to give a lot of points.

    I am not sure why, but history will show you that Eastern teams seem to play down a level or two from the normal level in their first home game after a Western road trip.

    Oh yeah, defense looks sweet. 60 pts in a half. Gotta love it.

    they will settle down in Second half. However, I stick with my earlier post we need to play Darko more, Blocked shots is down big time thus far this year.

    We are down only 10 after they shot over %60. Got to believe that number will come down this half.

    Fourth quarter

    Maybe so, but I don't think it's a great way to play. Coast in the first half and then hope you lockdown in the second half. The Pistons can probably get away with it, but I think it's a dangerous precedent.

    Blaha

    I'm listening to the game on WDFN (Blaha). I've never listened to P's games before, and I have to say (at the risk of offending some people) that I really don't enjoy him. He's a homer to the extreme.

    I grew up in Cincinnati, and when I was little I used to listen to Cincinnati Reds games. The announcer, Marty Brenneman, always called 'em like he saw 'em. If the Reds were playing well, he'd say so. If not, he'd call them out. Blaha makes too many excuses when the Pistons aren't playing well ("they have West Coast legs").

    Were you expecting Blaha to give the other team love?
    He'll grow on ya.... very knowledgable and he put spice into the broadcast.. (check out Blaha thread).

    All we gotta do is pound it inside and the game is in the oven

    Have the Pistons set a record for 3-point plays the old way this game? I think CB had 3-4 alone in the third.

    @TBird - Yeah George is a homer, he's a lot better with Laimbeer as he generally plays the devil's advocate role.

    Impressive 7th straight win. 15 points, looks like Army wasn't too far off, it was a late game blowout.

    I like that Boston gave them a scare and forced the Pistons to beat them. This Celtics team is decent.

    Still basically a 7 man rotation. Very curious indeed.
