    It's almost halftime and Kyle Singler is the only Piston who isn't negative....(if you follow the plus/minus).

    I was watching the NCAA game...I forgot these two tankers were playing until my phone reminded me. Pistons gave up 65 points in the first half...., that normally spells l-o-s-s.

    In situations in which plus/minus makes Singler look good, the stat does not apply. Sure, Jennings, Smith, and Monroe were heavy negative in the first half while Singler was on the bench, but Singler got them confused before he sat down.

    I tuned in and the first play I see is him giving up a 3 ball.....that's at least a -3 to add to his net totals....

    You got to look at specifics. When Singler sat, we had JJ out of position at power forward while Pope played small forward. This is utter nonsense. PS, Singler has not done a thing in the game yet to give a reason for him being in the game.

    Jerebko is on fire. He seems to thrive when he gets minutes at the power forward position.

    OKay I will take the W on this one....after all being down 19...they deserve to win a game to treat the few thousand that showed up.

    Only one more home game before Dumars leaves, vs the Raptors next Sunday and they should be able to tank that one.

    Even though Siva may never hit a jump shot in his career and gets stuffed in the paint on nearly every attempt, I find him more effective overall than jennings.

    We came from way behind to beat a dreadful team in our building with their best player in street clothes. woohoo! Screw you celtics... even though you wanted to lose.

    This was actually one of their more exciting games down the stretch. the back and forth by Stuckey/Dre and Bayless/Green was probably the most exciting game the fans had seen at the Palace in awhile. That almost three by Bayless was almost halfway down.....and believe you me, if this was the last game of the season and we needed the win to get the last playoff spot, it would have dropped in for the trey and probable win....for them..

    The crowd did get a good show tonight. The players seemed happy. It's probably a good idea to win once in a while. I watched the Bill Simmons interview with Larry Bird before the game to get some Celtics hate going. They really hated Billy Laimbeer.
