    Personally, I don't want them to start Mitchell. I want the draft pick, so I'm sticking with the Agenda Against Winning.

    The season comes down to a few games, this is one of them. Two terrible teams in semi-tank mode clashing for the 8th pick, the only all-star out, empty seats. It's because of games like this we follow this sport.

    Good work allowing the 14 point lead to be erased... Come on Cavs, surge ahead please. Such a pivotal game to save the pick....

    What a way to tank one away.....give credit to Jennings for two bad shots on the Pistons two last possessions.... Pistons give up the last 10 points of the game extend their lead to two games over the Cavs in the coveted lottery 8th spot....

    Wonder who in the Pistons.org brass was cheering Deng's winning bucket.

    Still I would have like to have won the game after having a double digit lead in the 4th.....but I ain't mad at 'em.

    The Cavs are REALLY bad. I can't believe we lost to them. I am happy that we lost to them, but I can't believe it.

    Clutchest loss that I've witnessed in quite some time. Crazy shot to win.

    You could argue that loyer was tanking by not playing bynum much and riding stuck and jerebko, but I'm not buying into that. He was trying to win the game.

    No way we lose this one. But coach brought Singler back in the game so we could lose. Singler was badly out of place, giving Cleveland someone to attack. Also, Singler can not rebound. We had the game in hand with JJ at small forward. No reason to take JJ out at all, except to let Singler lose the game for us.

    Also in this one, we got out to a good lead, but coach made sure we lost that early lead by playing a horrible bench rotation, leaving Smith out there at center, for instance, against two legitimate bigs for Cleveland. We could not rebound the ball, and Cleveland soon tied the score back up.

    In all, a tremendous effort by the coach, to give us every possible chance to lose the game. Sure, Waiters had to hit the shot, but no way Cleveland should have been in the game at that point.

    I've been giving Lee grief for awhile for the whole agenda thing, but maybe he's onto something. I mean, the Pistons have no real reason to win at this point - they're 5.5 games out with 11 to play, and it's like the team freezes up at the end of ball games. They completely abandon any semblance of an offense and fall back on the "watch Smith and Jennings take bad jumpers" strategy that, game after game, has been shown not to work. Anybody that knows anything about basketball can see this, and yet the team keeps doing it, day in and day out. Are they stupid? Maybe, I suppose, but this has stayed through two coaches now. I kind of think that the directive may be coming from up top to let them hero-ball their way to losses.

    Because they had no business losing tonight. They were kind of pounding on Cleveland for most of three quarters, and then, as is typical, the bottom fell out. It's almost not worth writing about because it keeps happening, but there was that late collapse again, mostly due to their inability to run anything resembling an offense at the end of games. I don't understand why it's not a point of discussion.

    I will say, however, that I'm glad they lost; I was smiling through the whole thing. I'm looking forward to the day when a win is more valuable to the team than a loss, because this is just a sad, sad season.

    Singler was plus 2. Jerebko was minus 13.

    It's obvious that all of the players and coaches for both teams wanted to win the game.

    Perhaps management or ownership is hoping for losses, but not the folks down on the floor. When the Cavs won, they were ecstatic like they won a championship. The Pistons were dejected both on the floor and in the locker room afterwards.
