    Ok, the pick may be safe!! Whew! It is up to the ping pong balls. This system needs to be changed. It is ridiculous that you have to root against your team to get a draft pick. And fooling around with a top 10 pick is on the GM--shouldn't gamble with it. The Cavs have had two number 1 picks lately. They shouldn't even be eligible for a top ten pick.

    The game highlights one thing again. The Pistons guards have not produced in crunch time all year. Yes, you could throw Josh into the mix but it is the guards that initiate the offense. I think Singler hit one shot in the last 5 minutes but not much other production from the guards when the game got close. Put the Cleveland guards: Jack and Waiters on the Pistons and you would have a pretty serious team.

    Singler was plus 2 on the fact the other starters around him had pretty darn good games. JJ was playing power forward vs. a real center for much of the first half - much of the time with Smith at center. The coach craftifly engineered this loss.

    Joe thought he was going to be giving away a low value 20+ pick when he made the trade i would imagine.

    Look at the defensive end, and look how Singler could not guard anybody. This gave Cleveland good scoring ops time after time down the stretch. And the coach did nothing about it except applaud it.

    That's because the interim coach is in on the tank. If there was a game to lose this week, this was the key game.

    Got to win on Friday for the Bad boy celebration and then again on Saturday to help the Sixers set the new record. After that it's time to go 0 for April...and see if they sneak out a # 7 pick.....

    His offense seemed to make up for it as he drained 4 threes and ended up plus for the game. Notice how on the final possession, the cavs targeted stuckey, whose short flipper arms could do nothing against an nba jump shot.

    Ah yes, when Singler plays well, it's coincidence. When he plays poorly, it's commission.

    Led 82-66 at the end of three. Classic 2014 Stones to lose this one.... Our pick is getting closer

    I almost gave up on this one. After three quarters it looked hopeless but never count these Pistons out in the 4th quarter.

    Singler had a really good game...almost blew it for us. Jennings redeemed himself with some crucial misses toward the end. Stuckey was the player of the game.

    John Long was interviewed during the game. That was the highlight of the game for me. He talked about the current Pistons team and how they needed to learn basics like floor spacing etc.

    Brandon Jennings really bums me out. I think more so when he is playing "well".

    Actually, Mike Brown said after the game that he told Waiters to drive because he figured Stuckey would foul him.

    Yea, I can't believe how full of himself he was last night. It was all playground crap, like he forget he was playing in an actual NBA game (if you can call Pistons vs. Cavs that).

    That would have been a good option too.

    Cleveland actually did catch fire in the 4th. Nothing you can do about that, as the legendary mo cheeks would say.

    Matthew Dellavedova looked like a better point guard.

    Isn't it interesting, that heave by Waiters that went in could end up being the reason why Charlotte doesn't get a lottery pick from us this year. Butterfly effect.

    I haven't celebrated like I did after Waiters game-winner since Sweden scored the winning penalty to make the semis in World Cup 94. Alot of tears, alot of screaming and alot of joy.

    Character means more to me than anything and integrity is a close second..this team has niether and is an embarrassment to the standards that was set before them. They dont deserve to wear the championship colors. What are yall going to do when they battle for the lottery again next year?
