What's wrong with giving the reserves some experience in crunch time? It might pay off in the playoffs. What if a starter goes down and Delfino, Maxiell, Hunter, or even Amir are called upon during crunch time? At this point, it really doesn't matter if the Pistons win or lose these last couple of games. Billups called the game a learning experience for the Pistons' reserves. Delfino said this will only boost the bench's confidence and keep the reserves sharp with the playoffs around the corner. "It was a close game and I'm just glad that coach had confidence in us," Maxiell said.
