    This trend actually reared its head during the Phoenix game and has been present the last 3. I didn't figure they'd make it out of the Houston game, but they have managed to make up for it tonight.

    Again...

    maybe we needed this. We've been doing this too often-waiting until the fourth quarter to turn it on. This will teach us we can't do that against good teams.

    Damn!

    I know are boys are capable of coming back from anything and that the streak had to end sometime, but just NOT like this, sheesh!!! I'm not even at a place where I can see this apparent mess that's going on (maybe that's not such a bad thing) right now. If you really think about our guys were a bit out of it last night as well, the point production was vastly off from what we had been putting up previously. Our days of barely getting over 70ish points were suppose to be over, right? Irregardless folks you can bet your last dollar you won't catch a TRUE blue Detroit Pistons fan like me jumpin ship!

    I hate to say this...

    but we really should consider playing our subs in the fourth if we're still down by >20. There's no sense in overplaying our starters when we have no realistic chance at winning. Clearly, they need some rest, and someone's more likely to be injured in a messy game like this.

    very logical

    Not to sound like a quitter but it certainly sounds like the logical thing to do.... DEFINITELY just not worth the risk!

    Definitely time for the 2nd string but..

    Knowing the Mavs, Dirk will keep shooting and the Mavs will leave most of the starters in so everyone will know that they gave the Pistons an old fashion buttkicking:mad: . They won't make to the finals, but I am not sure if Pistons would want to see them there anyway....:confused:

    Learning experience

    Maybe you're right, but I wouldn't think that a veteran team would have to learn a lesson like this. The coasting is over for this team. The war begins.

    Yeah, no doubt. Pistons don't play again until Wednesday. It's not like they needed the rest.

    I'm disappointed in the execution, the discipline and the desire. The Pistons came out flat. Champs don't come out flat.

    I think these guys started to buy into the hype a bit too much. I have not been impressed with the last 4 games the Pistons have played. The defensive focus seems to be gone and the team is shooting more jump shots and not rebounding the ball well. I selected this game in the poll that this would be a lost but I had no idea we would get blown back like this.

    Oh, well the bandwagon fans and media will jump all over this game and say the Pistons are pretenders and when they played some real competition they got smoked.:mad: I think thats what this team needs!!:nod:

    Post-game quotes

    I'll be interested to hear them tonight. This is embarrassing and should be stated as such by the boys.

    Scrubs vs Scrubs

    Even their scrub are out hustling ours. :doh: Anyone want to bet our bench doesn't put up more than 20 points this last quarter? So far theirs is up 14-11 with 5:46 mins left.

    Terrible game all around I didn't see any positives except the fact we got blown the F * * * out.As stated earlier I think we needed this clear our heads and start outworking the other team again.

    Don't feel too bad guys. No way they were going to even compete in this one. They will be fine. This was a HUGE game for Dallas. Too many things were against Detroit. They will be just fine. They are the same great team they were this morning. Just add a loss to their record. Plenty more wins and several losses to come.

    It was in the stars. :) Don't worry...be happy!!!!

    8-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nice.

    Oh well

    It had to end sometime. I just wished we'd have been the first team to go 82-0 but it's alright.

    I'd like to see the boys gather themselves and just pick up and start another streak.

    Let's go Detroit.

    Oh and yeah those media and critics are gonna be all over this game. We're losing by almost 40 and will say that it's validation for them. :mad:

    But it's alright.

    Start another streak boys. GO DETROIT!!!!
