    While I can understand your frustration with Flip (I literally just finished typing an email to my father complaining about Flip Sr.), to say that you're "done with the Pistons", seems a bit extreme IMO.

    Talk about a tough crowd. The Pistons have been one of the two best teams in the league for half a decade now. They currently have the 2nd best record in the entire league.

    Man, if that kind of production makes you want to jump ship, you sure aren't a Lions fan. :stirthepot:

    Well, Lindsey was one of the keys to the win tonight, in a game they really needed to win. I'm cool with that.

    The reason given by the announcers during the game was that Stuckey tweaked his surgically repaired hand in the Mavs game, so they activated Hunter for this game.

    Because Flip is about winning...and a 3 game losing streak would not have bode well in Piston Nation. Give Hunter a Flippy point for offsetting Vaughn's aggressive ness

    I thought he had tweaked his ankle during practice.

    What I see is

    1. The second best record in the NBA
    2. Wins at Boston and San Antonio, the two teams with the best home records in the NBA.

    Please don't leave.

    Stuckey didn't play in the second half because they are concerned about an ankle tweak he got in practice (iirc).

    hunter playing in the 2nd half didn't bother me at all, and i can live with what seemed to be the mins the way they went in the second half as the game tightened.... but i don't get the 1st half mins with a lead of close to 20 at one point and aa doesn't see the court? that really bothers me and leads me to think that come playoffs flip will be the same flip we have seen the last two years which isn't a good thing.

    Oh ok, that's probably right then. I heard them say that he tweaked something, but I thought they said his hand. I was only half paying attention though.

    It's both. He tweaked his ankle AND his hand.

    They showed Stuckey eating what looked like a candy or energy bar on the bench...that is the first time I have ever seen any players eating anything on the bench during a game...normally they are consuming is a drink..

    Well, if you're not going to play, might as well chow on something. :MusicBigGrin:
