    • Austin Daye spent much of the Pistons' win over the Lakers at the top of the floor as a point forward. Daye's combination of size and agility allow him to make some uncanny passes off the dribble. He tallied only three assists, but consistently found his big men and slashers in good spots near the rim (even if those targets botched the finish). When the plays weren't there to orchestrate, Daye created for himself -- something we never saw materialize last season. He scored 22 points from every spot on the floor (7-for-12 FGs, 2-for-3 beyond the arc, 6-for-9 from the stripe), but more important for Detroit, he demonstrated a desire to orchestrate each possession, whether it was early offense or a more methodical half-court set.

    Pretty good for a first game IMO.

    We all know he's an athlete, but he needs to show the coaching staff that he can handle the ball against pressure, which he did (1 turnover) while also showing that the shooting touch he put on display in previous workouts wasn't a fluke, which he also did (going 6/8 from the field and knocking down 1 of his two threes).

    Daye was another one that showed that he is working hard on his shot. He also showed a nice handle against smaller defenders out on the perimeter. He isn't any bigger, but as long as we have Arnie none of these guys will ever be forced to put on bulk for bulks sake. On the plus side however he did lead the team with 6 rebounds, all defensive.

    Summers is still a question mark, as is his fellow GT alum. But Daye and White looked the most impressive to me from what I saw out there.

    on a related (thanks to Miami and NBA Tv) note.....




    Couldn't they have just given those fools one "master key" to the State of Florida instead of handing them 5 keys to whatever they were for while I pushed my fast forward to "4x"?

    Hey folks thank you for the info on the games. I can't see them but the recaps are like pure gold to me right now. So this is how folks feel about Lee. Lastly, any thoughts on Mac Koshwal, the 6'10" PF/C from DePaul? I saw a few games of him in 2008, thought he was pretty good, looked like a raw-poor man's Al Jefferson in the few games I watched. I think he would be a great guy at #15 on the roster.

    I have a question about the game today against the Warriors.

    Is Stephen Curry the coach ???? Really?? I've read something liek that in Austin Daye's twitter but I don't know if he is joking or what..

    Go Pistons!!! Another win tonight would be awesome!!!

    The worst part was when they kept us away from the game for an extra 10 minutes while they all struggled to put the keys on their key chains.

    Unless it's interrupted by "OMG Lebron in Miami LOL" coverage again.

    PISTONS: Furious Finish

    I'm looking forward to seeing White play -- the guy is really intriguing to me.

    And I'm loving hearing about Daye's overall court dominance and about Monroe's skills and team-first approach. Really - very encouraging stuff, IMO.

    Daye's development is a huge potential key for us. Assume that he and Monroe can be main initiators of our offense In that event, like Joe D continues to say (and for whatever reason, people on these forums seem to argue with him), there's a lot less emphasis on traditional point guards -- we seem to be fully moved to an offense where the PG's are scorers and every position on the team is used to initiate the offense, and there are many and varied scoring options - and Daye and Monroe could be perfect fits in that type of offense.

    Miami is wondering if Lebron can be a point foward and we're wonding if Austin Daye can do it?

    Yeah me too. Better quality of that site. Wow Daye just schooled the defender with a wicked crossover and layup.


    EDIT: Daye is still owning them, I think he's ripped off six straight. And Monroe runs like a deer. Good footwork and very fast. He also threw a nice dime to Summers for an easy layup and just hit a jump hook with his off hand.


    Lookin' good!

    Many times at the atdhe they don't start stream until the game has started.

    Wow, these announcers are pretty annoying.
