    Huge game tonight with playoff implications. A win by the Pistons over the Thunder and a win by the Clippers over the Trailblazers, moves the Clippers to the second seed and the Thunder to the third in the west.

    The team that finishes third will play the Warriors and may have the advantage in the middle as Andrew Bogut is out of the playoffs. So will the Thunder rest Westbrook and settle on 2 or 3 , or hope that Clippers will lose to the Blazers? Blake Griffin was suspended for tonight's game vs the Blazers due to a 16th tech last night.....(that maybe over turned).

    The two seed will play either the Grizzlies or the Mavs.

    As far as the Pistons tying with the Kings for the 7th spot......The Kings will now play a meaningless game vs the Suns who are now eliminated from the playoffs. With Cousins also suspended for his 16th tech, it's a tossup as to who will win...although it will be a home game for the Kings.

    This game would be more exciting if FOX Sports Detroit gave Blaha and Kelser the night off and instead played the Benny Hill score.

    29 or 30 wins...doesn't sound too important to us.
    2nd or 3rd seed for them...sounds more important.

    Lineup right now: Siva, KCP, Datome, Mitchell, Jerebko

    Should have tried this lineup 2 months ago.

    These guys played better than the Thunder scubs and built a 10 point lead. But as soon as the starters returned, the Thunder got it back close it to the 1 point halftime lead.

    Well, Singler's doing his part to get OKC back in this game...LOL

    a win tonight would prove this Pistons team hates us.

    Singler has 20 points. The Pistons have four players with 20 or more points. When is the last time that happened? Twenty years ago....1994.

    Durant with a pedestrian 40 points so far.

    Great effort.....but..Dre fouling out and the Thunder Bigs able to stay in there with 5 fouls for over 5 mins may have changed a few shots and definitely grabbed a few more boards..

    Oh well, now the Clipper game in Portland means nothing as their announcers just gave the Piston-Thunder score. But then again...they left Blake and CP3 at home in LA....assuming that the Thunder would win anyway.....

    No one on the Pistons can guard Durant. Sometimes you will see coaches put their worst defender on a stud like that because you're going to have to help and double with your other defenders irregardless.
