    Check out Rip's quote from ESPN. It's a hoot.

    Re: Homecourt matters not at all--

    the pistons should get one game on the road at least because of the 2-3-2 format.

    Re: game report

    Would you be happier if Flip emptied the bench and we lost? Is that better "prep" for the playoffs? Sorry to tell you, but the bench isn't going to be playing big minutes in the playoffs either. Arroyo will be getting his 5 minutes in close games or 12 minutes in wide-margin games. Delfino (unfortunately) won't be playing big minutes, and so forth. So, what exactly are you "waiting for"? That bolded comment in particular makes zero sense to me.

    You are missing the point

    The bench for sure gets cut back in the playoffs. But before the playoffs, the bench guys need to play a ton, to get sharp. That way, those five mintues are productive ones. Further, with the bench playing a lot, those starters will be fresh and at their best for the playoffs. Starters do not need much to keep their game sharp at this point. The rest is much more important.
