    Our cruisers can't repel firepower of that magnitude!

    KG finds Sheed's lack of faith disturbing.

    In reality it would take an Earth sized planet about an hour to blow up from a death star blast. It would look like it was happening in slow motion - kind of like the Pistons offensive this year.

    Celts lost to the Nets and to the Pistons the last time so you never know. This would be a nice "spoiler" game to have.

    This game is on NBA TV fan night....voted on by the fans last week.....who voted for this celtic at Pistons matchup?

    Would the nation be better off with a matchup of the Pacers at lakers??

    Warriors @ Heat

    Kings @ Thunder??

    Yeah the Fans got it right...I guess. Go Pistons!

    I think this will be a good game. Looking forward to some Kenny "The Pistons have no place contending for the NBA Champisonship" Smith, and Brent Barry comments on where they think our franchise is heading. EJ is always an interesting analyst.

    Now that's just mean. Sheed's head is no where near that big.

    True, but can you see any other player in NBA history besides Sheed saying what Walker said when asked why he shoots so many threes?

    "Because there are no fours."

    Charlie Garbage stinking it up in crunch time. Doesn't even bother to lift his feet to get defensive rebounding position.

    I know he has defensive limitation, but you never know a player unless you see him game after game...however, if he was performing offensively he would not be so offensive.

    Well for the 19th time this season, the Pistons lose a game where they gave up 100+points. In fact they have only won 3 of the 22 games this year where they gave up 100pts. But when you are only averaging 92 points a game, you are going to get beat a lot and now the Pistons are 3 games shy of finishing under .500 for the second straight year.

    The Celtics vets looked weary tonight and were primed for a beating but their bench led by Nate Robinson's 4-5 three point shooting outscrubed the Pistons scrubs and vets in the 4th. The Pistons actually led 75-72 at the end of three, but as per the last three road games, the Pistons faded in the fourth throwing up bricks and playing bad D.

    Piston rookie of the Month> Jonas Jereko celebrated his 23rd birthday, leading the team with 16 pts and 10 boards, but no other team mate other than Taynk cared about this one and thats just what they did, taynk another game down the stretch. Taynkshon tried to make it respectable with two late threes, but that didn't make up for his SEVEN TAYKN turnovers.....:yellowprison:

    I will give some credit to Daye who dropped in 9 pts in the first half, but with our FA signings going 5-16 and Stuckey going 5-15, and Big Ben just barely grazing the [strike]rim[/strike] backboard on his five free throw misses, we could not hold on to win this one. ......Lets also remember that we were 3-20 from beyond the arc compared to their 9-18. For those keeping score that is 27-9 or a 18 pt differential...

    With both the Kings and Warriors losing tonight and the Pacers probable loss to the Lakers later tonight, I guess the word came down from the top to taynk so that we could stay close to the losers in the lottery sweepstakes....

    Final ~Celtics 105 ~ Pistons 100

    Not a bad game. Coached decently. Nobody had too high minutes. Very little small ball played. Hey, it was not perfect, but look what happened at the end of the game. With Tay's minutes kept down, he made 3 triples in the 2nd half, two of them quite late.

    We played Gordon some at point. But we still played Bynum too much anyway. I say until Bynum is fully healthy, just use Gordon as the backup point. Other than that, I got no complaints about this one.

    Summers played for just a moment, had a nice defensive play, and sat back down. Daye played plenty, did some scoring for us. He even made an appearance in the 2nd half. Too bad this kind of thing was not happening all season. Better late than never though.

    JJ had a solid double double. But he still passes up shots he should not.

    Ben just played the good D. Walked off hobbled at the end of the game. I wonder why he shot his free throws when it looked like he could not come back in anyway. We could have used those 2 points. Oh, I said no more complaining. Maybe just a little.

    Boston was left open way too much on the perimeter, and knocked down 3's all game long while we were missing 3's all game long. Other than this major 3 point discrepency, we played very well indeed. Too bad Dumars gave away our two best perimeter defense guys for someone who does not play for us at all.

    Boston is a pretty good team, so losing to them ain't such a bad thing. A couple more 3's made by us, a couple less by them, and we win this one. I'd say keep doing the same thing the rest of the season and things should go well.

    Rip did not hog the ball tonight. That is good to see. Everyone else made some efforts to go inside.

    Stuckey just flat out had a bad game. Off balance, whatever. He did especially poorly in crunch time.

    I was going to say we would have been at a disadvantage had he left the game because then Doc Rivers could have picked anyone on our roster to shoot. Then I realized - Ben Wallace is the one Doc Rivers would have WANTED shooting those free throws. :frusty:
