    Washington 120 Detroit 114 ( Double OT)

    Tough loss. After trailing for most of the game the Pistons cameback early in the 4th seemingly on way to pushing the game up to 10+ points and winning in fashion as we are used to are thwarted by Chuckie Atkins 4 triples in less than 2 mins of play.

    Sheed stepped up big 33 points ( career high as a Piston ) and 11 boards making up for Rip's off night and Bens foul troubled game. Tay filled in on the glass with 6 offensive boards ( he only had 3 total prior to tonight).

    Without Ben and Billups in the 2nd OT and almost perfect free-throw shooting by the Wiz in the 2nd OT the Pistons just could not get it done.

    Game

    This looks like a game that can potentially be high scoring.

    I agree with BrotherHQ

    Pistons 109 Wiz 92 ( missed free throw )

    This is not good. Pistons down by 17 with 8:15 to go in the second Q.

    Wizards came to play. Pistons getting outboarded 19-11.

    I didn't realize

    Jamison was this good a rebounder. 14 boards in the third? C'mon Pistons.

    Atkins

    Good thing they fouled him out. He was killing them with the three-ball. I put a missing-person's ad out for Rip.

    Nail biter!!

    Jamison had 13 boards at halftime! Chucky was a killer tonight. Arroyo could not stop him. CB had to come in foul him out, but the offense stalled after that. Still looking for Rip:confused: Can he save us and get the winning shot?

    Every now and again

    Rip turns in a real stinker. I'm listening to the game on the radio. Is someone on the Wiz playing great D on him? Sheed really kept them in this one. Glad he got the last shot. If Detroit gets something, ANYTHING, from Rip, they win it in regulation.

    See, this is what happens when you try to outscore people instead of defending well. Furthermore, this game is a perfect example of why LB would pull guys with 2 early fouls. Ben has been on the bench all night with fouls.

    Not only is no one stopping Arenas, Atkins of all people was having a field day.

    ...and I have had it 10 games into the year with players going all the way to the rim (a la Butler) and no one even takes a step toward the guy to try and block the shot. Call me crazy.

    there is no reason on earth to lose at home to Washington. ESPECIALLY when they are on a 5 game skid. This game sucked.:mad:

    Live and die by the three?

    23 three-pointers tonight. Man, too many. I didn't expect Ben to make that free throw, but he saves the Pistons AGAIN. Hey, Rip, where are you buddy? :attention

    If our guards aren't going to defend, they'd damn well better help out with rebounds when our bigs go to clean up their messes. Poor game all around by our backcourt except for Arroyo. When they took him out for Billups, the lead slipped away.

    Our starters have certainly earned a lot of slack, but that doesn't give them a free pass. We should have seen much more of the bench tonight. As for Chucky, he was just unconscious. Even when he was guarded he was scoring from a couple feet beyond the arc.

    Hell, at the least you don't want to guarantee that he'll score. Apparently, 'Gross Los' couldn't keep Atkins from droppin 20 on his %%%%%.
