Pistons Gut Out Win Against Portland

Post  Sissy1946 on Sat Jan 21, 2012 11:16 pm

Stuckey with 28 points tonight, had a bad play with 20 seconds left though, drove the lane with 4 people on him & missed the rim completely, even Kelser thought he was gonna pass the ball but we know Stuckey don't we? If he ever learns to finish at the rim consistently he could really help this team, Pistons had a 16 point lead earlier but held on & gutted it out for the win, everyone played pretty decent tonight, got to give them credit even though Fat Joe's trying to sabotage this team by acquiring no bigs for them. Pistons win 94-91. wpn Joe

Stuckey is the game's hero!

Post  Grizz on Sat Jan 21, 2012 11:29 pm

Wow .. maybe a statement game by Stuckey, who has taken a lot of flack in this forum, and by me .. I didnt think we had a chance against the Trailblazers .. If Stuckey and Knight can become a great team of backcourt mates .. Basketball Basketball the Pistons,, and Joe Dumars .. are in very good shape .. (still need 2 good bigs but .. ) cheers cheers cheers

Agreed! Knight/Stuckey looked great together. We all have been calling for it since the summer, don't know what took so long, but finally they listened. party

Pistons CRUSH Wise & Frankie's Crystal Balls

A 20 point loss? A mauling?

Not tonight, Knight & Stuckey are finally on the down low, and scoring.

Stuckey had a sweet throw down, and I wish he did more of that because he has the size and speed. Stop tossing up those prayers, and get a clue down the stretch, that's not the time to start bulling your way to the hole in traffic!

Confession is good for the soul, so I will confess that I agreed with Wise & Frankie that the Pistons would lose, I just didn't post it.

This was a quality win, and shows that when we harness the talent, sometimes we can surprise... even us, LOL!

Yes...most of us have been calling for Stuckey and Knight to start in the backcourt all season.


Also, who here likes Walker Russell Jr about a hundred times more than Bynum as our reserve PG? Everyone?

And you know why? Because Walker Russell Jr actually is a PG.

Let's just hope Joe doesn't sign Russell to a $10 million contract after the season, like he did Bynum.

it was nice to see the win.
and i was able to talk shyte in the middle of a whole bunch of blazer fans, which was very nice.
one thing about stuckey...
he had his best moments when he was guarded by matthews, a very good defender at the 2 guard.
but he was just too quick and fast for matthews. because he was able to get around him he actually had better looks at the basket than he normally does.
normally, he is defended by smaller, quicker point guards who can keep up with him but just get overpowered as he goes up for his shot.
but they are always there, affecting his shot.
maybe he is better off at the two, because while he wont have the size advantage on most 2's, he will probably have an advantage, like tonight, in speed and quickness. and that kind of advantage is probably more important for a backcourt player.
just a thought.
and yes, it is nice to actually see a real point guard on the team. russell has his issues - size, outside shot - but he does know how to run an offense, and the stability he brings when he is on the court definitely helps.
it also points out how blind joe d was all those years, basically maintaining that the team didn't need a real point guard. yes, the team needs one. it is obvious now.
more to come...

Another win for the collective intelligence of the Pistons forum. As for our guard rotation, I give you credit Murph for being the first to step up and say Walker Russell Jr should be our bench PG and not Bynum. His time has passed. As for money, Russell and Wilkins are more than sufficient as bench guards, let's work a deal for Gordon and Bynum now; we don't need to wait to move their contracts and they represent a hell of a lot of money we can use (properly Joe)! Two mistakes Joe should start working on correcting A.S.A.P.

Am I the only one growing uncomfortable the longer Villanueva lingers on IR with this ankle? I can't help but remember what happened with the late, great Mr Waymon Tisdale. In all seriousness, that would be awful. With that being said, it's time to amnesty his ass.

Our backcourt seems straight unless Lil' Larry f#&ks it up when Gordon comes back.

just a side note...
the team was on the last game of a 6 game road trip and they definitely were tired. so instead of taking the ball to the hole they threw up long jumpers. definitely not their usual game.
doesn't matter in the long run, but as i noted before the game, this is one of those games on the schedule that favors the home team and not the team thinking about heading home.
last game of a long road trip is always a tough game. detroit fans are well aware of that from watching teams go to the west coast and getting their butts kicked in similar circumstances.

This exactly how I feel. Not only do we not need Bynum or Gordon, but they make us worse by playing them. If we can't trade them I'd rather they sit on the bench with Charlie V and Austin Daye. idk why those 2 can get benched for sucking, but Gordon/Bynum always get to play no matter how stupid they play.

Just go with Russell and Wilkins, those are kind of players I like - vet min guys who play smart and play hard every minute, and make winning plays, not selfish stat-padders who take dumb shots and turn over the ball every other time they touch it.

EXACTLY!!!

The whole point to me is that you need role players that know they're role players, and work hard at it.

NOT role players that think they're stars(CV & BG), or wanna be stars(Bynum) and want star treatment!

"So where are all the Stuckey haters?"................

Yippee............he had one good game. After calling for the Blazers to maul the Pistons, you sure you should be gloating about anything?;-) A good game against a tired team...........big whoop. Btw.........he was -1 for the evening, and Maxiell was +15. Danillo Gallinardi had 37 and 11 last night..............shit happens.

Had to work late last night and missed the game. The Pistons are 1-11 when I watch them, and 3-2 when I don't.

I think Rett is talking about next season. Stuckey will have to average stats like last night the rest of the season and the 10 go on a 10 game win streak before I see some hope.

The Real Notes and Quotes from the Portland game

Post  Fennis Dembo on Sun Jan 22, 2012 11:34 am

The Real Notes and Quotes from the Portland game not the stuff we get from the beat writers - by Biff Burns

Coach Frank: We really needed this win. I was beginning to feel like the captain of that Italian cruise ship as it was going down and I don’t know how to swim.

Biff Burns: You played a great game tonight, Rodney.
Stuckey: To quote my man, Julius Caesar, “I came. I saw. I conquered. And I kicked some serious butt tonight.”
Biff Burns: You did indeed.

Dumars: If I smoked I’d light up a victory cigar just like Red Auerbach used to do with the Celtics. Most of the press is too young to remember that except for those two old farts Mike O’Hara and Biff Burns. I heard Betty White is Biff’s younger sister.

Biff Burns: How’s your health, Charlie?
Charlie V: Two hours is a really long time to sit and watch a game. I need a softer chair with more cush for my tush. Next time I’m getting that written into my contract.

Biff Burns: The team was really up for this game.
Coach Frank: Motivation comes in many forms. I had the motivational speaker Tommy “The Terminator” Tortelli from the local “Goodfellas Club” work his magic with the team earlier today in a special meeting.

Tommy: I just told dees guys. Losing, forget about it. I made dem an offer dey couldn’t refuse. Kuester, McGrady, Curry, Wilcox dey didn’t win here. Dey sleep wit da fishes. You don’t wanna be like dem mooks. I didn’t think so. Da Goodfellas have 100k riding on yous guys winning tonight. We really hate to be disappointed. I can’t stress dat enough. Bada-bing, victory.

Coach Frank: Fear can be a marvelous motivator. It is a very under used tool in pro sports.
