Unhappy 9 Game Losing Streak; Happy New Year

The Pistons couldn't shake their losing, or ankle rolling, ways on New Year's Eve against the Bulls, falling 98-87 at The Palace.  It was the Bulls first road win since mid-November.  

Ben Wallace and Rodney Stuckey (twice) rolled their ankles in the loss, but returned to play strong minutes.  We'll see if their injuries swell up in the morning and cause them to miss any time.  Luckily, the Pistons don't play again until the 5th, so they should be able to rest some of their nagging injuries (I'm looking specifically at you, Charlie V) and these new ones.  

Despite rolling his ankle twice, and needing to go to the locker room after the second, Stuckey finished as the most effective Pistons player.  He scored a game-high 22 points on 9-18 shooting, dropped six dimes, and had four steals.  Ben Wallace grabbed nine rebounds, although counterpart Joakim Noah collected the lion's share with 21.

I don't know if we'll have a full analysis on this one up tonight because we'll all be blowing our New Year's kazoos and drowning out the 2009 memories for the Detroit Pistons.  Happy New Year, 'stons fans -- let's hope it brings more wins and less ankle injuries.
