Here, this is a video I was introduced to by my friend Brady and it really
could should be a stand alone recap:
I believe everything in the above-embedded video.
And this was an exciting win not just because wins are fun, but also because the Pistons ended several losing streaks on Saturday night -- a five game losing streak at home, a four game losing streak overall, and a seven game losing streak to the Portland Trail Blazers that dated back to February 2008.
Rodney Stuckey was the major reason for this, as he was not Suckey, and scored 28 points on 8-for-15 shooting (8-for-9 from the line). Brandon Knight added 14 points and Greg Monroe had 10 points and eight rebounds.
More in a minute...
Nobody makes Jonas bleed his own blood:
- Jonas had 11 points (on 4-for-8 shooting) and five rebounds in 21-plus minutes. I said it in the game thread, but I'll say it again: TEAM JONAS
- The Pistons were 7-for-20 on spot up shots. They were a combined 13-for-19 on transition, offensive rebounds, and cut plays.
- The Pistons were outrebounded 38-34. While Detroit attempted eight more free throws, they took 14 less shots than Portland. Portland made four more shots than Detroit, but the Pistons hit four more threes and seven more free throws.
- After turning it over 25 times Friday night, Detroit only turned it over 11 times on Saturday night.
- Stuckey was 4-for-5 from three-pointers; the Pistons were 7-for-15.
- WOW, Stuckey dunks.
- Drive, dish, dunk. Man, the Pistons look sharp.
- Jason Maxiell had seven points and seven rebounds, and had a team-best +15 plus-minus.
- Damien Wilkins and Walker Russell Jr. were a combined plus-13.
