Just snippet from the story I just looked at. Link Follows.
He saw three of his players put up 20 point, 10 rebound games -- the first time the Pistons had three in one night since 1997 -- and post an impressive 113-96 win over Philadelphia.
That was the good news. The bad news was that Detroit's performance gave him more reason to wonder why they are still on the outside looking in at the playoff spots in the terrible Eastern Conference. The Pistons entered Saturday's busy league schedule in 10th place in the East, a half-game behind ninth-place New York and a game-and-a-half behind the eighth-seeded Bobcats.
Even if Gores isn't at the Palace for every game, he pays very close attention to his team's results. That means he knows the Pistons would be comfortably in a playoff spot if not for their habit of blowing second-half leads.
"We're not that far out of it, and that's frustrating, because I know this team is better than its record," he said. "At the same time, there is a lot of hope, because this team has a lot of possibilities."
The triple 20/10 night was a perfect example of why Gores sees so much promise in his team. It is a very impressive achievement, considering the teal-clad trio of Grant Hill, Bison Dele and Lindsey Hunter needed a triple-overtime game to do it, while this group did it in regulation.
