Game Tips at 10:30 pm ET
My friend Jimmy sent an e-mail today with the subject: "Clippers Plane Crash?" It didn't happen, but it was a pivot to a discussion about the best possible team comprised of bench players. His team?
C: Paul Millsap
Bench: The Birdman
Keys for Detroit
Crash the boards -- This wasn't a great rebounding team with Camby. Feast, young Jonas, feast!
Get it to the vets -- Now that Rip and Tay are healthier, the Pistons are getting great production from the ensemble of Rip, Tay, Gordon and Stuckey, and the team has been playing much better as a result.
Play Daye - I have the feeling I can cut and paste this for the remainder of the season. Seriously, how does a lottery bound team not find minutes for its first round pick?
Question of the Game
Can the Pistons make a last ditch run at the playoffs? A 19-7 finish would put them in the hunt. Remember when we'd be disappointed if the Pistons couldn't win 19 out of 26 games? Sigh...
Bill Simmons' article on the state of the NBA is a good enough reason to get drunk and surly.
