Game Notes
Detroit, off to a 13-2 start under first-year coach Flip Saunders, also boasts the NBA's best road mark at 8-1, with the lone loss coming in a 119-82 drubbing at Dallas that ended the Pistons' season-opening eight-game win streak - one shy of the best start in franchise history.

The Ws will come out strong. They still feel they need to prove that they can play with the higher echlon teams and will be hungry for a win after loosing last night.. Lets hope Troy will be back.

As impact players go, BD is huge for our team. Positively and negatively. He makes us competitive, entertaining, and most important, a winner. If he goes out, i'm not sure who will be the teams floor leader. I'm sure Fisher would be put in, but he is hardly a starter. He is better off the bench. Also, Ellis and Miles that experienced.

Ugh... worse feeling about this game then the bad feeling I had about the Suns. Besides, the Warriors can't just lose one and then bounce back against a top league team. Sorry guys... -5.

I put -1. I think their level is higher than ours. But hopefully not by much. I think we will give them a game though. If they win, they will have to earn it.

Foyle, like Murphy, is questionable for tonight's game also because of a flu illness. :(

Tough to ask but this is the chance for Diogu, Taft and Biedrins to show what they can do! If both Murphy and Foyle don't play, the team will either compete with the young guys or get destroyed on the boards. Baron and JRich need to drive, drive!!!!!!!

Slightly off-topic, but ESPN announcers on the Nets-Cavs game just mentioned late night games tonight and they suddenly went off for half a minute talking about Baron being on fire, and Dunleavy and J-Rich playing well in the Suns game. Heh heh, nice to get a bit of recognition.

Anybody know why Hamilton is still wearing that mask?

I don't know the exact story but he has "boxers" nose and apparently he's one really good shot from having permanent damage to his face. Someone else could probably explain it better, but the gist is he has to wear that the rest of his career
