Yeah, huh? I read Nick's post last night which caught my attention to it. I got to go to the bathroom at eight, and couldnt go back to bed, afraid I would sleep through the game.

I wanna see Buke on Hamilton! Monta is not doing his thing against the Pistons!

Yeah, that really surprises me. It is a good thing, though. It shows that we dont have to run-and-gun in order to win a game. It would be nice if we can get that going, however.

I am with J-Rich. They need to get Buike in there. We need a big body to help shut down Hamilton, and Buike can get in there and rebound.

Hamilton is shooting right over Monta! Bigger guards give Hamilton fits just like J-rich last yr! Hamilton will have a 25 pt game if Monta just gives him those shots...

Buke is more adept to the Pistons grinding style!

Hmm the warriors will most likely lose this game. But how about a little one upper? They came back from 22 down on us, why can't we come back from 23 down on them? That would be cool and very fitting

We can come back if Petruis gives us some solid minutes again similar to his production from the EARLY part of the season. Lately he has been foolish, shooting nothing but 3 and no D...

Might as well put in POB and Wright at the same time rt now! Tough to see the W's come back after this one! Pistons are controlling everything!!!

UGLY! UGLY! UGLY! game..................trailed by 20 or more the whole way through.

What happend to Baron??? 2 points and 1 assist...........did he get injured? hope not.

Atleast we got career nights out of Wright and Bellinelli = 10p, 4r, 2as, 1blk and 5p respectively................thast something right??? the only positive I can see.

Bring on those Grizzlies and a return to winning.

Terrible game. The best part was seeing Wright and Belinelli get extended time and actually DO something with them.

As always, the box score is misleading on Wright. He slapped out 2 extra boards on one play (that he could have selfishly kept for himself), and it resulted in a bucket for Matt Barnes. Belinelli, likewise, looked much better, knocking down such a long fadeaway that his feet were behind the 3-point line at the top of the key when he released it. Those two should get some tick against Memphis. Crosshere was awful, as was Pietrus. Barnes held it down, though.

Ouch. I'm kinda happy I missed the game.

Nothing else to say, really...



Well, actually yeah. I've got something else to say. From the boxscore, seems like Wright had a nice line in the 17 minutes he play.

I really liked Wright's J. He can step out and hit it from anywhere inside the 3pt line it seems. He needs to improve his FT's though, that might be one of the main things holding him out of the starting rotation.

dint wake up til 2...missed the whole game. lookin at the boxscore it seems we were koo after the first quarter, got broke in the second and couldnt comeback. also looks like no starter saw anything past midway thru the third. in a blow out on the road i cant say im mad nor suprised...they got a back to back goin against memphis 2mrw. should win with gasol out.

Doesn't Wright just have the weirdest looking J? It's out of his hands before he jumps almost. He certainly can get it off though. Hope this can get him some tick in games we're actually in.
