But they are playing the Pacers, so they will shoot 159% tommorrow.
Kstat, what did Wade do to the ref?
Wade turned an ankle running into nesterovic, and wade just stopped playing picked up the ball and started limping around.
The ref called wade for traveling.
When the ref turned around to head back up court, wade wound up the ball in his arm and swung it like he was going to chuck it at the back of his head. At the last second, wade held on to the ball and put it down.
Rip Hamilton, the defensive weak sport of the pistons, was 1 minute away from shutting out two opposing SGs in the last week, Ricky Davis and Jamal Crawford.
Ricky was 0-8 and 3 TOs in 44 minutes.
Crawford was 1-6 with 3 TOs in 39 minutes, and his only basket came late in the 4th when Rip was out of the game.
Rip's the only starter without an all-NBA defensive team selection, but if he keeps this up he may get there.
I've always thought the Pistons backcourt was underrated defensively. I mean, you have the Wallaces obviously and Tayshaun but you dont hear lots about the backcourt. Chauncey got his due last year, which was good but Rip is a good defender too. Never tires, like on offense. You know ur team defense is good when Rip Hamilton is the weak spot.
Pistons are sleepwalking in their game tonight against the rockets
Yea, it sucks to play 2 no-defense teams in a row (Atl and NYK), then have to face a scrappy defensive team like the Rockets. The players get into that rhythm where they feel like they can get anything they want, then it throws your offense out of whack when those options aren't wide open. Plus T-Mac was absolutely lighting it up today. He had a whopping 4 points in the paint. He was just raining in 20-25 footers with a hand in his face like they were nothing.
And how about Rasheed. That guy is fearless. That was a CRAZY alley oop he threw to Ben in crunch time from about 30-33 feet away. Reminded me of earlier in the year when he lobbed it about 80 feet down the court to Ben for the dunk with about 10-15 seconds left when they were up 1.
