    Default Pistons and Billups got a call tonight to make up for last week

    I am sure Kstat will chime in, but the Pistons got jobbed last week at Minnesota.

    But tonight with less than a second to go, Billups takes a shot and they call a very questionable foul, in that situation I think that is called maybe 5% of the time. The score was tied by the way.

    Refs giveith and the refs takeith away.

    In all honestly, the call in Minnesota was worse than the call tonight, but tonight's call was a bad call, I happened to switch over from the Pacers game at the right moment to catch it.

    Pistons had a 11point lead with about 2 minutes to go and the Grizzlies scored 11 straight to tie it.

    Pistons won by the way.

    The Minnesota call WAS worse. We probably would have taken the Griz in OT had the call NOT been made.....

    that said, it was an awful call. No 2 ways about it.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    See that is why you are so respected around here, there are a lot of fans that would not be able to admit that.

    What happeneded in the last couple minutes of the game that allowed the Grizzlies to make up tie it up after trailing by 11 with a couple of minutes left

    Is there any team that pulls out more close wins than Detroit?

    Pistons win a ton of close games because they have had a great coach now for three straight years. They have very mentally strong players, and guys who can hit clutch shots.

    We basically started messing around, stopped playing, and the Griz took it to us. We got hacked a few times, but we wrent being aggressive, so I really cant complain about the lack of calls.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.
