If Bosh can have a statement game against Rasheed instead of being intimidated by him and we can get a modicum of decent help D and rebounding, we may just be able to be competitive in this one.

Because he hasn't seen the floor in ages. Other than sitting courtside with his team.

I still dont know why we didnt do the Dixon for herrmann deal. I still like brezec but Hermann would have being a better deal.

If that was a deal on the table i agree with you... Hermann is a perfect fit for our team... hustle, rebounding, shooting, smart. It's a shame he's not seeing the court... he is a Scola-esque guy that's rotting from depth disease.

The best defense we can offer won't even match 60% of Detroit, so watch and learn.

Ballsy prediction fho!

I'm looking forward to the Bosh vs. Rashweed match-up. Wallace usually has his way with Chris, so it'll be interesting to see if Bosh has learned anything over the last while on how to approach Rasheed.

probably "the other" ... they're on a 2-game losing streak, they play phoenix tonight, so they might be on a 3 game losing streak (even though they had Phoenix's number the past 2 seasons). Do you honestly expect the Pistons to lose 4 games in a row?

After watching Suns vs Pistons, which was a great game, the Raps will have to have a near perfect game against the Pistons.

If we can keep Detroit of the foul line and settle for jump shots, while we attack the rim and get to the foul line then we might have a chance. As always, defense is key.

Hopefully, Hamilton takes another day of recovery.

or the pistons could relax a bit - they are prone to do that against weak teams (and surely we are no longer regarded as a tough team these days).
