Dallas 95-90 Detroit
Ok, Detroit lost for the first time after the three games. But let's just look at the positive side of thhings: The Pistons played the West's third best team without Rip and Tay AND Ben Gordon having an off off night. I mean, he couldn't buy a single bucket. He was 1-16 from the field. Have you ever tried to be one of 1-16 from the field??? It's almost impossible to do! I think the coaching staff was discussing if Ben should stay on the bench to keep the drinks cool! Still, I like that Coach Kuester stayed with Ben and wants him to keep taking last second Shots. But honestly, it can't get any worse than that for the Pistons so if this was an off night, I'm looking forward to the rest of the season! Great work so far Coach K!
Will Bynum and Rodney Stuckey combined for 55 points on 23-36 shooting, Bynum led the the in +/- with +7! You know, Bynum should be in serious conversation for the Sixth Man and Most Improved Player Award. And just for fun the NBA should have an award called "The Most Improbable Way to Become an NBA Player Award". Look at this kid, undrafted and listed at a charming 5-11! Who would've thought he'd turn out to be Bynumite???
