Breakdown

  • Point Guard - Tony seems to have a problem with point guards who, well, play point guard. Stuckey seems like a point guard.
  • Off Guard - I don't like it, but I have to take Iverson over Manu. Mostly because I expect Manu to be in San Antonio and the game is in Detroit.
  • Center - Rasheed will make Tim work. But Tim doesn't mind working.
  • Power Forward - This is pretty much a draw. If Matt gets shots, he'll have the advantage. But, if not, it's McDyess.
  • Small Forward - About the only advantage FinDog has is in weight. Prince might have a field day in the post.
  • Bench - Dick Hamilton is coming off the bench now for the Pistons. With no Manu, that has to give them an advantage.
  • Coach - I think even Michael Curry would have found a way to not get his team torched by Nate Robinson.
  • Intangibles - Detroit is playing terrible and should be very hungry. We are playing terrible and I'm not sure we are hungry. Especially since our hunger man, is in San Antonio.
  • Mojo - De-Troit Bas-Ket-Ball. Doesn't Motown have to be full of mojo?
  • Winner - I think we will eek out another ugly loss.

Keys To The Game

  • Defense - Have you seen it? If so, let Pop know where.
  • Third Scorer - We'll need to find a third scorer. Who do you think it will be?
  • Turnvovers - We've been a bit sloppy with the ball the past few games. Need to tighten that up.
