The reserves handled the 4th after the Clippers held Memphis to 11 3rd quarter points. LA made it rain, nailing 9 of their 10 three’s down the stretch. Without Marc Gasol, Zach Randolph went 4/13 and turned it over seven times. Blake Griffin recorded 14, 9, and 5 without playing the final frame. LA scored 41 in the first half and 60 in [...]
Milwaukee, WI Detroit 105-98 F. By beating Brandon Jennings’ old team the Milwaukee Bucks, the Pistons improved to 9-10 on the young season. Andre Drummond had another monster night on the glass with 19 boards. He has recorded 19, 18, and 19 rebounds in his last three games. He stayed out of foul trouble this time to score 24 points on [...]
It’s a huge win for this newly minted Piston team. “We had a lot of good performances from a lot of people,” Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks said. “Then we just held our composure because we knew that at some point they’d make a run. Brandon made that big 3 and we were able to hold on. When Brandon hit that big 3, i [...]
Legend It took overtime thanks to a bank-in three by Gervais Vasquez, but the Clippers closed out the Kings in Sacramento for their third win this season against them. Chris Paul sat out, resting his hamstring. Darren Collison did a steady job at point, and Jamal Crawford stole the show with 31 points and 11 assists. He is way more mature tha [...]
The Clips sustained an early NY lead (nine) to win the first quarter 29-27. They led the Knicks, who were held without a three (0/11), 49-45 at halftime. The Clips stayed consistent, adding another +2 quarter to lead six at the end of the third quarter. LA busted it open in the 4th, finishing the Knicks by double digits. Chris Paul left the g [...]
Sorry, other team: 61-30? MILWAUKEE – that’s who it was. Sorry, BKnight – 113, 94.
I didn’t watch much of this game. In fact, due to snarf circumstances, I had to leave my Clips trailing five after Blake Griffin’s technical around the three minute mark. When I saw the score late in the night, I was ecstatic. The Clips blew a large early lead but didn’t break. Right after I left, the Kings bricked a jumper [...]
Pistons hung tough, too, narrowly losing in Atlanta. It was our second game in as many nights, and we lost a little gas down the stretch. The Clips kept it close in Minnesota, and Chris Paul finished them off. Paul scored 16 of 18 Clipper points as the 4th quarter ticked off. He missed one shot, a free throw.
PALACE The Pistons kept it tight all night. It was knotted at 43 at halftime. Detroit took the lead up to 15 on an Andre Drummond slam late in the 3rd and kept the lead the rest of the way. Drummond has 42 rebounds and 42 points in the last three Pistons games. He’s actually leading the NBA in field goal percentage and averaging over te [...]
For all those who balled out on this Saturday night (Kevin Hart: what-up), you made a nice choice. The Clips led 29-26 after one, looking every bit the superior team. The Nets without Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Deron Williams, Brook Lopez, and Andrei Kirilenko seemed to have little fire power for anything but 3′s. Nonetheless, the Clip [...]
It was close for the first half, but the Pistons finished the third quarter up ten and never looked back. Andre Drummond had a monster night, hauling in 18 rebounds, eight offensive. Josh Smith scored 21 points, recorded eight boards, seven assists, five steals, and four blocks. 97-90 final.

DeAndre Jordan pulled down 18 boards, blocked three shots, and went 6-8 for 12 points in front of his hometown. J.J. Redick and Blake Griffin added 22 apiece, while Ch [...]
Detroit led two after one quarter, 22-20. The Thunder tried to pull away in the second, but the Pistons hung in there, trailing only four at the break. The Pistons led 74-69 with 3:40 to go in the 3rd until Kevin Durant scored six straight points. OKC went on a mini-run to end the quarter, leading 84-76 after a three-pointer at the buzzer. In [...]
This young Pistons team has me excited, maybe too excited. We took our opener to start 1-0, then nearly beat Memphis on the road. Some bad calls haven’t helped. Greg Monroe has proven that he is a legitimate big man but isn’t receiving the calls
137-118, Chris Paul led the way while I slept on the couch watching NBA TV in the background. 78 first half Clipper points and 17 CP3-O assists did that trick.
