Chauncey Billups 28 Points And 14 Assists In Pistons Win Against Grizzlies

The Pistons came out attacking early against the Grizzlies Tuesday night, at one point shooting 67%. Wow! In fact they're averaging 100 points per game this season. The Pistons, executing flawlessly led by 15 points at the end of the third quarter. Chauncey Billups was excellent. He had a double-double; 28 Points and 14 assists. Rip Hamilton was excellent as well with 27 points. As a whole the team did an excellent job, even Rasheed Wallace who was suffering from flu-like symptoms, played some superb defense. Jason Maxiell who started in place of Rasheed, was a monster as usual. At one point he dunked on both Darko Milicic and Paul Gasol at the same time. They didn't have an answer for him... It was a good game... The only downside is that they took their foot off the pedal in the second half and allowed the Grizzlies to chop their lead down. For that reason, they were not able to sit and rest during the fourth quarter, which would have been good for them since they're playing the first of a back-to-back. At one point the Pistons led by 24 points. The Pistons 113, Grizzles 103. Their next opponent, the Rockets tonight at 8:00 on FSN and ESPN.
