Rodney Stuckey Drop 40 On Bulls

Rodney Stuckey, after playing just seven games in the starting line-up dropped 40 points on the Chicago Bulls Tuesday night. That's impressive but not surprising.

If you saw how he played last year coming off the bench as a Rookie, then you know what he's capable of doing as starter.

Rodney was just too much for the Bulls to handle. He just stayed aggressive and attacked them from the beginning to the end. The Bulls had no answers for him.

During the fourth quarter, when Rodney had 38 points, former Piston Lindsay Hunter asked him if he was going for 40. He answered by knocking down two free throws after being fouled moments later. That was awesome!

In first half Allen Iverson injured his groin. He didn't play in the second half.

The Pistons still have to make some adjustments. That 12-0 run by the Bulls didn't make any sense.

And The Pistons Sunday Curse Continues...

Why can't the Pistons win on Sunday? The Pistons lost to the Hawks Sunday afternoon making them 0-6 on Sunday. They are 14-4 Monday - Saturday.

What on earth are the Pistons doing on Saturday that makes them lose on Sunday? Partying til they drop?

Nah!!!... The Pistons played very hard against the Hawks, they just couldn't get the win. The Pistons are seriously going to have to find a way to win on Sunday because this is getting ridiculous.

Allen Iverson Fakes Wrap Around Pass To Mcdyess

Did y'all see Allen Iverson Fake that wrap around pass to Mcdyess?

That was sweet! If you missed it I have the video below...

With A New Starting Line-up The Piston's Beat The Wizards

Coach Curry's new starting line-up seems to be a working out just fine. The Pistons have now won three in a row with Rodney Stuckey running the point. Allen Iverson is the Allen Iverson that were use to seeing. Tayshaun Prince is doing well at Power-foward, Rip Hamilton is doing great at small foward, and Rasheed Wallace doesn't seem to have any complaints about the starting line-up going small. So all is good. Once the Pistons get into a rhythm, especially with Antonio Mcdyess back on board, this team is going to be great.

The Pistons beat the Wizards 88 - 74.

Don't tell me the Wizards only won 4 games this season. Yikes !!!

Rodney Stuckey In Starting Lineup

After the Pistons suffered their fifth Sunday loss of the season against the Nicks early Tuesday, coach Curry decided to tinker with the starting lineup. Rodney Stuckey will start along side, Allen Iverson, Rip Hamilton Tayshaun Prince and Rasheed Wallace.

Rodney Stuckey is a great player, but I'm afraid that the starting lineup will be too small. With that said, I can't wait to see Dyess back in a Pistons uniform. Although coach Curry made it known that Dyess will not start, I predict that once the Pistons get Dyess back, their defense and offense will become more steady and Kwame Brown will return to the starting lineup.

The Pistons Beat The Spurs

I feel really good about the Pistons win over the Spurs Tuesday night. It was a complete team effort. What I enjoyed about it the most was seeing Rasheed Wallace come to life after receiving a technical foul. 'Sheed heated up and almost single handedly erased the Spurs ten point lead. That was very fun to watch. The Spurs once led 60-50.

Tim Duncan was completely dominant in the first half, beating Rasheed 18-2. However the second half was a different story. Rasheed Wallace knocked down 17 points. Tim Duncan only scored one point in the fourth quarter.

Allen Iverson had a great game as well. I was happy to see A.I. playing like himself... getting steals, penetrating, breaking down defense and making layups. When A.I. isn't playing like himself its actually more of a mental thing. The games that he didn't play well in were most likely the games where he was more focused on fitting in than playing like himself.

Once Allen Iverson stop trying to fit in and just be himself, he'll find that he fit in very well. The A.I. that showed up Tuesday night is the A.I. that I'm used to seeing. One that is scrappy and very focused on getting the job done. That me feel really good.

The bench did another phenomenal job. I loved watching the Tony Parker and Arron Afflalo matchup. Arron's defense on Tony Parker was spectacular. He did an excellent job stopping Tony from penetrating and making layups at will. Love that shocked look Tony had on his face. I know he thought he was invincible.

The Pistons beat the Spurs 89-77.
