Pistons push win streak to 10
10 was the big number for the Pistons last night. The Pistons won their 10th game in a row against the Wizards with their 106-93 win. Richard Hamilton also became the Detroit Pistons 10th leading scorer all time. Congrats.
The Pistons are really starting to look the best team in the east. All the Celtics fans out there better recognize real. Those two teams are going at it on Saturday in D-town so we’ll see what goes down.
T-Macless Rockets can’t stick in the Celtics
Despite not having Tracy McGrady in this game and being down 20 points in the first half, the Rockets managed to make a game of it. They took the lead in the fourth quarter but they were not able to stop the Celtics in the end, Kevin Garnett in particular.
Garnett completely took over in the fourth quarter, scoring 11 of his 26 in the last seven minutes, grabbing a big steal with two minutes to go, and blocking a shot with just seconds remaining to seal the victory. Thats how you want your superstar to play down the stretch.
The Celtics have matched the best start in are 30 games in NBA history at 27-3. Can they win 70?
Don’t make LeBron mad
Don’t make LeBron James mad and need to take over in the end of the game. Just ask the Pistons from last years playoffs. James didn’t play like he did in that series but he wasn’t half bad against the Hawks last night though.
At halftime he had a whopping 4 points. In the second half went on to score 32 points to end with 36 and led the Cavs to a 98-94 win. Happy 23rd birthday to LeBron. Better luck next time to the Hawks.
