What I Saw Last Night (Real Quick)

By Zoo
DJ Augustin is a PROBLEM ... he had OLD A$$ Dre Miller lookin real bad last night. Then again when I was givin dudes DJ and Rose dude had their thumbs up their butts ...

Stephan Curry had 39 points last night and through 5 games is averaging 35 POINTS and 8 assists ... he and B. Griffin who is averaging 26 and 19.8 through 4 games are trying to do something really crazy in terms of numbers ...

The Bulls beat the Jazz (w/o Boozer or Deron 101-100 as L. Hughes hit the game winner) D. Rose had 25 and 9 assists. He is FAR and away the ROY right now.

Manu is back and the Spurs managed to play .500 ball w/o him or T.P. as the LEGEND kept them afloat INCREASING his production with his two tmobiles out of action ... I am not gonna get crazy but the Spurs win titles in odd number years and in a little more than a month we will be bringing in 09' ... ya dig?

this is something interesting I read from Foxsports ... of course I am LIGHTYEARS ahead of n!$$@'s so I UNDERSTOOD ...

Pistons Losses Are Concerning

While the Celtics still look like the class of the East, the Pistons look like they have a ways to go in terms of getting to Boston's level. It's not just the fact that the Pistons lost at home to the T-Wolves 106-80 -- seemingly random losses occur all of the time in the NBA and sometimes are fluky deals.

However, with Allen Iverson on board and the Pistons' offensive philosophy morphed from a grind-it-out and post up team, into a dribble-drive team, the Pistons offense hasn't be sharp. Without the Pistons focusing their offense on Rip Hamilton curling around staggered baseline screens, Rip looks lost as to how he should score. And he's already mentioned how the Pistons aren't trusting each other right now.

Meanwhile Iverson hasn't been making plays, as he had only two assists compared to two turnovers, and he missed two of his three layups. And while getting burned by Rajon Rondo and Devin Harris can be excusable, it's got to be disconcerting when Randy Foye of all people goes off for 23 points on 9-of-12 shooting, with 14 assists and two steals to only two turnovers.

Detroit's defense is too strong in other areas for the Pistons to fall off the map, and their offense has plenty of time to find its way. But when the Celtics are clogging the middle on Iverson's dribble drives and he can't find a way to throw the ball back out, will the Pistons have a reliable second, third, fourth, and fifth offensive option? Because right now, Detroit's offense isn't close to a championship level.
