Bobcats Goldthwait

The Pistons play the Charlotte Bobcats at the Palace tonight (Wednesday). They will again be without Rip Hamilton (ankle) and Teyshaun Prince (back). This is close to being a must-win game. Obviously, the 8th game of the season really can’t be considered one that you must win, but it is still important. The Bobcats are not an impressive team, and a legitimate playoff contender should beat them. Also, the Pistons are 3-4 on the season, and there is a big difference between 3-5 and 4-4.

Rodney Fernando Keys to the Game

  • Big Ben needs to keep it going. 16 boards and 3 blocks in his last outing (the Feds are still searching for the fountain of youth he’s been bathing in.)
  • Charlie V has stepped it up, and we need him to sustain it. 16 points and 5 boards will hopefully become an average game for CV31.
  • Jerebko/Daye - They are seeing the bulk of Prince's minutes. So far, so good.
  • Stuckey needs to improve. He's shooting a dismal 36.5% from the field and only dishing out 3.7 assists per game. Not good enough. He needs to get his shooting percentage up to the mid 40s and the assists up to about 6...
  • Need solid minutes from Kwame Brown (who has played Ok this year).

Mekka lekka hi mekka hiney ho

Pistons 92, Bobcats 84. (Gordon for 30???)
