PREVIOUSLY, THE DETROIT PISTONS...without three starters (Tayshaun Prince, Rip Hamilton, and Ben Gordon*) lost 104-96 to the Clippers on Friday night. It was Detroit's seventh straight loss overall and their third straight loss at home. A small fire spared Pistons fans from seeing it in its entirety.
*Sort of three starters. Gordon wasn't meant to be a starter but had started 14 games since Hamilton got hurt.
- Another vote for bringing Marvin Williams off the bench.
- How to build an efficient offense, or, the benefits of abstaining from long twos.
- Something to keep in mind when next perusing a boxscore.
