i wonder if we will see a big line up at some point tonight - biz on drummond, jefferson on monroe.
i'm not sure who the team has to match up with josh smith - tolliver might be the best bet.
i hope we really clog the paint with bodies and detroit gets lazy and starts chucking. kemba and mcbob (or jefferson?) need to attack jennings/monroe in the pick and roll relentlessly, they are one of the worst defensive pairs in the league.
This is really going to be a good one, and a tough game to win. Detroit had a slow start, but they're starting to get it together, and even with Smith under-performing by his standards, a frontcourt of Smith, Drummond, and Monroe is pretty gnarly. Brandon Jennings is no slouch either. I had Detroit listed as one of the dark horses to make a deep playoff run this season. All hands on deck to win this one. We're going to need to be able to shoot the ball at least mildly effectively to have a chance, because the paint is going to be well-clogged.

It'd be nice to see the team close out December strong. There's winnable games against Detroit, Utah (twice!), and Milwaukee still left, and if they can win the next three (Detriot-Utah-Milwaukee) the 12/28 game against Atlanta could wind up being for third in the East. The only other game on the slate is OKC, but.......I mean......can't win 'em all, I suppose. Detroit's looking like they may have put it together and become a winning squad, though, so you definitely can't look past tonight.

It looked real bad...according to his facial expressions at least. Feel bad for the guy.
