Tomorrow night isn’t going to get easier for us unfortunately. A big and active front court of Jefferson, Millsap and Kirilenko is going to be an issue for us. Throw in one of the league’s elite PG’s and it’s a recipe for disaster for Toronto. We’ll be counting on Reggie once again to control the… Read more »

Once you get done banging your head against the wall and cursing out everyone who screwed up in that fourth quarter, don’t forget that the team did play quite well for a large part of the game. It sucks balls to lose a game like that, you know, being up 17 and giving it back inch by inch until you’re in a tight game in one of the loudest arenas in the league.
I was at this game in Auburn Hills tonight. Couple things: Sat 5 rows off the floor next to Andre Drummond's mom and Grandma who were across the aisle from us, so the family section. Paid $120 the day tix went on sale. My point is, that's is a way cheaper way to see the Raps if you can make the drive. Second point, the palace was absolutely FULL of Northern Invaders. We drowned out any and every detroit chant, defence chant, Drummond's mom who was quite vocal. And the Detroit fans, by the end were literally like "what the fuck is going on?" Where did all this people come from. It was so amazing to take over another team's building. As though we were trying to outdo the fans who rocked the Cleveland game. And to top it all off fuckin George Clinton was the halftime show! The raps players were loving it. And when the fight nearly broke out (malice at the palace 2) it would have been complete pandemonium, cause I swear it was 50/50 ratio of Raps to Pistons fans. The Johnson dunk was over Drummond and I want the poster. Nice work to any of the Republic who were at the game. Best Raps game I've ever gone to.
