Detroit Pistons’ versatility on display in turnaround

If you’re looking for more coverage of last night’s game, there’s plenty in today’s Daily Dime.

I wrote about the Pistons’ flexibility (No. 2). An excerpt:

Dumars actively sought versatile players when remaking the team last summer, and that’s helped the Pistons (10-12) remain competitive while Hamilton and Tayshaun Prince have missed a combined 40 games this season.

It also led to some early hiccups for the Pistons, who lost seven straight earlier this year. The roster presents many possibilities, and it took time to find the right combinations.

But credit Pistons coach John Kuester for continuing to experiment. He inserted Chucky Atkins and Jason Maxiell to the starting lineup, and Detroit has won five-of-six and four straight.

Jeremy Wagner of Roundball Mining Company wrote about the Nuggets’ history of being a poor road team (No. 4), Chauncey Billups agreed (No. 5), and Charlie Villanueva matched a Jerry Stackhouse feat. (No. 9).

And you can even relive the in-game chat (No. 3).

Judging by the amount of attention that game got, the Pistons are back. Either that, or there were just three games last night.
