- Rasheed Wallace returns to The Palace tonight, and I hope he gets a loud ovation. He wasn’t perfect here, but Chauncey Billups wasn’t either – and there was no doubt he’d be cheered.
- Jamie Samuelson and Rob Otto chime in on Wallace’s legacy.
- Richard Hamilton will play tonight, according to Chris Iott of MLive.com. Ben Gordon, Tayshaun Prince and Will Bynum are out. Chris Wilcox is questionable.
- The Pistons begin a six-game home stand tonight, and this is a great opportunity to make up ground in the playoff race.
- I won’t be around, but check out Daily Dime Live to chat during the game.
