Three things to watch
I know we have the station listed above, but I just wanted to remind everyone this game has been moved from ESPN. Jumping back to what Patrick wrote in August about this game:
I don’t understand how people can watch the Pacers on local TV, let alone national TV.
I guess they can’t, Patrick. I guess they can’t.
2. Terrico White?
Will Bynum will miss the game for family reasons, according to Vincent Goodwill of The Detroit News. I haven’t seen anything new on Tracy McGrady’s various ailments. If he can’t play, who will get point-guard minutes behind Rodney Stuckey? Could Terrico White finally make his NBA debut? I know it’s a longshot – I’m not even sure he’s healthy enough to play yet – but it might be possible.
3. Pistons seeking back-to-back wins over Indiana
In its last game, Detroit beat the Pacers.
The Pistons haven’t beaten the same team in consecutive games since topping the Pacers twice in December 2007. In consecutive games against the same opponent since then, Detroit split with the Bucks, lost twice to the Raptors and split with the Knicks.
What does this mean? Nothing, nothing at all.
- Ronald of Eugene of Eight Points, Nine seconds happened to go to The Palace for a rare game where Pistons fans got rowdy. This made him depressed about the Pacers. Ronald, you saw the exception to the rule. Perk up.
- Americans rule at free throws (and a ton of other great info on shots from the charity stripe).
