Just checked ESPN to get the scoop on the pistons game, and uh... it looks like Villanueva came to play. He just dropped 30 points on Charlotte with two made threes. This guy is good. Real glad we picked him up this season. Also, Ben Gordon knocked down 22 points and Stuckey had 16. The Pistons won 98 to 75 and are now 4-4 on the season. I definitely like this Pistons team that Joe Dumars has put together. Gordon has been amazing shooting the ball, Villanueva has given us a big man that can score some points, Ben Wallace is locking down the post spot on defense, Stuckey has stepped up along with Bynum, and we don't even have Hamilton or Prince playing. I hear that Prince is out for a while with a possible surgery, but I haven't really heard anything about Hamilton. The recap on ESPN doesn't really get into the injuries. I think this Pistons team is pretty dang good with Hamilton and Prince playing. Good bench players along with solid starters. I just think this team needs a little time to gel and then they could be a tough playoff team.
