Tim Brown was a good player. Played a long time. Hall of Famer though? I don't see it.
Pistons will escape, it appears. Up 109-96 with 1:20 left
KCP has tied career-high with 5 3s. (5 of 10).
Wild scrum. KCP picks it off the floor, steps into triple. Huge
Harden, another and-one. He's a tough one. For the Pistons, in the words of Sheed, there's a famous phrase
KCP with a late-clock triple, then Harden goes for it the old-fashioned way. Pistons hanging on by 7
The 21-point lead is down to 7. Harden beginning to cook. 18-8. Drummond's FT's a concern. 1-7
Gonna mess around and let this get away.
Harden barrels into Drummond. Both go down. No call. That's gotta be a foul on somebody, right? Drummond didn't have the angle
Josh went "Magic Smith" on the break, threw a pass into the fourth row...the Palace roars...and laughs. 86-67
That pass was funny.
Double-double update: Augustin 16p/12a, Drummond 11p/14r, Monroe 17p/9r.
Not sure why KCP is out the game, when Harden will go against Singler/Meeks
Just saw Cleveland State beat Green Bay. Every team in the Horizon League now has at least 2 losses. Oakland (10-12, 5-2 Horizon) in the mix
That's just great defense by Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to stay with the play in the open court.
Double-double watches: Augustin 12 points, 9 assists; Drummond 9 points, 10 assists; Monroe 15 points, 8 assists.
Pistons up 59-46 at halftime. KCP with 14 and great defense on Harden. Drummond with 9-9 boards. Monroe 9-7. Josh Smith is 2-8, 5 pts 4 rebs
Welcome back to Andre Drummond's energy.
Augustin and KCP playing a sound game after a TERRIBLE one in Philly. 18 pts, 11 assists for those two
KCP with 13 points, three assists and played great defense on Harden.
Looks like left knee for James Harden
He was holding his gead, now he's limping off gingerly on his knee. Going straight to the locker room
Harden up and walking gingerly to the locker room.
He just finally rolled over after not moving for quite some time.
James Harden appears to be holding his head, didn't see what happened yet
Remember Harden got that concussion from Artest a few years ago. He's on his back now but not up
Harden has not moved. He may have gotten Mayweathered.
Harden down. Is he holding his head?
KCP is doing a hell of a job defensively on Harden, who is getting nothing easily.
Harden is down. Hit his head, it looks like. Not getting up.
Make that 3-3 from 3 for KCP. Playing under control tonight. Confident. The shooters need a game
Chasedown block for KCP, gets it on the wing for a corner triple. Who needs athleticism and defense?
Drummond is alive with 8-5. Pistons lead 32-37 after 1. Shooting 58 percent against a good Rockets team. 12 assists, 14 FGs
James Harden will try to put Singler in a blender when they're matched up. My strategy if I were Singler: "Help!"
Smith takes wing 18-footer, crowd applauds. Change of pace from before
Palace fans boo Smith as he touches the ball and shoots, cheer loudly as the shot misses. They are relentless. Nice crowd tonight too
First Josh Smith jumper misses but serves as an assist...for a Singler layup. 30-24 Detroit.
When Monroe has the ball on the block vs Smith, the fans are engaged: "Take him Moose!" "Work him!"
Nice Palace crowd tonight, maybe as big as there has been this season.
This is a definite "Boo This Man" night
Y'all think Moose wants to post up Josh?
Pistons playing with some energy, more than they have since Jennings' injury. Especially Drummond. ACTIVE
Drummond blocks Smoove dunk. KCP for the layup on the other end. Timeout Houston, down 18-12.
Smith stuffed at the rim by Drummond.
First time he touches the ball, boos. 2nd time, boos. It's gonna be that kinda night
Steal, assist for Mr. Smoove.
Awaken the sleeping giant. I sense about 20/8/7/3/2 from Smooth.
The Boos are coming down for Josh Smith as he steps to the scorer's table. 8:31 left
Here come the boos for Josh Smith.
Who hits more jumpers tonight, Josh Smith or the Pistons' swingmen? Mind you they're shooting 9-33, 8-44 and 9-28 the last three games
Josh Smith was in good spirits talking to the media before the game. Said he has no hard feelings toward the Pistons or Van Gundy
