Pistons streak goes to 9

NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.

Chauncey prefers to shoot not dunk

The Detroit Pistons won their ninth game in a row and did it in impressive fashion destroying the Milwaukee Bucks 114 to 69.

The Pistons suddenly aren’t content with simply beating teams; they are humiliating them. Here what was reported in the papers.

They made the Milwaukee Bucks look like a D-League team Monday, ending 2007 with a 114-69 romp before the 200th straight sellout crowd at The Palace.

“You get into a certain part of the season where things are getting comfortable for you and you just want to continue to ride that wave,” Tayshaun Prince said. “That’s what’s going on right now.” source

The Pistons ended up December 15 - 2. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Detroit!

As stated before, it is the young guys that are helping Detroit seem like a rejuvenated team.

Also reminiscent of that championship run is the way the Pistons’ bench is contributing. Jarvis Hayes contributed 14 points off the bench. He, Jason Maxiell, Rodney Stuckey and Arron Afflalo helped the Pistons spread the lead in the second quarter and led the Pistons to a 28-12 advantage in the fourth.

“These are young guys and when they get into the game they are really taking advantage of their minutes,” Billups said. “They are so aggressive and so hungry when they get their chance. I’ve been calling them the Zoo Crew because they are like some caged animals when they get out there. I love watching them play.”

Chauncey dunks

In a wild move in the game, Chauncey Billups took a long pass from McDyess and dunked the ball. Chauncey rarely ever dunks. It seems Afflalo had been bragging about his vertical leap and Chauncey had to show him he could dunk. So far Afflalo has no dunks in the NBA.

Rip Hamilton could not resist commenting on the dunk.

“That dunk was so old-school,” said a non-impressed Hamilton. “He should have gotten a technical foul for hanging on the rim. But he said to me, ‘I had to let all the cameras get their snapshots in so everybody can see I can still dunk.’ “

The Pistons are winning and having fun. What could be better!

NBA Basketball Fan Question Will Billups dunk again this season?

As always, any NBA Basketball related comments are welcome.
