Matt Watson of Detroit Bad Boys
has the take on last night's game:
The first loss is in the books. It was bound to happen sooner or later, and that it occurred against the Bulls, a division rival looking to atone for an 0-4 start as well last year’s showing in the playoffs, wasn’t a big surprise. In fact, even though the Pistons had a chance to win late, it felt like they were on the verge of stealing the game, not winning it.
They trailed for much of the game, and seemingly every run to make the game close was followed by a lull in which Chicago jumped back ahead. Were it not for Rasheed Wallace — his 36 points were the most ever as a Piston — Detroit never would have been in this.
