Great "Everyday" Nights
Posted By: TurboPistons
No ratings for this submission
I guess we sometimes take it for granted how good we have it in Detroit when it comes to basketball? So, as often as I can, I try not to. We have it pretty good and there are many extraordinary, ordinary nights. November 14the, 2008 was one of those nights.

Chauncey, who will always be one of us, rolled into Boston with "his" Denver Nuggets and beat pulled off the come-back to beat The Celtics.

And, our Detroit Pistons rolled into Los Angeles, after playing Golden State the night before, and flat-out beat up on the Lakers; breaking their undefeated opening to the season. After having a less than perfect start (mentally) since the trade for Allen Iverson (Rip and Sheed shooting 25 percent...?), this really was the game the Pistons needed to feel their potential and the game the fans needed to have hope that trading away Mr. Big Shot (maybe) wasn't the worst thing we could have done.

Oh, and the Wings won their fourth in a row, including a win over Tampa Bay that got Barry Melrose fired. Sports in Motown brings memories and excitement 365 days a year... well, except for some football Sundays when the Wings and Pistons aren't playing.

Back in the Day, the Ben Days. We may have some days ahead of us still???
