The Detroit Pistons are heading downtown next season. Xavier Woods Jer

The Detroit Pistons are heading downtown next season. Xavier Woods Jersey . At the moment, theyre just headed downward.The Pistons have lost four straight, including the first two games of a four-game homestand. Theyll try to reverse their fortunes on Wednesday against another struggling team, the Miami Heat.Prior to the skid, Detroit won its first five games at its current home, The Palace of Auburn Hills, which opened in 1988. Owner Tom Gores announced on Tuesday that the team will move next season into the new downtown Detroit arena that will also house the NHLs Detroit Red Wings.First, the Pistons (6-9) need to rebound -- literally -- from their current doldrums. They have been outrebounded in 11 of their first 15 games despite the presence of center Andre Drummond, who led the league in that category last season.Boston and Houston grabbed key offensive rebounds in the late going of their last two defeats.It got better the last two games but its still not good, coach Stan Van Gundy said after his team fell to the Rockets 99-96 on Monday. Look, I know they dont want to hear it right now. Were all upset about the loss but, especially on the boards and even getting back on transition, were not competing as hard as we need to. In the half court, our defense is pretty good, but up and down the court we get lazy. And on the boards, were just not competing hard enough. Were going to have to toughen up to be able to accomplish what we want to accomplish.Forwards Marcus Morris and Tobias Harris combined for just four rebounds against Houston and Morris admits he need to do more.(Drummond) grabs all the rebounds, so its like the times where we think hes going to get it, we kind of pull out of there, he said. I consider myself a great rebounder, but hes also the best rebounder in the league, so at times we depend on him to get it because he normally does.Drummond will be matched up against another top young center in Hassan Whiteside. Miami (4-9) lost to lowly Philadelphia 101-94 on Monday despite a career-high 32 points from Whiteside.The Heat shot 38.6 percent from the field and 22.6 percent from 3-point range.Offensively we were struggling, Whiteside said to the media afterward. We got some good looks, shots that guys normally make. They didnt drop. It happens.Miami is in the midst of a four-game road swing. It has played the last four games without second-year forward Justise Winslow, who has a sore left wrist.Josh Richardson has been starting at small forward in his absence.Im definitely making progress, Winslow told the Florida Sun-Sentinel. I think the last couple of days have really helped, just getting some of the soreness out of there, but its still a little ways away. But its definitely getting better.The teams split their four meetings last season. Drummond averaged 12.5 points, 15.8 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in those games, while Whiteside countered with 14.8 points, 12.5 rebounds and 3.5 blocks. Taco Charlton Cowboys Jersey . The 43-year-old closer, in his 19th and final big league season, has said hed like to play the outfield. Yankees manager Joe Girardi says hes thinking about allowing Rivera to do it this weekend, when the Yankees finish their season with a three-game series at the Houston Astros. Jourdan Lewis Youth Jersey . The Vikings announced Thursday that Priefer will be one of seven holdovers from the previous staff, along with offensive line coach Jeff Davidson, wide receivers coach George Stewart and others. Norv Turner will mark his 30th year of coaching in the NFL as the offensive co-ordinator, as widely reported for weeks, and George Edwards will be the defensive co-ordinator. http://www.footballcowboysshop.us/cowbo … authentic/ . -- Anaheim Ducks defenceman Luca Sbisa will be out at least six weeks with a torn tendon in his right hand. Two former teammates who will lock horns in Saturday nights All-Stars game are both still pinching themselves ahead of the first season of the AFLs national womens league.Western Bulldogs midfielder Ellie Blackburn and Melbourne defender Melissa Hickey, both marquee signings, have this week been in camp with their respective squads gearing up for Saturdays clash at Whitten Oval.Blackburn, who had previously played for the Demons in exhibition games, said it would be a little strange playing against her old teammates, but was looking forward to the contest featuring some of the best female talent from around Australia.It will definitely be different playing for the Bulldogs instead of Melbourne, but for me its the start of something new and Im so excited to be playing for the Dogs, the 21-year-old told ESPN.It will be a chance to showcase womens footy at the highest level; there are so many talented footballers playing this weekend and we can all come together and play a really great standard of football.The nationally-televised contest will feature players who will likely be early selections in next months inaugural AFL womens draft.Teams will be 16-a-side, with six interchange players, while the ball is slightly smaller than the one used in previous exhibition contests. The changes have been made with the aim of reducing congestion and increasing scoring.Hickey said she was proud to again be running out for Melbourne, adding the club had fully committed to embracing the womens game.Im really lucky to be playing for the Dees ... Ive been around the club for three years now and I feel were part of the culture and theyve really welcomed us into the inner sanctum, she told ESPN.[Theres] been nothing but genuine support and buy-in from the whole club and the players, whenever we come to the club. Its really special to continue that journey with them. I was absolutely thrilled when it was announced I could join them [as a marquee player].Ive been part of the Demons since 2013, with the exhibition series, and played every game with them ... Saturday should be an even better standard [than previous games].Here in Victoria weve had 12 months of improvement and it [the standard] has increased here, and Im sure the same is happening in the other states ... its probably not ideal the amount of time we get to train together to develop understanding of how each other plays, the game sstyle and structure, but the 16-a-side [match] should be a very free-flowing and high-scoring game, so hopefully its a great spectacle and a great display of womens footy. Jourdan Lewis Womens Jersey. Hickey, 31, knows she is nearer to the end of her career than the start of it, but said she was so thankful the womens league was being introduced before she hung up her boots.Its amazing - I have to keep pinching myself, its a dream come true to be able to play in the league next year, she said. I think they initially started talking about 2020 as a date when it could start so I was concerned thatd be at the very end of my career; so when it was announced for next year, I was rapt.Im 31 but Im feeling the fittest Ive ever felt, so Im not too concerned about it; hopefully Ive got a few good years still left in me.Blackburn is at the other end of the spectrum, and could potentially forge a decade-long career at the highest level.Me coming into it at the age I am now is really beneficial and Im really fortunate that weve now got access to a womens league; Im only 21 and hopefully I can stick around for the next decade and play some really good footy, she said.While they will be on opposing sides come Saturday, the duo is on the same page when it comes to the importance of the leagues introduction.From a young age I used to joke around with my mates that I was going to be one of the first females to play AFL and to think back, it was literally a joke because we never thought it would happen.But when the AFL announced theyd set up a national womens league in 2017, it was overwhelming and it took my breath away, Blackburn said.Since then, theres been so much build-up and hype around it - its been amazing and the response has been truly wonderful. Theres so much excitement, all the girls are constantly talking about it, always using the hashtag #journeyto2017 - its always in our thoughts. Its something thats going to be great for the sport itself and for womens sport.As a young girl growing up, my idols were all male footballers and now, they [younger women] can look up and see someone they want to aspire to be, Hickey said. We get to go out to schools and a lot of the kids look up at you and say they play and love footy ... its very powerful to have female role models.
