    FEBRUARY 22, 1987:     The Pistons concluded a 3-0 Silverdome homestand by beating the New York Knicks 122-110. Detroit posted a 36-22 scoring edge in the 1st-QTR and were comfortably ahead most of the way. The Knicks made a tardy charge by out-pointing the Pistons 31-21 in the final frame. Isiah Thomas had 26-P, Adrian Dantley 24 and Joe Dumars 23 for Detroit. Bill Laimbeer added 16-P and a game-high 11-RB, all off the defensive glass. Vinnie Johnson scored 13-P off the bench. New York had a one-two punch of Gerald Wilkins and Patrick Ewing with 32 & 29-P respectively. Gerald Henderson had 15-P and Rory Sparrow 12-P. Dumars of Detroit and Sparrow of NYK were co-game-high with 9-A each. The Knicks lost their second straight.  


    POW Award

    HENRIK ZETTERBERG
    Although not the player he used to be, the 36-year old Red Wings Capt. has been Detroit's best player this season, leading the club with 32 assists and 45 points by President's Day.  Over his last 10 games (through FEB 19TH) Zetterberg had four goals and eight assists.  Nobody got on the scoresheet when the Wings lost at home 2-0 to St. Louis on FEB 15TH.  In the FEB 18TH 3-2 win over NHL-leading Washington at The Joe, Zetterberg assisted on both Detroit regulation goals and then scored the deciding shootout tally.  Zetterberg also had a pair of helpers in the 5-2 FEB 19TH win at Pittsburgh.  Zetterberg is our Player-Of-the-Week for the period of February 13th--19th, 2017, Z's first POW Award this season and 18th overall.
