Hulk Hogan vs. The Ultimate Warrior. The Backstreet Boys vs. 'N Sync. George Washington vs. Abraham Lincoln. All historic battles between beloved American icons which could only be seen live on Fox Sports Detroit.
Tonight, another clash between pair of adored former allies will enter the annals of history when Gorgui Dieng and Peyton Siva share the court. The national champions will meet for the first time as opponents when the Pistons and Timberwolves square off in preseason action tonight at 7:30 in Detroit. The game, like the Abe/George showdown, can only be seen live via Fox Sports regional coverage.
Siva enters the evening second on the Pistons in assists at 5.2 per game. He's also chipping in 6.8 points per game. Dieng has only appeared in three preseason games (Minnesota is giving most of its court time to players trying to make the roster), but still ranks second on the team with seven blocked shots. He comes into tonight averaging 4.7 points and 5.0 rebounds.
I'm not cutting onions, it's not dusty in here, my allergies aren't flaring up; I'm crying.
