Pistons Vs. Spurs = SHEEDtastic

by | Jan 12, 2006 | 6 comments

Round two officially went to the Detroit Pistons crushing the Spurs 83-68. Everything came together for the Pistons throughout the game, they shot well, played great ”D”and out rebounded the Spurs by 24. Don’t get me wrong the Spurs had their moments but The Pistons clearly dominated throughout.

The Spurs outscored Detroit in the paint by ten points which isn’t very surprising when you have a guard like Tony Parker on your team who drives the lane almost every time he touches the ball. When Detroit played the Spurs back on Christmas Day a lot of people were saying we wouldn’t have won if Manu was playing. Well he was playing today and they still could not pull off a win over The Pistons. He was 4-13 from the floor which is a grimy 31%.

With Carlos Arroyo being suspended we activated Alex Acker, although he did not play. Tay played point and Flip just rotated the whole lineup. When Tayshaun came out Maurice would come in, and when Chauncey came out Tayshaun went in for him. Rip also had a great game breaking away from Bowen to put up 20 points.

Rasheed Wallace, the name says it all. Sheed was awesome, opening up the game 3-3 with the Pistons first six points. Sheed just played good all around ball tonight leading all scorer’s, shooting a phenomenal 60% from the field for 27 points, ten boards, four assists, one blocked shot, with only two turnovers in 43 minutes. To me the stats say it all, if we can keep Rasheed going like that all season The Pistons will have the home court advantage in the playoffs for sure.

Bottom line, the game was simply …..

    once again rasheed showed why he is a great basketball player and unstopable in the post. He showed why he deserves to be in the nba all star game this year. KEEP VOTTING FOR HIM THIS YEAR SO WE CAN SEE SHEED IN THE ALL STAR GAME

    When Sheed gets going like he did early, the Pistons are unbeatable. Not only shooting, but defensively, he was on fire last night.. Kinda disappeared early in the fourth, but he really led the team last night
