Chauncey’s 35 points helped The Pistons beat the red hot Suns 109 – 102 while clinching home court advantage throughout the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Suns led at the half 63-49, which was the most points given up by the Pistons at halftime all year. The Suns didn’t miss many shots in the first half but the Pistons clamped down on defense in the second. The Pistons trailed by as much as 17 in the first half and 16 in the third quarter before coming back and finally taking the lead 87-86 with nine minutes left in the fourth quarter and never looking back.

The Palace was

rocking when Chauncey started hitting three pointers like they were lay-ups in the last few minutes of the game. Happy Pistons fans once again broke into an “MVP” chant as he went to the line at the end of the game. Chauncey deserves to have his name mentioned again for MVP after going through a bit of a drought that had people forgetting what kind of player he is, I mean if Pepe La Pizzle is in the running Chauncey has to be.

Sheed almost didn’t make the game arriving only 20 minutes before tip-off due to a daylight savings time malfunction, almost breaking the streak of the same five starting for the same team in consecutive games in the NBA. But it looks like that record will stay at 73 because Rasheed got his 16th technical foul during the game after defending a hard foul that he and the rest of The Palace thought was flagrant on Ben Wallace. That means Rasheed will be suspended for Tuesdays game against the Hornets.

Tayshaun scored 23, Rip added 12 and the Wallace brothers each had a double double in the second straight come from behind win at home. Nobody pulls out a win like the Pistons.

    If it comes down to Chauncey and Nash in the MVP race, Chauncey definitely helped his cause in the head to head matchups.

    Rip teamed up well with both Ben and Prince and had some great assists, and Ben was the catalyst in the second half, both defensively and offensively (he was the energy). Prince had some awesome dunks and Sheed kept us in the game in the first half. Chauncey closed sealed the deal. I love our team!
