Detroit sent the Bucks back to Milwaukee for an early vacation, blowing them out 122-93. The Pistons weren’t going back to Milwaukee for one more game, that was Guaransheed. Detroit came out strong in the first quarter scoring 39 points topped off by a Tayshaun Prince half court buzzer beater. Rip Hamilton scored 40 points setting a personal best for the playoffs, in just 3 quarters of play. Sheed added 22 points going 4-5 from beyond the arch, three of them in consecutive Pistons possessions in the third quarter to put the Pistons up 72-47.
They dominated from the start and never looked back. The Pistons now await the winner of the Cleveland – Wizards series, the Cavs leading 3-2 on a overtime buzzer beater by Lebron. Detroit now gets some much needed rest and will play no earlier than Sunday.
I have a couple of video gems from the game. The first video is Sheed making faces behind Reggie Miller while he does on court pregame commentary. Gotta Love SHEED! The second part on the video is Tayshaun’s little dance he did after he hits the half court shot.
The second video is Sheeds post game interview with Bill Laimbeer and George Blaha, check out what Chauncey does to Sheed while he’s doing the interview. Sheed got treated to some of his own medicine.
