The Real Pistons Are Back

Led by their Captain Ben Wallace, The Pistons went back to playing Detroit Basketball Thursday night. Tayshaun Prince was the leading scorer and played terrific again with 24 points and 11 rebounds. Rip and Rasheed both had good games and seemed to be moving better than they have since each of their injuries. Chauncey is still struggling with his jump shot, he shot 5-13 for 18 points but made some critical free throws at the wire.

The Pistons were just too loose with the ball, with 16 turnovers, most of which were very uncharacteristic. If that continues they are in for a long difficult series. I am not going to get into the fact that the Heat scored 17 points in the last minute and something of the game. It shouldn’t have happened and I am not going to make myself mad when we pulled out the win. I usually don’t complain about the refs but some of the calls last night were simply ridiculous.

Ben was a monster, I can’t remember the last time I saw him play with that much fire and passion. He went 4-4 from the floor with 9 points, 12 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 steal. When Ben plays like that the whole team plays better, he’s like the match that starts the fire.

    That’s a scary picture. I spent much of the game marvelling at the abuse Wallace took. That shaq head but had to hurt.

    Shaq is a real man. He can take it.

    Ya it looked like the head butt hurt real bad, and the elbows that have almost knocked out Ben’s teeth.

    Ben is the Man. He is what started the pistons up. He came out firing. Hes the jersey I have

    It seemed that “…Miami just got away with …” was one of the most frequent phrases used by the announcers last night. At the same time, if a piece of someone’s sweat touched Wade, he was put on the line. Calls seemed pretty lopsided to me.

    As far as the head-butts, teeth-bashing, and so on is concerned – Ben can take it. That’s why he is there. He’s not exactly a flimsy guy. He may not have Shaq’s height or weight, but he obviously out-muscles him. Ben will be O.K.

    Like Chauncey says, “If it ain’t rough, it ain’t right”.
