You know the drill, Boston One – Pistons None. We need a team with fire tonight to get things done. We need a Mr. Big Shot, not that guy who played on Tuesday, we need a hot Rip Hamilton, we need a Tayshaun that dominates on the defensive end and isn’t afraid to take control, we need at least one demoralizing block and dunk from Jason Maxiell, we need a fervent McDyess and we NEED SHEED, not Mr. Rashid Abdul Wallace.
We have even a couple of those things and…..

POW!

Tip off is at 8:30 PM and will be Nationally televised on ESPN. If you can’t catch it on the tube you can always tune in to 1130 AM WDFN The Fan, or stream it live through your computer at NBA.com.

Oh, and I think we could do without Sheed in tights.
Leave ’em in the comments.

UPDATE: Thanks to Team Need4Sheed Member TaeTae83 for reminding us that ESPN360 is streaming the game live for those of you who don’t have cable.

    chris webber on espn radio said a couple things:

    – flip saunders is a great coach, and he gets unfairly criticized… in fact he thinks saunders is the key to this series, cuz of his offensive genius – he’ll find the pistons ways to score against the boston defense
    – he misses the game, and really wishes he was on the pistons right now
    – he thinks pistons will win the series despite the game 1 loss
    – and of course, he thinks barkley is hilarious

    this is it!!! its time!!!! and i have to say im getting into this superticious thing, hey whatever it takes to win! with that said, im not having wine during the game, instead ill have beer! so we we’ll definitely win, i never had a beer without winning! i expect or hope that chauncey we’ll continue his aggresiveness from where he left off in 4th quarter game 1. sheed, tay and rip, will surprise boston nation….by the way, if they think stuckey was aggresive in game one, they got it all wrong, they haven’t seen $#%! yet! by the way, did you guys know that celtics and their fans are so scared/worry if they lose game 2, why? for simple fact, they are going to the palace with a split win!!!!

    Yes, no Arroyo tights tonight, please.

    I have faith in this team, and I do believe they get it done tonight.

    Either way, all the pressure is on Boston and game 3. How much greater will that pressure be if they go home split?

    i understand that you love Dyess for his heart and drive, but i’m for not starting him.

    hes a stiff on defense, and looking back it was him leaving KG open shot after shot, not Sheed. Whenever KG posts him up Dice gets the fouls because of his lack of agility. hes easily the worst starting defender if for his shot knees alone.

    we have too many jumpshooters in the starting lineup. we need an energy guy to give us some sort of balance.

    Hope you get better soon, Jess.

    I’m gonna do my part in this whole “superstitious” thing by banning my dad from watching this game. For some reasons, every time he watches, the Pistons lose, so thinks that the Pistons are bad. So he will be no where within 500 cm radius of me and my TV tonight!

    Plus, I’ll even watch on my non-HD TV as well(we almost always win when I watch on this TV).

    I felt like we were gonna lose game 1 before it even started, but right now, i’m so effing pumped! All the signs are here, WE WILL WIN GAME 2!

    im SLIGHTLY disappointed in sheed’s game right now, going against garnett thought he’d play better… BUT honestly, if we’re winning im not complaining… and his presence out there definitely makes us better even when he’s not a dominating defensively

    Wow. That was an amazing 2nd quarter. Loving the intensity especially on the defensive end. Everybody’s staying in front of their man and contesting shots. It’s really nice to see that Mr. Big Shot is finally back from his injury. Hopefully they can maintain the intensity through the 3rd quarter.

    downtown…yeah michelle started laughing…….hilarious…i like what i saw from the pistons….if i have to sum up it in one word itll be, agressiveness. both ends of the floor….it would be nice to see pistons go for the kill in the 3rd quarter which is what they are known for. lets get this win before heading to the palace!!

    mannie, if sheed exploded like ripa and chaunce in the 1st half, it’ll be a massacre by now. but theres still an upside to it, he got more rest than kevin garnett, so thats a good thing going to the 2nd half.

    Reply
  39. Jason

    Great efforts tonight. Dyess and Rip are playing great, the Chauncey we all know and love is peeking his head into this game and Tay hasn’t been bad either. If Sheed can heat up and stay hot there should be no problems for Detroit. There intensity and focus looks to be at the highest its been all playoff’s, especially in that second quarter. And yes KG is a monster.

    Nat I hate to call you out on this but you misspelled Conference in your graphics on the home page.

    Keep up the intensity for another 24 minutes and this game is ours!! They can’t get too comfortable or let up in the least just because they have a little lead right now. You know the greenies are going to come out of the locker room on a mission – we have to make it clear that it’s mission impossible for them.

    LET’S GO PISTONS!!!! FINISH THIS THING RIGHT!

    But just a few quick notes:
    the choker RAY seems to gain his rhythm back; dat’s the biggest concern that i have now. But, i think
    we are absolutely able to handle this. Hopefully, Flip will make some adjustments as well like what he did at the end of the game – placing RIp back on him.
    Ratliff, watching him play it’s like having a heartattack every 3 seconds, sry guys, but dat’s seem the truth for me.

    we are absolutely able to handle this. Hopefully, Flip will make some adjustments as well like what he did at the end of the game – placing RIp back on him.
    Ratliff, watching him play it’s like having a heartattack every 3 seconds, sry guys, but dat’s seem the truth for me.
    ANYWAY< DETROIT Basketball. GOOD game, n let's pick this up!

    Mannie36,

    Somebody NEEDS to send them that message. What you said is so true and so on point. We need to wrap that up in an invelope and send it their way.

    “but pistons CANNOT in anyway exhale… they gotta play game 3 like they’re down 2-0, and forget boston hasnt won on the road.. the same way pistons beat boston for the first time at home in this playoffs, boston can just as easily come in and win on the road for the first time in the playoffs.. there’s always a first time for everything”

    also dont forget the fact that Allen seemed to have gotten his rythum back.

    i said before the game…if they think stuckey was looking pretty good in game one, they haven’t seen $#^!, the way he played on the road, in crunch time.. imagine how he would at HOME! i think its inevitable for him explode at home!

    mannie and jess, based on the past few years, its fair to think of the pistons like that but i think they’re on their guards…..thats the difference between winning game 2 in philly series after losing game one. they know they can’t treat boston like phyllis and their gonna take care of business at home.

    YEAHHHHHHH! I am so excited!

    Stick with the beer Ric.

    And I agree: Stuckey for president! I love how Van Gundy (I believe it was him) was so shocked about Stuckey being compared to Dwayne Wade and then by the end of the game he said he was on the bandwagon. Just imagine how good Rodney will be a few years from now.

    does anybody know how many technical fouls does sheed has for the playoffs, and how many til a player gets suspended in the playoffs? that might be a concern for suspension

    Something I always look at through the season, is the record over the past 7 games, any 7 games, it’s a good measure for the playoffs.

    Detroit is 5-2 over the last 7, Boston is 3-4, and would be out if the last 7 was the series.

    ECF or not, Boston is struggling.

    Paul Pierce sed after the game: ” Oh, this does not distrub our confidence at all, we’re extrememly confident on winning on the road” PSHHHHH wow they havent won on the road all post season and he’s confident?

    I agree Dyess has been the most consistent, he probably won’t win MVP if the Pistons win, but I sure think he should. That putback dunk was sick, I was waiting for a replay but didn’t see one. Local tv always has more replays.

    But where’s our bench, I think they’ll play better at home if Flip plays them.

    Give a lot of credit to Flip for adjustments he made from last game.

    And I agree with you guys, KG is a beast, I think Sheed will play better at home too and match him. Didn’t the anouncer say them two and McDyess were the same players back in the day?

    Hey noticed this on ESPN:

    “After a review, the NBA upgraded a foul Hamilton committed on Garnett early in the fourth quarter of Game 1 to a flagrant foul, penalty one on Thursday. Hamilton appeared to throw an elbow at Garnett’s head while being picked.”

    Maybe they should downgrade Sheed’s Tech tonight while they are at it.

    I was sooooo nervous when the Celtics started to make a run in the fourth but Stuck came through like a vet. Dyess played great again, Sheed got his 3’s, Rip is back, Tay’s solid and the most important..CHAUNCEY!! Im just glad we going back to Detroit with a chance to take the series lead. Maybe the fact that Chauncey and Sheed didn’t wear tights had something to do with this game. LETS GO!!!
    GO PISTONS!
