you don't win the number of games and titles that the spurs have won over the past decade without also getting their fair share of breaks, bad calls gone their way and "lucky" clutch plays. you're sounding like a colts fan.

P.S. And the Cavs tied the Pistons 2-2.
the pistons seem to lack the mental toughness that larry brown gave them. there's no way they should let cleveland be in this series... after lebron they have no one, esp. with larry hughes not playing.

Please...

Bad calls are part of the game when they don't decide the final score.

Thank God for the World Cup. I'll make sure to wake you up after that 5-hour scoreless baseball game.

actually scoreless baseball games usually go quicker, because less batters come to the plate. but thanks anyway.

and now you're really sounding like a colts fan... blaming the refs for the final outcome.

Uh, technically speaking, wouldn't a scoreless (as opposed to a 1-0) baseball game go on forever? At least a scoreless soccer match would go to penalty kicks (not that that's a good thing).

Anyway, back to basketball. Yes, the Pistons looked awful offensively the last two games, but this was after they looked like an offensive machine the first two. Still a little early for Pistons fans to panic.

Richard Hamilton's scored 30 of the Pistons' 72 points, so it's hard to find fault with him. But on that last possession, he could have pulled up for the 10-footer or taken the ball strong to the hoop and probably drawn a foul. Instead, he went up about halfway, drew a little bit of contact, didn't get a call, and missed. Ballgame.

it was a good no call on the hamilton play... yea, he drew contact, and in the first quarter it may have been a foul... but with the game on the line ya need to draw more contact than that.

i wanna know what happened to 'sheed... he makes a gaurantee of victory and then doesn't even show it... he wasn't even on the court at the end of the game, when some fugazi chauncy billups was on the court instead.

Rashweed sprained his ankle. I think he'll be fine for Game 5, but karma bit him in the ass this time after sparing him the previous four times he guaranteed a win.

The whole guaranteeing a win thing is a bit overrated in my book. Why go ahead and make that proclamation for a game 4? If you're down 3-0, then I can maybe understand it, but not to go up 3-1. Seriously, who does that?

Mark Messier's guarantee in '94 against the Devils was a great one because his team was down 3-2, he was team captain and what not but save it for special occasions like that.

If you've used 3 guarantee's, chances are pretty good that your lucks going to be running out. Just my two cents.

I guarantee that every time Rasheed looks in the mirror and sees that spot of splooge in his hair he says "damn I got to get that thing dyed or something".

so the Heat are onto the next round.

Maybe the Pistons will wake up when that series rolls around, because there's no way they'll lose to the Cavs...right?

you wouldn't think... but then again, you wouldn't think the series would be tied right now... and you didn't think the pistons would have beaten the lakers for the title a 2 years ago... so who knows...

but i'd fully expect the pistons to advance to the conference finals... where they'll have to face a very dangerous miami team, who was built for the playoffs, and has a far superior head coach.

Argh.

The Pistons need to stop sucking down the stretch. They had two big missed free throws and some lousy offensive possessions down the stretch. But what was really bad was a horrible blown defensive assignment on the Cavs' last bucket -- Drew Gooden cut down the *middle of the lane*, nobody picked him up, Lebron somehow missed him, but Gooden just sat on the low block for 2 seconds while nobody picked him up. Eventually Lebron passed him the ball for a layup.

wow... that's all i have to say. wow.

the pistons are supposed to be such a great team, yet they now find themselves down 3-2 to a one man team who's been plaing without theire #2 scoring option throughout the playoffs... pathetic can not begin to describe the effort put forth by the detroit pistons. i still have to believe that they will win the series... but shit... that belief is getting very thin..
