    1st round game #1

    Orlando Sat April 21st 7pm


    tv: ESPN, not sure about the local coverage.

    Pistons and magic have played each other twice in the post-season. Both were in the 1st round. Magic swept the Pistons in the 1995 series 3-0 and the Pistons beat the Magic 4-3 in 2003.

    Each series was full of drama. Back in 1995 Pistons head coach Doug Collins accused the Magic of running up the scores and the most recent 2003 series saw the Pistons comming back from a 1-3 deficit. This was amoungst a controversial statement by Magic star T.McGrady when he called the series over after game 4.

    This years matchup is not expected to go past 5 games according to most experts. Many are picking the Pistons to sweep.

    Don't count Orlando out. Sure, if Hill refuses to adjust in this series, the Pistons should win in 4. But on the other hand, if Hill does change his stripes and do some coaching, Orlando does have a lot of talent to work with. So far, I have seen no sign of Hill being a winner, so I am not too worried.

    Silly me. I thought the first round was a best of 5. I must be thinking of baseball or something.

    Does Hill have any teamates??

    If the Magic , or should I say when the Magic lose this series it can`t be pinned on Grant Hill.

    I'm lookin for a sweep. Big time. We outta be pissed they screwed us out of a lottery pick and put the serious BROOM to em. Swarm D-Ho from jumpstreet, keep somebody in Grant's pocket, boxout, play physical and hit our own dam shots; should be a SWEEP!

    Just thinkin bout it makes me hungry. Orlando represents good eatin! Seafood (NOT) "lakefood." I'm thinkin some spiced up baked Grouper sprinkled with Coconut and smothered with cooked pineapple rings sets the stage. Especially over a bed of steamed spicy brown rice. Couple of biscuits to sop up the gravey and we are ON!

    Yeah...I'm lookin for a sweep. Rubbin my belly right now just thinkin bout it.

    GO PISTONS!

    Amir Johnson is staying with the big club, due to rules barring a player not on the playoff roster from returning to the D-League after the playoffs start. Someone posted the link on the detnew.com board in case anyone wants to read the article.

    It will be interesting to see, now that the Pistons have been forced to do the right thing in keeping Amir here, if he will be dressed for this game ahead of Mohammed.

    Does anyone here think Nazr would be enough to get Sioux Falls the Championship if we were allowed to send him down?

    Oh yes he would dominate. Seriously - a seasoned NBA player, even an average one, would rule down there.
