    Wasn't Mike Curry the coach when the Pistons last made the playoffs? Shouldn't we be honoring him?

    It will be in League Pass with Traitor Fred McLeod and Austin Carr handling the play-by play etc.. If both teams decide to rest the starters and not show their cards, you can just tune into Tigers and Wings early, take a nap and then wake up later to watch the wall to wall coverage of every Kobe shot miss bucket and the celebration of the Warriors getting their 73rd win......and then see all the memes of the crying Michael Jordan popping up on social media tonight and tomorrow.

    We should do the opposite strategy and play the game with our starters and with the intensity of a playoff game. Try to beat their scrubs by 50, run the season record up to 3-1, and start the process of getting in their heads. It pissed OKC off. Maybe that extra edge will take them out of their game a bit. Also, maybe our guys stay in a better rhythm and theirs happen to go cold.

    Needless to say, we also need to embrace physicality this round. Lebron is hoping to coast through the first round without going any extra games or expending extra energy. We need to use the 3 headed SF attack to make him exert effort. Don't double team him and allow him to get easy assists. Make him score against Morris, Stanley, and Harris with Dre as a threat to block him (or Baynes to just foul the crap out of him).

    Outside chance that Lue just gets out coached in his first real playoff test. SVG needs to make some surprise moves and get Lue to over adjust.


    None of this will happen, but as a severe underdog, you have to think of some angle.

    How can a meaningless game played by the benches not be on TV? It's positively un-American.

    Just read the Leecap. Baynes and Blake can't play defense. Coach lost this one. Would have won if we played Dinwiddie and Joel Anthony. Rodney White should have played more.

    Ratings would have been through the roof. Look at all the high-profile athletes.

    Tonight's starters:

    Blake
    Hilliard
    Stanley
    Tolliver
    Baynes

    Delladova
    McRae
    Jefferson
    Frye
    Thompson

    If this game isn't televised, did it actually happen? @pass99@pass99?

    Delladova is better than Blake we are in trouble.
    P.S. that's not that far out of the box @TaS@TaS

    No television for many of us. Here is what the Internets said about the closing minutes of the 4th quarter:

    With 2 minutes left:
    · Dinwiddie makes a layup 101-94
    · Mozgov scores scores 101-96
    · SJ misses a 15-footer (1:23 left)
    · McRae makes a 14-footer 101-98 (1:13 left)
    · Dinwiddie misses a 25-footer (50 seconds left)
    · McRae makes a 7-footer 101-100 (40 seconds left)
    · Dinwiddie fouled, split FTs 102-100 (35 seconds)
    · Cavs call timeout
    · SJ blocks McRae’s shot, Bullock rebound (28 seconds)
    · Dinwiddie fouled, splits FTs 103-100 (24 seconds)
    · McRae makes 3-pointer 103-103 (14 seconds)
    · Dinwiddie misses 13-footer (at the buzzer)

    We are headed for overtime....

    Jordan McRae has 35 points already. Who is Jordan McRae, you ask? I don't know.

    Jodie Meeks is up to 20 points in 26 minutes. It's curious that SVG waited until a meaningless game #82 to put him back on the floor.

    Joel 8 blocks. Excellent game from the Warden.

    Meeks was great, he plays so fast. Would have been nice to have him this season.
