    You DO realize they are on OUR team, right. I guess that is one way of approaching it? How sad is that?

    Sheed is the key. He must not continue to underperform. His outside-inside threat has stagnated because he can't hit a 3 all of a sudden. If this continues, he will most likely self-destruct like he did against Cleveland in Game 6 last season. Man, I feel like a Debbie Downer. :MusicBigGrin:

    I guess I'm more hung-up on the "Flip not coaching" part of the deal.

    Yeah, but how long can one hope against reality?

    It is what it is. They should play, but they probably won't. Flip is tightening up his rotation, and he will play it increasingly tight as the series goes on.

    I was trying to provide food for all trains of thought. :)

    Rhetorical question, right?

    After all, I know some Cubs fans...

    I hope also for a steal in game 5. However, I still have the same views for this game that I had for the first one, I believe we're gonna win... but just if the players want it as bad as the Celtics.

    If tonight the team is a representation of Rasheed's current skills and will, then we're doomed.

    No. This is the only sports forum or message board I really participate on.

    I post at the DetNews a couple times a year, sometimes the Pistons.com forum but not for ages, and I used to post frequently at DBB, but haven't in awhile.

    I would rather the Pistons win. The Wings window will be open for a few more years yet.

    No way! the Spurs played the homecourt strategy and stole Game 7 against N.O. We can do that against these chumps. We only need to win one game in Boston to make this a 6 or 7 game series.

    I feel like we actually need to win 2 road games to advance. Assuming that we will hold home court 3 times in a row against Bos will make an ass out of u and Sheed.

    Sounds good to me!

    Hey, I knew a lady from the Philippines, she made fried plantain bananas with a dark syrup. Do you know what that dish is called?

    We will get swept in the 1st round unless Amir and Afflalo play.

    I think Avery johnson is very intellingent in wainting for the playoff season to be over before choosing whee he wants to coach. I would definately wait to see the outcome of the conference finals. You never know...Avery my be in our locker room next year.

    The Pistons will indeed win the game tonight and build on that to win the series as will the Spurs.

    I just stopped by Costco on my way home from work and picked up a case of tissues. Looks like we will need it with all the crying going on around here.

    The biggest reason that the Pistons lost game 1 of the ECF was Boston. The Celtics played very, very well. 26 assists on 36 made baskets. Take the excellent play of Boston, combine it with the horrible shooting night for the Pistons (36%?) and you got a recipe for game 2. If the Pistons can pick up their shooting a little (Sheed, you gotta MAKE those 3's, man!) they can beat Boston tonight.

    I'm not going to start my crying until the Pistons are down 3-0, or the Celtics have won 4. Until then,

    GO PISTONS!
