As me and Mikhail said in chat when it was in the low 30's, we need points to win and we need to finish above 90 to guarantee it. We got 14 in the last 4 mins to hit 50 and most thought we had it...but wtf, the C's open the 3rd on a 13-4 run. But alas we keep our composure and respond with a 12-2 run to temporary control of the game and lead by 9 at the end of 3. Yep they came back within 2 with some crazy play by Theo on both ends, but the starters finally stepped up vs the Celtics for the first time this year (the last 4 games). Rodney STUDDkey was huge in the 4th as he and Hunter were the only zoocrews to scored. Billups returned to glory...we hope We got out boarded 39-31, but the rest of the stats were almost even...both teams hit 35 fgs, both team hit 5 three balls, but the difference was at the free throw line where we got them at the line by 6. Assists were about even, we had 27 points in the paint to their 26. Tonights meaningless stats= Pistons were 34-1 during the regular season when scoring 100 pts or more and now 4-0 in the playoffs. Now nine straight game 2 wins in the playoffs. First team to beat Boston at home and first score to over 100 pts on their # 1 defense Six Pistons in double figures Afflolo got in and played 16 seconds which secured the victory.
