[Detroit News] Hamilton searches for his rhythm He watched again as Michael Redd scored 40 points on him and others. He saw himself struggling to find his rhythm, struggling to find any kind of space on the offensive end. He saw himself losing his composure with Redd and the officials. The No. 32 in the Pistons uniform on that film was a player he didn't really recognize as himself. Chris McCosky's Game 4 preview "We gave up 124 points, man," Chauncey Billups said, with disgust. "That's a lot of points for a bad defensive team to give up. For us, and the pride we have, that's just not acceptable. We know that. I think you will see (tonight) a lot of things will be different." Pistons Notebook: "We have to go to" Rasheed "Usually when a play is working, we like to go back to it until teams find a way to stop it," coach Flip Saunders said. "But we got a couple of fast-break opportunities and butchered them. We made a concerted effort at one point to get Rip going and we sort of played out of character a little bit. "There's no question that when you have a guy like Sheed, and he has it going, you have to maximize that hot hand as long as he's got it going."

The Pistons, who allowed the Bucks to score more points on them than anyone since 2001, returned to their consistent plan - and practice schedule - after the uncharacteristic blow out. "Same like it always is," Chauncey Billups said. "That's why we're so good. We don't really change, we don't press, we stay poised. They had a good game, you've got to give them a lot of credit." [Racine Journal Times] GERY WOELFEL: Pistons' Hamilton should sit out Game 4 “I definitely think he did it on purpose,’’ Redd said. “It (Hamilton’s elbow) was way up, way up. The film showed it all.’’ Asked if Hamilton should be suspended, Redd said, “That’s up to the NBA. I just play basketball. I know Larry’s talking to them (NBA officials) today.’’ [Milwaukee Journal Sentinel] Doing the dishes The formula for success has been pretty much the same all season for the Milwaukee Bucks. When they have been at their best, they have passed the ball and gotten everyone involved. That tends to lead to better shots, which of course have a better chance of going in. Pistons' sparkplug tunes up for Game 4 Hamilton admitted that the injury has weighed on his mind a bit, and it has taken away from one of the greatest strengths of his game, his ability to move without the ball and work open off screens. "I ain't moving like I usually move," he said. "I looked at that when we watched tape today. It was like I was walking up the court sometimes. I'm not cutting the way I used to cut. I've got to get strength in my ankle; I got kneed in the thigh yesterday. I've got to figure out a way. I've got to be mentally tough to help my team win." [YAYsports!] Michael Redd knows how to shoot and such It's cute to go read how excited they are in Milwaukee, but let's face it, short of huge asteroids coming down and destroying Detroit, the Bucks aren't winning this series.
