    Was Hollinger born yesterday? How can he say that because of the play at the end of the 3rd Orlando didn't have a lead at the end of the 4th? He's going to lose whatever credibility he's had (if he did).

    Everything that happens in life has a bearing on destiny. I believe its called "the butterfly effect". Remember that game in the regular season where Chauncey got that huge bump on his head? Neurologically, that bump has slowed down his reaction time to a point where he is unable to stop the dribble penetration of quicker PGs. Jameer Nelson had a play in the second quarter where he blew by Chauncey and finished at the rim with a layup and an 'and-1'. Without "the bump" earlier in the season, Billups makes that play and prevents those three points. Pistons would have been up one at the end of the game anyway making TurkeyGlue's argument meaningless.

    That's kind of was my reaction to that as well.

    Here's more from the same:

    If only we had the power to give that game to the Magic. I feel so guilty that it is still considered a W.

    They had less than 20 turnovers, so they deserved a victory.

    media desperately tries to create something: since first game between bos and cle didn't offer much material ( you know what I'm talking, right?), media desperately tries to fill "vacuum".

    Let's say, pistons wins tonight and series would be 3-0. Do you think after media still blames for that this malfunctioning clock from 2nd game?:)

    Talk about flawed logic.

    If the Pistons knew how much time they had they would have shot earlier. Duh! Why is that so hard for Hollinger to figure out.

    Dee Brown and Ian Eagle agreed it was a non issue. Magic had 12 minutes to correct it and couldn't get it done. I said today on NBA radio, "ok, we give the Magic the 3 points---we still win 100-96"

    The league may institute a more sophisticated review for game clock malfunctions, but I'm wondering if they're going to consider the players on the floor as part of their new rule? Everyone knows they rely on game and shot clocks for last second on court decisions. I can almost guarantee Stuckey would have shot the ball instead of passing if he saw the clock at 1-2 seconds instead of the 4.8. If Stern & co change the rules, they should also institute some sort of do-over provision.

    That's right. Do over would be fair. But to take away three points would not be fair.

    Stuckey may have made that 2 pointer if the clock didn't stop.
