    Finally, someone that gets it. I was somewhat pissed after reading the articles and posts bad-mouthing Ben. I thought Ben did a GOOD job last night. Yea, he didn't score much and he missed FTs, but he was hella-good on defense. Without him, the Pistons would've lost by 10+. The Pistons don't look for Ben to be offensive, if so, they would run more plays for him. (Although I did love how they kept him offensively involved Sunday against the Cavs). However, bottom-line is this....if Ben does score, then those are bonus points.

    After watching the game again today (gotta luv NBATV) Ben indeed had a solid game... lots of deflections tip outs steals etc... all that while bench pressing 330LBS.

    The sagging on Ben can be avoided by bringing him a little further out.... when they put Ben out by the FT circle Shaq had to follow him to the key or get called for illegal D.

    Those of you that think these shots will fall eventually, keep dreaming. Man y'all just don't get playoff basketball, it's won in the paint, and on the boards. This late in the season, in games where teams are taking away your first option, the level of play is intense, the contact is hard and fierce, you have to fight for everything.........that's not a climate that is favorable for jumpshooters. Somebody better draw us a scheme that gets us some points in the paint or from the line QUICK. Somebody needs to not let Wade shoot from his absolute favorite spot on the dang floor. Somebody needs to decide to let Haslem prove he can beat us, note to Tay and Sheed a little defensive rotation would be nice. Note to the guards, how about not getting beat off the first step 15' from the basket, exposing your frontline, can we try and move our feet.

    A whole team does not go cold at the same time, but they can run out of the leg energy that allows you to get lift on your shot. It's hard to explain, but if you ever played this game then you know making shots is all about rhythm, no playoff team (Suns excluded) is gonna allow a game to flow to give you the rhythm needed to can J's in the flow of a game.
