    I finally got to actually watch a game in this series (granted there have only been 2 LOL). The Shock really are the Pistons, but the Pistons of old with defense and late game execution mixed in with all the bad habits.

    I agree. They're the same mold as our beloved Pistons.

    Cmon you gals get it together for crying out loud. On the other hand, I'd love to see them clinch at the Palace. But the way they are playing in the first half reminds me of someone....hmmm...who?...reminds me of .....of....of....that switch again, god I don't want the switch to be Pistons/Shock DNA? God forbid.

    C'mon Shock. Go Shock! C'mon. Let's get another championship for Bill Laimbeer!

    Oh yeah. You gotta love the defense. So fun to watch competent defense.

    Yep, just like their palace-mates down four at the half as they cannot put away a team at home even if it is 50 miles away. Laims sitting Katie Smith nearly the entire 2nd qtr with her two fouls and they are still within striking distance. She will have to go the full second half in order to close this one out today.

    Nolan is 3-12 shooting with most of those from the outside and Braxton is 2/10 from mostly inside.

    Taj will have to move inside take some of those shots if Tara is going to continue to play like a lazy Sheed....

    The Shock went to the line one time in the first half so hopefully Bill showed them that stat and someone decides to penetrate instead of the outside jumpers...yep just like dem Pistons....:sssh:

    Dominating 4th quarter for the Shock who despite looking tentative and letting the refs control the foul discrepancy in the first three quarters, prevailed like a champion should.

    Now it's Six Championship Drive with 3 titles for each tenant. OK Pistons ...it's your move. For Mike Curry, he has to prove that he deserves the job more so than Bill Laimbeer who now has more titles in Detroit (5) than any member of the current Pistons or Red Wings.............except Mr D of course who has 6 with his Tampa Bay Lightning Cup.

    ...:sweep:

    Great Job. I mean this 'ship is unbelievable. Ford out, Nolan playing at maybe 75% and no Cheryl Ford for most of the season, then you lose Pierson to suspension and then injury. This was a great job. The Shock has something that the Pistons don't have, Katie Smith. Katie is one helluva competitor, her and the coaching staff willed this team to a title., UNBELIEVABLE!!!

    Don't forget the cup the Detroit Viper's won.

    Ok, that's the minor league.

    Bill Laimbeer has thoroughly impressed me this series. I never really got the hype from people wanting him to coach, but he was on point this series. When they were facing the zone you could hear him screaming swing the ball. The play-calls were great. And he kept his composure today when the Shock were getting semi-screwed by the refs and in turn his team kept his cool. He was great and most importantly the team responds and listens to him. He keeps them together. Now if he can work on figuring out how to stop runs, he'd be even better.

    Go Shock! Dominating 4th quarter. The last time the Shock won in 03, the Pistons went on to win the NBA title (we'll skip 07' for the purpose of making my point LOL)

    Sheed who? The Pistons could have beaten the Celtics if he didn't went and hugged Kevin Garnette at the beginning of each game like he was his girlfriend.

    The Pistons would have beaten the Celts if Chauncey Billups played anything like KS (or someone sat him down more in favor of Stuck)

    Way to go, Shock. Now that's how a REAL Detroit basketball team brings home the bacon.

    Deanna Nolan > Isiah Thomas (Isiah only won two)

    Nolan is cuter. Thomas should have stayed around in MoTown like Dumar, Laimbeer and Malhorn. Now look at him and his legacy in New York. What a waste. :hoops:
