Jeez lin, next time you have a birthday just ask for a Championship will you? Saw the game, and well: 1) Loved the first and mayb 3/4 of the 2nd quarter and the endgame. Great shooting in the first, guys going for rebounds, aggressive, hustling to loose balls, playing great D. Same for 3/4 of the 2nd quarter but let up near the half allowing Seattle to come back with our subs in. Can you say MELTDOWN? 3rd and 3/4 of the fourth. Aaaaaggghh. Constricting chest pain..... Thank you for Rip's ball movement and jumper. Instant offense. I know, I know, another jumpshot but hey, Rip's midrange J, I'd take over Kevin Durant's any day. 2) Billups and Tay deferred too much and ended up setting the tone for their games for the night. Quiet. And there goes Billups again barrelling into the lane without a plan, and was called for a charge on Thomas. I've never really liked that play.... 3) Rip = offense. Had some difficulty guarding Wilkins IMO. Got posted on often, but abuses him on the other side as well. 4) Sheed and Dice. Great game for both with good production and rebounds. 5) AJ. Looked active and well, new. But considering the time he's getting I'd say he looked really good. Not trying to force the game. Loved that rebound over Green, if I'm not mistaken. And the hustle. Nice work kid. 6) Nazr. You gotta give it to the guy. He is trying really hard. He's doing ok IMO, serviceable as a backup big man. We will need a center come playoff time. 7) JMax. Hang in there Brahma. The game will come to you. Take a page out of AJ's book. He should learn to shoot. But love the hustle. 1 part great, 1 part ugly. But a Win, nonetheless. GO DETROIT!
