Lock down I disagree about the lock-down D part of your post (agree with the rest). Pistons showed some of their best lock down D last night in the last 1/2 of the 4Q. In the quarter overall, they outscored Phoenix 37-22, and had a 20-6 run in the last 6 minutes. It doesn't get any better than that. (22 points a quarter is 88 points a game, pretty good against the Suns). I guess that some people would like to see us play that way the whole game ("the right way"), but I think that if we had tried, they'd have worn us out, and put a hurting on us in the last few minutes. (If I remember last year's game at Phoenix, I believe that we had a 10-pt lead in the 4Q and lost-could be wrong). I'd like to do a statistical analysis of points given up in the 4Q (maybe only in games that were close after 3Q) last year when we played D on every posession, versus this year, where we've toned it down and focused on O for the first three quarters. Bet we have better D down the stretch this year.
