Here the thing. I was looking at the ECF stats for the 1st time http://www.nba.com/pistons/stats/2005/conf_finals_stats.html AS a team the Pistons scored 84.7 versus 89.9. The points allowed were about on par with the what they let in during the reg season. FG%. Huge difference of .397 to .515 Offensive boards and TO's were good at 11.3/8 and 12.0/16.0 respectivly. Pistons shot 1 more free throw than the Heat and at a better PCT .740/.634. Ben Wallace only averaged 34.3 MPG, most of that was not foul trouble rather coaches decision even though Dyess did not bring that much more offense. Ben only avg 9.5 RPG and .67 BPG. Sheed only avg 0.33 BPG. The 2 Wallaces were completely ineffective in their no fly zone. Blocks per game - Pistons 2.5 Heat 6.0 Scoring leaders were Rip,Billups, Prince, Sheed, Ben, Dyess at (20.7, 18.0, 16.2, 10.5, 6.0, 6.0 ). Billups averaged 7.2 APG. Actually Billups surprisingly put up decent stats even with game 6. 3-pt PCT's were .288 for and .295 against. Billups and Sheed both shot .255 in 3's and Rip shot .294. Kind of looks like a team that lost their shot and had things going overall except for the opponent enjoying a high FG%. It does not look like a system designed for the playoffs. Perhaps it was too predictable for the Heat to figure out or Sheeds ankle injury which limited him in the post took away too many open shot opps for the team. Also the heart and soul of the Team Ben Wallace was not much of a factor.
