We assume that in Game 3 Pat Riley had all the answers. Wrong. Tay's made it clear that the Pistons didn't run the sets they planned to, and that he was never really given an opportunity to get it going. We also had Sheed heating up but went away from him. Trying to look at Game 3 objectively, the Pistons are a few minor tweaks away from hitting that magical 90 point mark before the Heat. First one to 90 wins. What else should they do? Is it really enough to say, rebound, defend, protect the ball (which are all passive responses) or should the boys take the fight to the Heat and score, draw fouls, create mismatches and increase tempo? I'm a big proponent of forcing the Heat to defend in the paint. Putting Ben in a position to flop his way to early trips to the line. You can read me posting in every game chat "PLAYOFF FOULS". Sure Ben won't hit his FTs, but by racking up fouls on Walker, Shaq and Wade, Pat Riley loses flexibility with his rotation, having to sit his guys when they are playing well, and possibly playing reserves even if they are not producing. I've seen enough 90s Knicks games to know that Riles gets frustrated when the reserves are forced to come in due to foul trouble. Thoughts?
