Can the Pistons beat the Bulls?
Big Ben goes 2-2 and another 2-2 free throws in Hack-A-Ben in crunch time!!!!
Miami's announcer out of the playoffs... you know.
Bulls went from 21 turnovers in Game 3 to 5 in Game 4. We'll have to get that number on the higher side in the next round.
So people call the Pistons '04 win a fluke because they only got back to the finals the next year and lost in 7.
So what will they call last years Heat championship huh? HUHHH??????
Damn straight fakers!!!!
The champs have been swept in the first round. Notwithstanding everything that's happened to the Heat this year, I'm surprised with this result.
The ECF is clearly the Pistons-Bulls series. I'm looking forward to it.
I think it'll go 7 games.
Pistons in 6, maybe 5.
Don`t let the smooth taste fool ya!!!!!!!
But...but...Wade's shoulder...and his knee...and Shaq missed half the season...and...and...
They CAN, but I don't think it will be easy and if they don't focus and exhibit a killer instinct they CAN lose as well.
Who are you cheering for?
I just want to know what I am in for during chat. lol
Not sure about the rest of you, but I am concerned (worried) about these Bulls. IMO this is the ECF and the Pistons should not take them lightly. The heat were old so they could not keep up with the young fast Bulls. We are not that old, but we are almost there.
The first two games at the Palace will determine who wins this series. The Bulls are as high as can be at the moment. They will have no fear and their confidence couldn`t be higher right now. To come into the Palace and win game 1 and God forbid, take both games it would be a hole the Pistons would not emerge from.
IMO, The pistons need to win both opening games at the Palace. That way it will strike fear and doubt into the minds of the Bulls.
Riles seemed to be handling things pretty well after this game. Obviously he knew that it was over after Game 3. He appears to have accepted the obvious fact that he was able to get one 'ship only out of this bunch, which is a great achievement, but they're not getting another one.
Hopefully this week off will allow the magic and invincibility to wear off the Bulls. To play them right now while they're on a roll would be worse than to wait a week.
Agreed, webz. Alaa Abdelnaby on NBA TV was just saying that he expects the more experienced team to handle the long layoff better than the younger one.
Omg this the greatest thing ever. I just talked to my cousin down here in South Florida and he sounded so dejected it was if he was "sick."
He went on and on about Wade's shoulder and knee making excuse after excuse. Wade's knee and shoulder should not have any impact on his free throw shooting for himself and for the rest of his teamates for that matter. The Heat may have been a fluke and I think its great that they are %%%%ing out of there. When Shaq was asked last year by a South Florida reporter if the Pistons were still a great team he responded by saying "the Detroit Pistons are officially finshed." No Shaq the "%%%%in" Heaters are finished.
I see a break up here with possible retirements by Zo and the glove and Antoine Walker and Eddie Jones moving on too if both are FA. Shaq will hang around for another year but his dominince is gone and Wade will need another big man and more help off the bench to get back to the big dance.
IMO the Bulls would have beaten the Heat even if wade were 100% healthy probably 4-2.
