    Do you have your finger on the pulse of the Pistons team? Do you really think you know the Pistons, inside and out? If so, you should be able to correctly gauge how they will respond tonight. How will the Pistons perform in Game #2?

    Well I ain't no fancy academician with a doctorate degree like SOME people in here who set up these fancy polls but I gave it my best shot and voted anyway.

    This is my first poll. Creating a poll is pretty easy. So easy, in fact, even TheeTFD can do it. :)

    Trying to figure out the Pistons, though, is not so easy. Just when I think they're out of it, they usually show up big (hence, my vote in this poll).

    These polls really throw me. I have to remember not to vote as both roscoe and micro.

    I just want to add that if the Pistons and Heat's shooting percentages would have been the opposite (if the Pistons shot 56% and the Heat shot 37%), then the score would have been Pistons 123, Heat 66... a 57 point margin of victory.

    Of course, we would not have continued to push the lead after 25 points or so.

    That is why I feel 15 point margin is reasonable.

    Some of those stats were freaky from game one.
    Did you find a way to cheat Cro? these polls know your IP#

    These polls do NOT know your IP. They know your username.

    I'm the only member with two accounts (for technical reasons). I've caught folks trying to set up aliases before. It won't fly. No cheating.

    the trickiest thing for me in voting here was trying to gauge how my vote would affect the outcome of the game.

    i finally went with 5-10 because i figured if i was being overconfident, then the universe would correct me with a humbling close call victory and if i was being unduly pessimistic, the universe would correct me with a delightful pistons blow-out. (voting for a heat victory was not an option for me because that violates the overriding principle of requisite faith).

    see what i mean? it's very very confusing (not to mention tiring) to have so many events in the universe depend on my decisions (so much so that certain events -- for example, ben's free throws in the playoffs -- have been eluding my best efforts to control them.

    The Pistons will awaken this evening. Going down 0-2 to a hungry Miami team would not be wise. The Pistons seem to enjoy playing from behind, however, not that far behind in the ECF, losing 2 in a row at home.

    I see a 5-10 point win, closer to 10 points. CB will rebound tonight and make J-Will look like, well J-Will!

    Going into Miami tied at one game each should prevent a game 3 collapse, well hopefully.

    I see a 12-4, 16-8 spurt in the first quarter and the Pistons will never look back.

    Twenty out of the 21 people that voted correctly predicted that the Pistons would win. Only DaviaG-Rap picked the Heat to win.

    AHB and Skluck both predicted correctly that the Pistons would win a close one. Everyone that picked the Pistons had a chance to be correct with their score prediction, as the very big lead shrunk during the 4th quarter meltdown.

    All I have to say was that was a > 15 point win disguised in the body of a 4 point win.

    The Heat scored 17 points in 1:46 for crying out loud. If they replayed the last 2 minutes, the Pistons would have won by + 15 at least.

    My prediction was for domination, and that is what happened... until we entered the Twilight Zone.

    Yeah, we should have won by at least 10. Those HORRIBLE calls (no calls) at the end of the game really hurt us.

    That's why I try to avoid betting...

    TheeTFD, thanks for the compliment on the size of my nads.

    Maverick, you were supposed to vote before the game.
