    Is Game 4 a must win? It's very possible that we can see the Pistons fall down 1-3, but can they win the series without winning Game 4?

    I definitely think it's a must-win. Stick a fork in the Pistons if they go down 1-3 to this team.

    I don't think its a must win, but it would be hard to comeback if we lost. I don't think it's a MUST win because if we lose we have 2/3 at the palace, and if we take care of buisness there we just have to win 1 road game. Easier said than done though.

    Yes, Wade is too explosive. And he is getting just enough help.

    The Pistons are finished even if they win Game 4. I just don't see how this jump shooting team of ours can beat the Shayne and O'wade show. Those two are each shooting like 60%. If Miami can get anything out of the supporting cast we simply can't beat them- not with our pathetic offense. The only way we win is if we get Maxiell, Davis and Cato off the bench and foul anyone who comes close to the paint. Let Wade get his, but foul Shaq and put anyone going for a layup on his ass. Make it hurt and screw the flagrants. The Heat are a bunch of pussies so beat em up.

    If we get motivated I don't see us shooting 24/7. I don't know but somehting has to get this teams blood flowing again.

    Ben has a big job on his hands now. He has to keep Wade and Shaq out of the paint. Plus he has to get boards. Come on Ben:fingerscr. Sheed needs to help too:help:.

    No doubt it`s a must win. If we can just string two wins in a row against Miami, we have a chance. The way the Pistons are going now I`m not convinced we would win a game 7, AT THE PALACE.

    Like the Professor said, in the strictest sense of the word, it isn't a "must win" since its not an elimination game. But to be down 3-1 to the Heat, isn't exactly "sitting pretty" either.

    My vote is for must win.

    Under different circumstances I would say no this isn't a must win, but not with the way we've been playing lately. And then you add to the fact that Miami is no Orlando, as if that's not an understatement. There is no way we can go down 1-3 to this Miami team and expect to come back.

    Then again, this team has been in some serious holes in the past that many people never thought they could themselves get out of before. Which really goes to show, you can never count this team out. So you never really know, with this bunch.

    They don't get much "MUST'er. I'm already sitting on pins and needles.

    Then again, you predicted the Heat to win Game 2...
