    If you can explain me how seasoned vets can look like frightened chickens, I'm all ears. We have more than two years heard from them: do not worry, been there, seen that , we know how things are.

    Where are these PO ready vets?

    oh and bench wasnt much better, regardless who played( maxiell was only bright spot there)

    Rip was awful.

    Sheed was decent until he choked. Billups is just outclassed by Miller but managed to choke anyway.

    It's possible the Pistons would have won this game if Flip had played Afflalo instead of Lindsey Hunter.

    Now I'm speechless. Philly played tough, but the Pistons gave this one away after having decent leads.

    Nice short summaries of the game. I really have nothing else to add. But it was horrible.

    Pistons deserved the loss. Completely outplayed in the 2nd half with a combination of Philly's defense, poor shooting and horrible transition defense. Miller was able to penetrate at will and the Philly's got the hot hand. When was the last time Rip has shown up big in the playoffs? Starting guards were handed their lunch. CB missed FT's in the clutch and looked completely useless when trying to penetrate in the 4th. Once again Flip is clueless in trying to stop a opponents run. Furious and sickened.

    Lack of leadership? For all his cockiness, the other players don't have any particular reason to trust Chauncey anymore; they never had any to trust Flip; Ben is gone; Sheed is iconoclastic; Rip and Tay are timid by nature.

    They have a decent chance of upsetting the Sixers in this series, though.

    In retrospect. The Sixers did have an advantage in that they have been playing in the month of April. Pistons starters looked rusty. When was the last time that they have had to close out a game after playing the 1st 3 quarters.

    They looked like a group of players that have not had to play a serious game in a few weeks.

    Re: 1st Round Game 1 - Sixers Sun Apr 20 6PM

    I didnt chat tonight because I was busy eating 'my own' words. I'm watching NBATV for post game comments. What I saw:
    1. Again...Flip's ridicoulous bench rotations. He puts Stuckey in the game as point guard FOR LINDSAY! Stuck didnt know what to do out there because he kept deferring to Lindsay.
    2. The starters keep asking for the ball. Rip has to go. He isnt strong enough to play HIS game anymore and he takes shots from Prince. Prince is a much better player when Rip is on the b ench THATS why I will continue to say Prince should be my 6th man.
    3. No AA No Amir...they are needed against the young dogs of Sixers. But our coach is to stupid to see it.
    4. 3 playoff losses in a row for Pistons and THEY STILL didnt take Sixers seriously. Unbelievable.

    This was a head game and we blew it AGAIN!! Watch what boston does to Atlanta tonight...watch!!!
