    Sheed did not have it in game 3, but billups has not had it for two years. I knew sheed would have a tough time in game 3, but it was up to billups to step up. No making excuses for sheed because he did not do it defensively either, but i am more concerned about billups.

    i posted before game 3 that we will lose that game but game 4 is guaranteed. I still hold my words... Game 4 is guaranteed and we win in 6.

    I might not be able to make it for chat during the game. Hopefully the Pistons will show more dedication to it than I will. ;)

    It's the coach. It's not the coach. How do you motivate these guys and their money? To me it seems you motivate these guys by showing what you have when things aren't working. Cold shooting happens. Do you have a system/philosophy in place where the sum is greater than the parts?

    Flip does not and the players know it. They won't kill themselves for him because he can't do it for them. These are the same players from '04 & '05, but the results are different. When DET was down 3-2 to CLE last year people said they were more confident at that point than when it was 2-2. Different teams and age has nothing to do with it. I really won't be surprised to see them lose this series.

    That being said, things were beyond bad in G3. Sheed was nailed to the floor during rebounds. The turnovers!?!? Something flukey beyond laying down on Flip was going on.

    Wether we like it or not, we are lumped in with the Nuggets and Suns of the world. Stats aside, we give up as many lay-ups as those teams do on D. There is no shame in losing. Teams like Washington and Houston got heart. The Pistons........?

    Philly should sign some dude off the street to run the point for them and see if he/she outplays "The Superstar" Chauncey Billups.

    Does the old saying - I have to see it to believe it come to mind?

    Or, how about; talk is cheap??

    What's discouraging is that Flip can't figure this stuff out during games like gm 3, but instead either figures it out after the game or has to be told by someone else.

    Joe D should invest in a headset for Flip, or is that not legal in the NBA?

    Yeah he always seems to be 2 or 3 steps behind a good coach like Mo Cheeks. The only thing he adjusts in-game is his tie when his twitch kicks in.

    Please let this be true :victory:

    Although i think a player will be moved as well.

    It feels like it's an early Christmas with all these articles. AA/Amir!. I'm definately Tivo'ing this game. I agree though the delayed reaction is pretty discouraging.

    reminds me of last year when we used to tread water for 3 quarters and throw a haymaker in the 3rd.

    pretty encouraging in the sense that it feels like we have the momentum. as far as this sesries goes.

    Well, one quarter does not a series make...but I think we will put the foot on the throat in Game 5. somebody brought up the pick and roll in the third(Flip?) But I think it was just us making shots and rotating on D.


    and I didnt like the 2 min end of game sixers finish either...

    :yellowprison:Break out the War Face!!!!!!

    Pistons win 93-84.

    NBA.com: Pistons at 76ers Game Info

    Good news for those of us who still want the Pistons to win. Pistons totally dominated the 2nd half to even up the series. A broken nose did no stop Dyess in this one. Thank you Rip for getting your shot back. Billups, Prince, Sheed, Dyess, Maxiel. Everyone played well in the 2nd half. Prince shot 11-12 for the game.

    It feels like a series now.
