    No doubt. Couple of more wins and we would have had Orlando then the depleted Celts.

    If it ain't rough it ain't right.

    Dang! If only we weren't scheduled for those two Sunday games, I'm sure, just sure, we could beat them!

    For us to beat a team that is 40-1 in their building on a Sunday?

    (1 in 41 opponent's record against them) x (4 in 12... our Sunday record)

    That means that our odds of winning that Sunday game in their building is...

    .02439 x .333 = .00813

    or 1 in 123.

    aren't they 39-2 in their building (they lost last night to Philly at home).

    .04878 x .333 = .01624 or 1 in 61.5

    At least the game is on ABC so that I can watch at home. Didn't buy NBA package this season.

    I won't be able to watch the game live, but I'll tape it so I can savor the pain.

    Hopefully, they'll post a clip of Tay touching LeBron's muscles to You Tube. Highlight of the series I'm afraid...

    hope i dont have to watch these same pistons next season....roster definitely needs tweaking

    guess they wouldn't look so bad if they weren't playing the cavs in the first round!

    We have to win Game 2 to have a chance because the Pistons wont win both games 3 and 4. We dont have a homecourt advantage. The team plays inconsistant both on the road and at home.

    Can I recast my vote? Unless Lebron tweaks an ankle there's little chance the Pistons win one game.

    :MusicBigGrin: That's funny, but kinda sad too.


    You know, I checked the score and saw Detroit was down 41-38, and thought...Wow...could I really have been so wrong?

    Then I checked again a few minutes ago and saw they were blown out.

    But the thing that DID surprise me is reading all the posts. So many fans sound angry and somewhat surprised at the results. It makes me sad to think people had so much faith in these guys when it was so obvious that they would produce nothing. I guess fans are just like that and deserve better.

    We had the bad boys era and then the Teal era. What will the last few years be known as? The switch era? I hope not.
