Miami (I live there )
Its funny how everybody says "for Miami to win, Dwayne Wade will have to score at least 40 points." Van Gundy sits him when the team is down, and when he comes back, the team is up 9.
Miami beats SA in 6

Pheonix is still alive!! I used to think stoudemire was overated...tonight pretty much changed my mind...lol. I'd like to see nash get one, but don't think it's gonna happen for them this year...

I'm a Detroit fan and tomorrow is a must win...i think its going 7 anyways
05-31-2005, 02:37 PM
I am watching it and I still can't believe that Detroit can score that much. ANd how in the hell does Phoenix only win one game so far in this series. WHat is Coach Brown's problem. I mean he seems never satisfied with what ever team he is with. I don't think that this will cause a distraction within the Detroit organization though because he missed a good patch of games due to his surgery and they still made the playoffs. HE was rumored to be interested in the NY Knicks job earlier this year and even stated on record that the NY would be a dream job and yet the Pistons made it to the Playoffs. SO I don't think it will be a distraction but if Shaq continues to get healthy then I don't see how Detroit will win.

LETS GO HEAT!!! LETS GO HEAT!!!!
Got my game 5 tix at the AAA....hopefully we will be lookng to close out the series.
05-31-2005, 07:05 PM
I'm a huge Pistons fan!! I went to a bunch of the games back when they were winning world titles as the Bad Boys. This series will really test them though. If they loose tonight, i think it may be over...
05-31-2005, 07:46 PM
Yeah, no ****, Stoudemire is awesome! So is Nash, man he's quick and athletic. But allas, SA is the ****.Originally Posted by lifted

Damn....Pistons worked our asses tonight...although I must say the refs had some rather interestng calls all night that seemed to favor Detroit... but nonetheless, they still worked us

I'm here @ work tonight so I had to watch the screen refresh on ESPN.com.. Glad to see that Det won by a decent margin. Prince will be MVP if Pistons win again..
05-31-2005, 10:29 PM
Hoping the Suns find a miracle. Kinda leaning Detroit in the East. Tough life for a Golden State fan...
05-31-2005, 10:43 PM
i just got back from watching the game...man, both wade and shaq were in a slump. Pistons gave it to 'em raw dog style tonight..lol. I agree that prince has been turning it up the last few games...tonight was just brutal for miami's D.

I like Pheonix, but teams who don't play defense don't win championships. Marion is one of my favorite players but he is standing around waiting for a pass to dunk the ball - too much 'and1' crap. Spurs win 4-1.

CEDeoudes59, I'm with you bro. I think the Spurs will do it tonight, if not it may end up going 4/3. Gotta go watch the game
06-01-2005, 08:35 PM
Go Heat! I'm a Miami fan (cept for the ****ing Dolphins) in all sports. Shaq's been my fav. player since he was drafted by the Magic.
Wade is a freaking beast.

I noticed Detroit players have stopped wearing their rings from last year.
I'd be surprised if Miami takes another game now that they are every other day. Detroit and San Antonio are two teams that get better as they get further into a series, they lock in on a team and its usually lights out.
Spurs and Pistons will be one heck of a series, but an ugly one.

Obviously I am a Pistons fan. I kind of figure they will lose tonight, win back in Detroit and hopefully win game 7 in Miami. I don't know though, Miami makes me nervous. It doesn't seem like they can stop Shaq. But I think they will win if they play Piston basketball which it does not seem like they are doing tonight. I can't tell, I am stuck here at work until 3AM.
06-02-2005, 10:31 PM
I'm here @ work again, so I missed this one. Pistons better get their act together. Miami is definitely no slouch! What happened tonight? Were Shaq & Wade that good tonight, or did the Pistons beat themselves???
06-02-2005, 11:11 PM
Wade was hurt 1/2 the game and wasnt much of a factor (that right there says something). Shaq was great. He was tough inside and got all of Detroit into foul trouble.Originally Posted by Yjyankee
Rasheed Wallace (punk) was a non-factor. He might as well not even played. I'm sorry, but Miami is the better team, no matter how the series ends up.
06-03-2005, 12:15 AM
Went to the Game......just didnt seem like Detroit had a rhythm at all. Couldnt shoot well..couldnt rebound...just looked like Miami wanted it more.
Got to get my Game 7 tix soon as I have a strong feeling this is going seven and I dont see Detroit losing an elimination game at home.

Spurs are the best team. Pistons will give them a run, but I really don't think they have a chance.
06-06-2005, 10:22 PM
should be a good series. Hopefuly I don't have to watch so many games on ESPN.com for that one.. I hate shift work!!!
06-06-2005, 10:32 PM
It's all on ABC I believe.
06-06-2005, 11:42 PM
Id be surprised if Pistons beat the Spurs Miami almost had them beat with 5 starters playing hurt...
06-07-2005, 12:27 AM
Pistons are good in the clutch, SA can choke sometimes. There will be some good defensive match-ups for sure. I doubt it will be a sweep or anything, but the Spurs will take it.
06-07-2005, 12:47 AM
Night night Heat....this series should be awesome both teams have a solid starting five!!!
06-07-2005, 01:14 AM
What a good game 7 tonight. I thought the Heat gave the game away at the end, they had a chance to pull away with 3-4 minutes when they were up by 5 and had no killer instinct. The killer instinct is what makes champions and they didn't display it. Free throws were huge down the stretch too.
06-07-2005, 07:26 AM
Same thing was said about Miami, LA, last years Pacers,& last years Nets.Originally Posted by ryansm
The Spurs are one heck of a ballclub but to say the Defending Champs dont have a chace.....well, I hope the Spurs come out thinking that way.

I'm sorry I just hate losing to Detroit. Rasheed Wallace and Chauncey Billups are the biggest thugs in the NBA.
06-07-2005, 09:29 AM
Die.....I am with you....But I cant stand Wallace the most.
I guess all we can do is try to keep this group together for another year and just hope that there are no injuries since our entire starting 5 couldnt event get time on the training table. IF they come back together next year...they will be there in the Finals.
No disrespect to Detroit...but what could have been if we were a little healthier.
06-07-2005, 10:45 AM
Well Nets and Pacers props to Detroit, Last yrs Lakers though Karl Malone's injury was a little big but detroit was still probably the better team with Kobe Nryant being an *******. Heat are a different story I think though healthy Heat are probably as good or better than any of Shaqs Laker title teams, better roleplayers and dwayne wade is less selfish than kobe.Originally Posted by mmorpheuss
Great to see Detroit finally in a big series versus a healthy opponent (crosses fingers for Duncan's ankle)
06-07-2005, 10:48 AM
****!!!! I lost 200 bucks last night!!! Godamnit....wtf, hte heat shoulda had that game, they ****in' gave that **** away. I'm so ****in' pissed...ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! !
06-07-2005, 11:09 AM
Damon Jones choked big time!
To be up 3-2 and not be able to win the series is pretty sad.
06-07-2005, 12:20 PM
Woohoo, I am actually from Florida and Detroit is my team. I started watching them last year in the playoffs and the way they play team ball with an outstanding defense impressed me more than any other team in the NBA (on top of the fact that I dont like Shaq). No superstars, just 5 medium to upper level talented starters that can do some amazing things. Their bench isnt to bad either. I got to give it to Miami though, they played some impressive ball, especially Dwayne when he was healthy. I dont think we'll have a problem against the Spurs though. Time will tell. Back to back
06-07-2005, 07:33 PM
Do you really think so? I know Rasheed used to act like a spoiled brat, but he seems more mature these days. Still not fond of him though.Originally Posted by DieTrying

The Pistons vs. Heat series was a very good series. But like I said at the beginning of the playoffs, Detroit is going to win it all again. I say the Pistons in 6 vs. the Spurs.
