Well, this will be a very intense game. The Pacers will come out with emotion and with desparation. They will play with a sense of urgency. The crowd will be at a fervor pitch. No one wants to see Reggie lose on his home floor in his (potential) final game to their hated rivals. The Pistons much match the intensity that the Pacers will bring. The Pacers will play well, that's for certain.

The keys are the same as always. Jamaal Tinsley is the most important player in this series, for both teams. His ability (and inability) to control the game and get into the lane matters so much. And whatever team is able to get to loose balls and make the hustle plays has won every game.

I think Reggie will come out with somewhat of a retro performance, and the emotion will allow the Pacers to make the hustle plays necessary.

The Pacers win Game 6, forcing a winner-take-all finale Sunday in Detroit.

Reggie will either be his old self tonight, or the Reg we saw versus the Bulls on the final regular season game.

He was terrible in that game, and even when he was taking good shots, they were not falling.

Wow, it's getting hot in my house...not quite sure if it got to 100 degrees today but it's going to be insane over the next couple days.

108 degrees tomorrow, 110 on Saturday, 111 on Sunday, 109 on Monday, and then it "finally" cools off to low 100's again.

Not sure why I'm so into weather right now but anyway...

Looks like it's pretty horrible in Indy right now. I was going to compare temperatures, but I saw tornado watches instead.

Well the Pacers played well in game 3 when the weather sucked. It could be a trend...

We should be up by 11-12 if JO hadn't tried to back his defender down and passed out to a wide open Reggie on the perimeter. God, I hate when he does that. Old habits die hard.

At the half: Critical Points.......Tinsley has got to half a decent second half and play smart........Freddie could be a big factor if he becomes aggressive. Reggie needs to quit looking for fouls and just keep on hitting those shots. Lock down on defense and move the ball on O. That is all.

Or we can just blame him for taking fadeaway jumper after fadeaway jumper. At least he is making a few tonight. Lets hope he can sustain his good shooting

Ya well the only reason they are ahead is Reggie, in his own words, "has his legs under him tonight" 7-9fg 3-3 3pters. If he was shooting his average 29% Detroit would be up by 10

Reggie's comments at the half with Michele Tafoya:

Q: Six of eight from the floor, 3-of-4 from three point range, you haven't shot this well all series, how'd you get it back?

Reggie: "Well, I'm getting my legs underneath me a little bit, I'm taking my time. They've been showing out on a lot of screens and I'm getting pretty good looks. Hopefully we can get it going in the 2nd half like that."

Q: Jermaine O'Neal was really emotional yesterday talking about how much he wanted this for you. He's really responded. How has he done that in spite of the shoulder that's hurting him so much?

Reggie: "He's a trouper, he's a gamer. He understands that you gotta play hurt. It's not the time to be crying about shoulders or whatever. He's a real man. He's coming out and he's showing it."

Q: You guys opened up well, they went on a run, you came back with a run. How do you sustain the energy you need?

Reggie: "Well, we're going to have to. They're the world champs and they've seen this before. Every time we make a run, they always seem to be answering our punches so we gotta go on bigger runs I guess."

The scariest thing to me are the following:

1. Rip Hamilton is scoring. This is not good. He is the Piston I fear the most.

2. Chauncy is scoring, he is the Piston I fear next.

3. We can't play much better and we aren't kicking their butt. I just hope we can sustain the effort.

Our help defense has to improve dramatically in the 2nd half.

We are gonna come down a little in the 2nd half as far as FG%. If we can finish the game around 49% we should be OK. Of course we need to keep the Pistons under 45% for the game.
