CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Detroit Pistons (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/teams/det/) will win Game 4 -- guaran-Sheed.
One day after an 86-77 loss to the Cavaliers cut Detroit's series lead in half, forward Rasheed Wallace (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/players/3006/), the irrepressible motor mouth from the Motor City, boldly declared the Pistons would win Game 4.

On top of that, Wallace proclaimed the best-of-seven series over.

"I know we're going to win it," Wallace said sitting on the scorer's table following Sunday practice at Quicken Loans Arena. "We're going to bust their (butt). Tomorrow night is the last game here in this building for this year."

Sheesh, Sheed. Anything else big fella?

"Y'all can quote me, put it back page, front page, whatever," Wallace said.

"They can send whoever they want to send. I know the crew I think they're going to send. But it don't matter. I know we can do it, and they know we can do it. We know what we've got to do."

Although he said he respects the Cavs, Wallace isn't worried about giving them any motivation.

"It ain't bulletin board material, it's a fact," he said bluntly. "They can put it on the bulletin board. They can put it on a video. I don't care. I know what we're capable of doing, that's all that it is."

Wallace has gone prognosticator before in the playoffs, placing his neck on the line to inspire his teammates. And, the Pistons have responded with a win every time.

"That's what we do," Wallace said.

The Pistons, up 2-1 in the Eastern Conference series, will have to take better care of the ball and do more to contain LeBron James (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/players/3704/) or they'll have make another trip to Ohio. Game 5 is Wednesday night in Auburn Hills, Mich.

James, who scored 15 points in the fourth on Saturday while recording his second triple-double in his first playoffs, laughed off Wallace's boasts.

</td> </tr> </tbody></table>
"That's Rasheed," James said. "Every playoffs, you know you're going to get at least one good quote out of him. We can't get caught up in that."

The Pistons are accustomed to hearing Wallace spout off. And, they know when he does, they'd better come through.

"You have to go out there and play even harder and get a win for him," Richard Hamilton (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/players/3330/) said. "We have to have his back, do what we do, and get a win."

The Cavaliers' hopes rest with James, who in Game 3 had perhaps his finest all-around 48 minutes this season.

Although tempted to take over, James didn't until he had no other choice. For three quarters, he sat back and let things unfold before him. He entered the final 12 minutes with just six points on 3-of-10 shooting before seizing the game.

With a Wilt Chamberlain-like finger roll, James gave the Cavs their first lead of the second half, and over the next 6:36, he scored 11 with two assists -- the last to Damon Jones (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/players/3322/) for a 3-point dagger to put Cleveland ahead by 10.

"It's the best game he's played," Cavs forward Donyell Marshall (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/players/2627/) said. "He didn't press the issue. He found people, he rebounded and he scored when he needed to score."

For the second straight game, the Cavaliers will be without guard Larry Hughes (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/players/3251/). He remains with his grieving family following the death of his 20-year-old brother, Justin, from heart failure on Thursday.

Cleveland coach Mike Brown said the club is planning to attend the funeral on Tuesday in St. Louis before heading to Detroit for Game 5.

Other than James, the Pistons' biggest problem in Game 3 was, well, the Pistons.
<table style="padding-left: 8px; padding-bottom: 5px;" align="right" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"> <tbody><tr> <td>
</td> </tr> </tbody></table>
They made 17 turnovers -- only one less than their combined total in the series' first two games -- and missed shots that were ripped the nets in Games 1 and 2. For all their playoff experience, the Pistons looked like postseason newcomers down the stretch.

However, coach Flip Saunders isn't too concerned.

"It's a matter of getting back to meat-and-potatoes basketball," he said. "We tried to do too much. We played out of character."

While Wallace may have been the only Detroit player to publicly predict a victory in Game 4, the Pistons, who are 6-0 in Game 4s the past two seasons, are equally confident they still control the series.

Chauncey Billups (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/players/3174/) praised the Cavs for winning a Detroit-style, low-scoring game. Cleveland had to change its game plan to do so. Don't look for the Pistons to make major adjustments.

"Nothing's got to change," Billups said. "We just have to be a little more disciplined in what we're doing. We don't have to change none of our Xs and Os. We just have to not take any chances."

Wallace doesn't see his prediction as risky. He relishes the role of villain, and will be treated with the usual disdain by Cleveland fans, who are still angry at him for a flagrant foul against center Zydrunas Ilgauskas (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/players/3121/) this season.

Wallace isn't afraid of the Cavs, or anyone else.

"There's only one team out there, two teams tops, that can really give us that good challenge that it's like, 'All right, we know we can't make no mistakes against those teams,"' he said.

The Cavaliers aren't one?

"Nah," he said.

As much as I hate Sheed, and as badly as I hope the Cavs pound them in game 4, this is one thing I like about him. He backs these guarentees up, period. When he does this, his whole team gets his back, and they play their asses off.

They showed the quote on TNT, but I liked his second quote much more about how there are only 1 or 2 teams that worry them. Very funny

Shut the hell up Sheed, just shut the hell up. Let your game do the talking, this is just moronic. These stupid *** gaurentees **** me off every year, what the hell is the point he is just going to end up looking like in idiot when they lose one of these guarentee games.

:D

Sheed may be moronic, but he's our moron. And Sheed's teamates back him up every time he puts them on the spot like that.

It's good that his guarentees **** people off. That means they're working. Laimbeer was a master at getting his oppontents to think about hating him rather than playing the game. Sheed's just copying his routine.

We once won an NBA finals series mostly because the other team was so concerned about Laimbeer that they forgot they were in position to win a championship....

All true. But if the Pistons play, I think Hamilton said, "Harder", when Sheed gaurentees a victory what the hell are they doing the rest of the time. Maybe I'm trying to hard to find negatives here, but Sheed really gets under my skin.

... but Sheed really gets under my skin.

He's good at that eh? It hurts more when he says it against the Pacers and then backs it up. But when it's against the Cavs, I can only chuckle. I don't really expect the Cavs to win more than 2 games against Detroit.

I don't expect the Cavs to win more than one game. Rasheed Wallace is the verbal leader of the Pistons and what he says; goes!

Not according to this:

http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/recap?gameId=260515005


Wallace came in 4-0 in playoff games he has "Guaran-Sheed." His first came in Game 2 of the 2004 conference finals against Indiana, and he made another in '05 in Game 4 of a second-round series with the Pacers.

Last year, he also guaranteed Detroit would win Game 6 in Miami, and he promised the Pistons would be Milwaukee in a Game 3 earlier in these playoffs.

On a side note, Wallace averages only 11.3 PPG on 28 percent shooting in his guarantee games. Nice Rasheed.

I hate the Pistons too....but they aren't that bad...and the Cavs aren't that good.

Sheed got that ankle injury sometime in the 1st QTR.....which I think is a sign from the Basketball Gods telling him to shut his mouth. But you have to admit....if Sheed played the rest of that game....they would have pulled out a win.

The same way we would have beaten the Pistons two years ago if JO and Tinsley weren't playing with one arm and leg, respectively. Injuries are a part of the game and you just have to deal with them. The Pistons have gotten lucky and it seems their luck is running out.

I was just pointing out that I feel that the Cavs played a good game...especially on the defensive end....but they could easily have lost the game if Sheed was playing....especially since it was a 2 point game.
