The Pistons should take a moment to ask Doc Rivers to thank Danny Ainge- after all, it was the Celtics who enabled the 3-way trade to happen that resulted in Rasheed ending up in Detroit :rolleyes:

Is it me or is JO being less aggressive on defense as far as contesting shots and giving his man space? Trying to stay out of foul trouble?

Although I haven't been concentrating on it, it seems to me like Detroit is doing a nice job of keeping the ball out of Jermaine's hands. I think the reason he is not being noticed defensively is because his man is rarely getting the ball on the offensive end...You can't block your guy's shots if he's not taking any.

Damnit Carlisle, quit feeding post for one on one bull crap. We have no rebounding support and have now let Detroit back in the game.

Horribly called 3rd quarter. We are force feeding O'neal and we have NO BALL MOVEMENT WHICH IS A DEATH MARCH FOR THE PACERS.

Penetrate and dish for dunks. Move the F-ing ball.!!!!!!!!!
