I don't suppose Spike Lee is at the game tonight?

I'd take up a collection to bring him if it would help ignite Reggie. ;)

Unfortunately I won't be able to see the start of the game - have to leave in a few minutes to run an unavoidable errand. Here's hoping that we're still in striking distance in this game when I get back! :fingerscrossed:

Our D is fantastic and Ben Wallace is getting blocked by the rim, I doubt the Pistons will continue to play this bad the whole game. But the Pacers with a 10pt lead are hard to beat.

One thing I disagree with Rick is the quick subs when the starters are getting the job done. Dance with who brung 'ya.

Great vocabulary, Shade. Such an experssive term. Use it all the time myself. The number of letters you repeat in it makes for such emotional sensitivity.

I think the level of offensive frustration requires a few more "R's," thus

AAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

Yeah the announcers are annoying - Ron Artest hits a big 3 to get us out of the drought and calmly he says "Ron Artest with the 3 pointer."

If Jermaine wants to be a MVP, he has to make that shot down low.

And AJ was a dumbass not kicking the ball out when he had all the time in the world on that series when he threw up an awful shot.

Just pathetic.

I think the Pacers are just too inexperienced. They can't compete. Fortunately this will have been a great growing experience and should be more composed next year.

Here's the way I see it: If the series goes to 7 the league would have a tired Pistons team against the Lakers and it would be over in 4. With a rested Pistons team, it just might go to 6. Which equals more ad revenue.

And as always, our inability to hold onto a lead always catches up with us.

Of course people always made the excuse back when we won these ballgames that we'd still always come back to win so it was no big deal.

Looks like it really caught up to us didn't it?
