    Well we rebounded HORRIBLY tonight 41 vs 64, our FG% was less (36.9% vs 42.9%), FG3% was less (20% vs 33% with the same number of shots, namely 15), while they shot the ball in total WAY more (80 for us ... 99 for them !!!!!! ). 13 vs 22 assists.

    I mean that's truly pathetic. Detroit is good, but they are not THAT good to warrant such statistical superiority. I haven't complained much this postseason, in fact I have I think only complained after game 6 in the first round vs the Boston Celtics, but this game deserves some serious, SERIOUS complaining.

    • Detroit 86, Indiana 67

      By LARRY LAGE, AP Sports Writer

      AP - May 17, 9:28 pm EDT

      AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- Indiana coach Rick Carlisle used all four of his second-half timeouts in the third quarter, trying to slow down the Detroit Pistons.

      It didn't work.

      Ben Wallace had 19 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks to lead Detroit to an 86-67 victory Tuesday night over the Pacers, and a 3-2 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinal series.

      The Pistons held Indiana without a field goal for a stretch 10:39 -- including the first 6:26 of the second half -- turning a tie game into a 22-point advantage. The defending NBA champions turned the game into a rout with a 30-4 run over the second and third quarters.

      The outcome was a foregone conclusion by the fourth quarter, but the final few minutes provided a couple of oddly entertaining moments.

      League rules require each team calls a timeout in the fourth quarter, but because Carlisle didn't have any left, so the Pacers were called for a technical foul with 2:17 left. Seldom-used Pistons former first-round pick Darko Milicic made the foul shot. He also made a hook shot that drew cheers.

      Game 6 is Thursday night in Indianapolis. Of the previous 123 series tied 2-2, the winner of Game 5 advanced 103 times (84 percent) in best-of-seven series.

      Indiana's Jermaine O'Neal had 14 points and Stephen Jackson scored 12. Reggie Miller was held to eight points -- his third single-digit scoring game of the series -- and Jamaal Tinsley scored just two.

      Tayshaun Prince had 16 points for the Pistons, Chauncey Billups and Richard Hamilton each scored 13 points and Rasheed Wallace added 10.

      Detroit's reserves -- led by Antonio McDyess and Carlos Arroyo -- led a 15-2 run late in the first half, giving the Pistons a 42-33 lead.

      The Pistons' starters -- all back from last year's title run -- put Indiana away with a 15-0 burst to start the second half.

      Detroit dominated because it was scrappy and aggressive on defense and unselfish and calm on offense.

      Detroit had a 23-21 lead after the first quarter following three lead changes and four ties. Prince led the Pistons with 10 points while O'Neal had eight for the Pacers.

      Indiana held Detroit scoreless for over four minutes in the second quarter and went ahead 31-27, then the Pistons took over.

      The first-half run began when Ben Wallace grabbed Prince's airball and scored and it ended with his swooping, reverse dunk.

      Detroit's bench is often pointed to as a weakness, but Arroyo and McDyess sparked the Pistons' comeback in the second quarter. Without making a shot, Arroyo was commanding during Detroit's surge with four assists and McDyess scored eight points in the second quarter.

      After a scoreless first half with two fouls, Rasheed Wallace went after O'Neal -- leading to the Indiana center's fourth foul -- on the first possession of the second quarter and made two free throws.

      The Pistons outscored Indiana 27-11 in the third quarter, taking a 69-46 lead. The Pacers pulled within 20 early in the fourth, then Detroit scored eight straight points.

      Notes

      If Game 7 is necessary, it will be Sunday back at The Palace. ... O'Neal, who has been bothered by a shoulder injury, grimaced in pain during halftime warmups and raised his arms above his head, but he played in the second half. ... Four hours before the game, agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were taking bomb-sniffing dogs around the arena.
