    I'm a Piston fan, but this victory is almost bittersweet. It'll be very sad to not watch Reggie Miller again. Reggie is awesome. I'm a huge fan of his.

    We out perform them in every area except in trips to the free throw line. You can't tell me we weren't more active than them inside and couldn't get more calls.

    i think everyone agrees there needs to be a federal investigation in to Ref corruption now... i agree that was wrong they had 4 times more free throws and we had what 10 more rebounds and more

    what a shame

    • Detroit 88, Indiana 79

      By STEVE HERMAN, AP Sports Writer

      AP - May 19, 9:44 pm EDT

      INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Detroit Pistons are headed back to the Eastern Conference finals, while Reggie Miller is headed into retirement without ever having won a championship ring.

      Richard Hamilton scored 28 points and Chauncey Billups added 23 as Detroit beat the Indiana Pacers 88-79 Thursday night, winning their best-of-seven series 4-2. The Pistons will open the conference finals on Monday at Miami.

      It was the final game for Miller, the NBA's 12th-leading career scorer, who is retiring after 18 years in the league. He broke out of a shooting slump and led Indiana with 27 points, and his final basket was a 3-pointer with under 2 minutes left to pull Indiana to 82-79.

      Hamilton then hit a basket and Billups added two free throws with 26 seconds left before Miller missed a 3-pointer and left the game to a prolonged, standing ovation -- which the Pistons joined in -- as the crowd chanted ``Reg-gie, Reg-gie'' with 16 seconds to go.

      At the end of the game, the chant changed to ``One more year.''

      Jermaine O'Neal, still bothered by a sore shoulder that sidelined him late in the regular season, added 22 points and 11 rebounds for Indiana.

      The Pacers led almost the entire first half and turned back every Detroit rally until two straight baskets by Hamilton put the Pistons ahead early in the fourth quarter. The final score marked the Pistons' biggest lead of the game.

      Detroit has won eight consecutive playoff series clinchers over the last three seasons.

      The Pacers, hoping to extend Miller's career at least one more game, finally found their shooting touch after being blown out the past two games.

      Miller, one of the NBA's great clutch shooters who had been stymied into 38 percent shooting through the first five games of this series, shot 11-of-16 and made four 3-pointers. Reminiscent of past playoff glory, two of his 3-pointers came in a span of 39 seconds late in the second quarter after nine straight points by Billups and a free throw by Hamilton brought the Pistons within 40-37.

      Billups dribbled out of bounds for a turnover, and Miller hit one 3-pointer. Seconds later after Billups missed a 3-point attempt and with the Indiana crowd already chanting for Miller, he responded with another 3-pointer to put the Pacers up 46-37.

      Indiana had a chance to widen the lead after an offensive foul on Rasheed Wallace, but the Pistons got the ball back when O'Neal missed a shot and Tayshaun Prince scored just ahead of the halftime buzzer.

      Detroit got back into the game with two big runs in the third quarter.

      The first time, after a rebound basket by Ben Wallace cut Indiana's lead to 48-47, O'Neal, Dale Davis and Miller scored consecutive baskets, and a free throw by Miller on a technical foul against Rasheed Wallace made it 55-47.

      The Pacers still led 59-51 before a basket and free throw by Hamilton started an 11-2 run, and two more free throws by Hamilton gave the Pistons their first lead, 62-61. Indiana regained the lead at the end of the period on a dunk by Foster and opened the fourth quarter with a basket by O'Neal and 3-pointer by Anthony Johnson.

      The Pistons then scored seven straight points to take the lead for good, denying the Pacers a chance to give Miller a shot at a championship. Indiana's only trip to the NBA Finals was in 2000, when the Pacers lost to the Los Angeles Lakers.

      Notes

      Miller, whose 25,279 points stand 12th in NBA regular-season scoring, finished 18th with 2,972 career playoff points. ... Billups set a Pistons career playoff record for 3-pointers. His 2-for-6 against the Pacers made him 82-for-247 in 48 playoff games with Detroit. Isiah Thomas held the old record of 81-for-234. ... Miller had two assists after totaling just one in the past four games. ... This is the first time in nine playoff series the Pacers have lost after leading 2-1. ... Indy 500 drivers Helio Castroneves, Sam Hornish Jr. and Scott Dixon attended the game.

    Wow, I can't believe it's over. It just can't be. Y'all, I'm 17 years old, all I've known is "Reggie Miller's Pacers" against everyone. Thank you Reggie, give us one more year, it can't be over...
