This game tonight was really all about the Pistons. They looked completely uninterested in the first half - they were flat and looked like they didn't want to play the game. I was thinking well maybe teams are starting to overlook the Pacers. I knew something was a little bit off when the Pacers scored their first 4 baskets on layups. One huge key was Lindsey Hunter he came in late in the second and turned the entire game around. Pacers 14 point lead went to 3 at halftime. Then the 3rd quarter started and the Pistons played defense like they did in 2004 - very impressive.
Pacers weren't even that bad in the 3rd quarter I thought the Pistons were simply that good. They started playing playoff basketball and we aren't capable of playing at that level and then when things officially started to "go bad" the Pacers in their current state of mind have no ability to turn things around - they don't have the confidence.
Shawne Williams played a great first half - he was impressive - Granger made a few very nice drives and even passed off a few times for scores.
Not much else to say
