Let's face it. Pacer fans can point to some questionable foul calls and the Pacers are hurting, but I honestly do not believe that made a significant difference tonight. The Pacers were not in it from the start. Detroit wanted it more. That's the only way to explain the complete reversal from Game 4. The Pacers didn't play smart, aggressive, or with any passion. The Pistons played well over the Pacers' heads. Rip Hamilton has officially ascended to the upper-echelon of NBA shooting guards. Rasheed was on fire from everywhere. The interior Piston defense was once again impenetrable. Good game Detroit, you worked hard for the win. I can only hope the Pacers can summon such internal strength on Tuesday.
