The Bad Boys Tie the Series

Let me hear you say! Deeeeetrooooit baaaasketballlllllll!! Yeah! The battle is definitely on between the Detroit Pistons and the Boston Celtics. The so-called Bad Boys of Motown won 103-97 against KG and the Celts in Game 2, tying the series to 1-1. They are a team that is so consistent in being good that they elude greatness -- sometimes, it seems, on purpose. - Scoop Jackson

Now, it's time for Kevin Garnett to prove his prowess at The Palace in Games 3 & 4. I'm really loving this! Six out of the 10 Pistons were in double-figures. The leading scorer for the Pistons was Richard Hamilton with 25 points and was followed Chauncey Billups scoring 19 points. Rasheed Wallace, Tayshaun Prince, and Antonio McDyess, had 26 rebounds all in all. This is definitely what you call Detroit Basketball.

On the greener side of the court, it was Paul Pierce who dominated with 26 points while KG added 24 points and 13 boards. Where was Ray Allen? Well, I think he's slowly getting in shape with 25 points and eight assists. Boston's Big Three wasn't able to hold on to their homecourt advantage as the Pistons wreak havoc during the first half. "The atmosphere's going to be crazy. We're geeked about getting back to our home court. The fans are excited, and now it's our job to take care of home court," said Rip Hamilton. Superb win for the Pistons!.. Bravo!..

Spurs show their age in loss to Lakers When the Spurs win, it's about their experience but when they lose it's all about their age!.. Duh!! Such foolishness!..

"He [KB24] was doing a trust-his-teammates thing in the first half. He was checking it all out and seeing where his territory was going to be. In the second half, he went to work," said Spurs coach, Gregg Popovich.

“We don't want to go down 0-2 because it's very difficult to come back," said Spurs G, Tony Parker.

So happy in Detroit! I'm so glad they're coming back home now to win a few in the Palace.

Deeetroit Basketball!

The Spurs/Lakers game should be interesting.. My guess is the Spurs take game 2. I know you're hoping for that Halley!

I love the fact that Detroit won. Originally, when Boston got KG and Ray-Ray I was really happy for them, but then as soon as the season started I really hated them with a passion. I'm not even sure what it was, but I think it's because everyone was pretty much handing them this year's ring when they haven't even done anything. So here's my dilemma: I want Boston to lose, yet at the same time I don't wanna Detroit in the finals again. So for entertainment's sake, as much as I hate the C's, it would be nothing short of awesome if there was a Celtics-Lakers finals. Lord knows nobody wants another Pistons-Spurs snorefest again.

And Halley, you're absolutely right, I'm going for the Lakers!
