Pistons Shut Down Lebron James And Beat Cavaliers

The Pistons led through all four quarters against the Cavs Saturday night. They shot 60% and their defense was spectacular. They even did the unthinkable... Yes, they completely shut down Lebron James, limiting him to just 13 points, and 4 - 14 shooting.

One Piston responsible for shutting down Lebron was non-other than the fearless Rookie Arron Afflalo. In fact, the Pistons didn't just limit Lebron, they made a full defensive effort shutting down the entire Cavaliers team. New comer Theo Ratliff did such a great job defensively, that Zydrunas Ilgauskas was afraid to even look at the basket. All of the Pistons played great and they weren't even fazed at the fact that Ben was lurking underneath the basket... A true sign that the Playoffs is near...

Tayshaun Prince had 12 points, 7 rebounds, 2 steals and 5 assists. Anotnio Mcdyess had a double-double 12 points and 10 rebounds. Jason Maxiell had 13 points and shot 6 - 8.

The Pistons beat the Cavaliers 85 - 71.

Pistons Fans cheer for Ben Wallace

Ben Wallace's back locked up on him in the third quarter ( back spasms ). Fans cheered for him as he was being helped to his feet and off the court... He didn't return.
