Game 2: Pistons Lead A Balanced Attack And Win Against 76ers

The Pistons led a balanced attack against the 76ers in game 2 Wednesday night. The entire team was aggressive offensively and defensively.

I love the way Tayshaun Prince played. He was very assertive making most of his points in the paint. He finished with 16 points and was responsible for helping the Pistons get that big lead over the 76ers.

Antonio Mcdyess acted like he owned the court. He had a double-doulbe, 16 points and 12 reounds. Rasheed Wallace played great once again. Sheed finished with 16 points as well.

I was very happy with the way the guards played. Chauncey Billups did a solid job, although his stats doesn't necessarily show it. He was aggressive like he suppose to be and finished with 9 points and 6 assists. Rip Hamilton played like a maniac. He was very aggressive and led the Pistons with 20 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists.

I really enjoyed watching Rip. I don't know what it is about him, but he makes me laugh when he gets upset, just like Rasheed. Perhaps its that sad puppy dog look he has in his eyes. Some people are just unintentionally funny. Anyways...The referee hit him with a tech for arguing a call and he argued his way straight to the bench. That was hilarious.

Rodney Stuckey, who had the Rookie jitters in game one, must have put on his big boy pants for game 2. He did a great job and finished with 12 points and 4 assists. I'm really proud of the Rookie.

Amir Johnson had 8 points and 4 rebounds in 14 minutes. He was great on help-sided defense alongside Jason Maxiell. That's always fun to watch.

The Pistons beat the 76ers 105 - 88

What you talk'n 'bout Rip?

Rip Hamilton and Tayshaun Prince was having a conversation on the bench. I couldn't here what Rip was saying, but he was counting on his fingers. Perhaps he was complaining about how many times he got fouled and didn't get the call. wouldn't you like to be the towel around his shoulders? (I'm talking to the ladies)
