Game 4: Pistons Beat 76ers, Series Tied 2-2

The Pistons were down by 6 at the end of the 1st quarter, down by 10 at the end of the 2nd, and 14 in the 2nd half. But did I worry?


I didn't worry because I saw that the Pistons were playing the right way... Once I saw Chauncey Billup's aggressively driving to the basket, I knew the Pistons were good. It didn't matter if he missed, he kept going until the shots started going in. This is how Chauncey must continue to play in order for the Pistons to win this series. Mr. Big Shot finished with 18 points, 6 rebounds, 7 assists and 2 steals.

Tayshaun Prince had another great game. He was very active, going after rebounds and fighting for loose balls. Tayshaun led the way with 23 points, 4 steals and 6 rebounds.

Rip Hamilton shot lights out. He finished with 18 points scoring 12 of his 18 in the fourth quarter. He also took a charge from Andre Iguodala.

Antonio Mcdyess was excellent despite having to wear a face mask due to a broken nose. Neither the face mask nor the broken nose seemed to affect him. 'Dyess came off the bench and shot 5 for 8 and finished with 10 points, and 4 rebounds in 20 minutes. Jason Maxiell started in his place.

Rasheed Wallace had a double-double, 20 points and 10 rebounds.

In second half of Sunday nights game, the Pistons were the quicker team, out hustling the 76ers and beating them every spot. The Pistons beat the 76ers 93 - 84.

What the Pistons need to do now is stop waiting 'till they're down a game or two in this series to decide to get up. It's time to stop playing around with this young team, 'cause the 76ers are certainly not playing around with them. They seriously want to win this thing.

The Pistons need to put their feet to the pedal and burn some rubber.

I am a default Pistons fan. I hate anything Boston and believe the Pistons are the only other team that can win the East. Of course going into this year I felt the same way about the Tigers. At any rate, I'm pulling for the Pistons.
