Pistons Rally To Beat Nuggets

I knew that the Pistons was going to beat the Nuggets Friday night. Here's how...

1. Allen Iverson's shot was off in the first half. 2. Rodney Stuckeys back tightened up on him to the point that he had to go to the Locker Room and didn't return in the fourth. 3. Rasheed Wallace and Rip Hamilton were out with injuries. 4. The Pistons couldn't make their shots from the free throw line. 5. Chauncey Billups was knocking down shots from left to right. Yet the Pistons were only down by ten in the first half.

In the second half The Pistons didn't have to do anything spectacular to win. All they had to do is tighten up their defense, continue to rebound the ball, move the ball a little more than they did in the first half, and make their shots at the free throw line.

Chauncey Billups did a great job for the Nuggets. I was proud of him. He had 30 points. However the Pistons, Allen Iverson, Tayshaun Prince an Arron Afflalo were the Big Shots in the second half. Allen Iverson, after having shooting poorly night in the first half, knocked down shots when it counted.

He did a great job finding Tayshaun Prince when he was open, and Arron Afflalo was eight for eight at the free throw line. The game was close in the fourth, but the Pistons took the lead and got the win beating the Nuggets 93-90.

I am so proud of the Pistons. Imagine how they would've played if they were all healthy.
