I don't know if I can watch Game 6. I grew about 50 grey hairs watching tonight's game.

LETS CLOSE THIS CRAP OUT IN DETROIT PLEASE!!!!!! no more game 7's, their too much!!!


You could make a case for any of the 5 starters today, even Rondo who played very well outside of his shooting.

I'm gonna go Ray also, with the clutch shot in the last minute while our offense was anemic, and two huge FTs.

KG and Perk played great ball also.

The reason we let them back in was because we stopped attacking and let Detroit Zone us up....We were too tired because Doc didn't use Powe or Eddie House....to many minutes for our starters....Hey, Magic Johnson would have NEVER hit that Junior Junior Sky Hook in "87 if Dumbass KC Jones hadn't worn out our starters...we had a 17 point lead in the 3rd in THAT game too....whew!

No way, cigar belongs to Perk! He keeps getting robbed.

Perk has to get the cigar. It's definitely tough not giving it to Ray in his biggest game of the playoffs.

The bench was giving us nothing, I have no problem with the starters playing nearly the entire game the way they performed and the way the bench performed.

Agreed....but THAT's why we were too tired in the 4th.

Bleh I thought Doc had a good 2nd half. I probably would have played all of my starters the whole 2nd half.

I've got no problems with Doc playing the starters so many minutes.

At this point, I'd run them until the passed out from exhaustion.

Perk was awesome in a whole

Allen was awesome in a whole

Perk was not clutch (tech) in the final minutes.

Allen was clutch in the final minutes.

Cigar goes to ray.

The tech could have cost us but I don't blame Perk since he gets fouled so much yet doesn't get calls. Also Billups bated the pu$$# ass ref (Mauer) into calling it, yet when the Pistons scream at the refs they don't even pay attention.

I was just reading the past 10 pages after finishing the game, and all I can is, what is wrong with some of you? So ready to throw people under the bus. And the game wasn't even over yet. Ridiculous stuff guys. :lol:

I'm glad we pulled it out, granted it should have been an easier finish, but still.. a win is a win.

cmon you cant be happy with blowing that lead.


No, that point I do agree with, but we are ONE win away from the finals. :clap: As ugly as it was down the stretch, the facts are the facts. For a first year team you HAVE to be satisfied with where we are. Understand, Detroit is a veteran team that's been together for quite a while. SIX STRAIGHT YEARS in the Conference finals and we are on the brink of eliminating them in really our FIRST full year together. You cant tell me you are not impressed with that. We are learning every single game in these playoffs. Tough win, easy win, seven game series.....its all a learning experience. THAT is my point.
