If the refs keep calling it as lopsidedly as last night, definitely. The Pistons got so many calls.

Is it just me, or were the refs absolutely determined to give game 7 to San Antonio? I mean, it didn't work, but I felt like the poor Mavs were on the wrong side of a lot of calls (mostly non-calls on Duncan). And I say this as someone who kind of wanted the Spurs to win it. Anyway, yeah, Detroit/Miami. Detroit won't be that atrocious from the field forever. I think it'll go to seven. BUT, Detroit still just looks so sluggish and half-assed out there. The shots aren't dropping, and with the exception of Game 7, the Detroit we know hasn't shown up since Game 2 against the Cavs. It's strange. I picked them to win the whole thing on the basis of their regular-season play combined with what I assumed would be a burning desire to win after what must have been a pretty tough loss last year, but that fire I thought they'd be playing with seems to be guttering.... I don't know, they look kind of complacent. I think I'm picking the Heat in 7, and not really on the basis last night's game, either. I'll give Detroit one bad game, it happens, but they still haven't convinced me that they really want it this year.

I agree about the Spurs in Game 7, but one of the games in Dallas (can't remember now which one) was the same way in the favor of the Mavs.

The Spurs shot themselves in the foot, blowing it before both overtime games. Duncan should have gone to the hoop the first time, and Parker should have gone more quickly in 7, to give Duncan a better chance at a rebound.

Heat in 6.

Have no opinion on Mavs/Suns...

Both road teams won game 1; this should be very entertaining.

Yeah, so apparently I gave the Pistons too much credit.

Also: DWYANE WADE. Holy Mother of God. I mean, we all knew he was amazing, but he's shooting about 70% for the SERIES against Detroit. This is ridiculous. And that highlight from last night--you know the one I'm talking about--was absolutely unreal. I think I broke my "instant replay" button on my TiVo remote. I watched it like ten times.

Also, props to Dallas, as well. Their transition defense has been great. Opinions on Avery's using Diop against the Suns? From what I can see, it certainly seems to be working, but some commentators (Barkley, among others) seem to think that despite the numbers, Phoenix can abuse his presence. I dunno, he seems strong to me so far.

On a style note- who's that dude who keeps wearing the atrocious Pancaldi ties with purple and orange sportcoats, and equally outrageous pocket squares?

Sideline reporter...

I'm drawing a blank on his name, but yeah, he always looks like that. I almost admire it. I mean, it takes real dedication to dress that badly, day in, day out.

Craig Sager - and yes his clothes are awful...

But not as bad as my Suns have played the last two games

Looks Like Miami is about to apply the pedal to the metal and overheat the Pistons.

I was trying to figure out where to get an orange tie like Mike D'Antoni's because I have to attend a dinner on Saturday June 10th, when my Suns may be playing in Game 2 of the NBA Finals, and while looking for that information, I ran across this article.
