    It is obvious the Spurs fed off the crowd in games 1 and 2. With the next couple in Detroit, the Pistons should be able to do the same thing. If SA is good enough to win 3 in a row, so are the Pistons. We have the them right where we want them. We can't plan any worse and they cann't play any better. Detroit plays best with their backs to the wall. I feel confident in a Game 3 victory for Detroit tonight.

    The NBA is super anal about both radio and TV broadcast rights. Â If you can't find it locally or on cable, it's pretty unlikely you'll be able to find an internet feed of it.
    I have found it on the net.
    Really? Â Could you give me the URL?

    They won game 3, but not with the ease that SA won the first two games. I don't think Detroit can win all three of their home games. I think that if the series goes back to SA, it will go back with Detroit still trailing.

    It doesn't matter how many you win by as long as you win. Winning by 1 0r 25 is the same. The same goes for losing a game. Losing by 1 or 20 is still a loss. They don't count how many you win by, but by how many games you win.

    Of course that's true. I'm saying the apparent ease with which SA dispatched Detroit in the first two games leads me to that SA is far more likely to win road games in this series than Detroit.

    Two items - did anyone see the jacket on "Hit Man" Hearns? It looks like the horizontals don't match up.

    And on Al Michaels, check out the difference between the color of his hands, and the color of his face.

    Larry Brown has been wearing brown shoes with black pants.

    How injured is Ginolbli? All I heard is that he got injured at the very beginning of game 3. Was it even that serious?

    I haven't watched a game of the Finals, but from what I have read, it sounds like the least competitive, competitive series ever.  Four blowouts by the home team.

    The winner of game 5 will win the series I think.

    I agree. People here in SA are totally bummed.

    People in Detroit are excited after that Game 4 blow out. I just hope we can get a close game or two in this series.

    My main man Tayshaun was throwin' it down in Game 4. It's rare to see a finals game that lopsided--*ouch*.

    I think the Pistons squeak out a Game 5, SA wins Game 6 at home with their backs against the wall, which leads to a decisive Game 7. My prediction: Pistons win that one in double digits and repeat as champs.

    Go Detroit.

    (As a consolation, Nazr will get a ring if SA wins.)

    AlanC you sound like a true Pistons fan. Are you from the Detroit area?

    No, I confess I'm only a collateral Pistons fan. I'm a Tayshaun fan from his days at UK. (Which is why I'd be glad if Nazr gets a ring at SA.) I do like the guys on the Pistons pretty well, though. Well, except for Rasheed, but even he seems to have mellowed a bit.

    A tip o' the hat to Detroit for sending us Joe Crawford, btw. I expect some great things from him this coming year now that he seems to be over his "problems". He's almost certain to start.

    No kidding. I wonder what will happen tonight. I say the Spurs still take it in 6 . But seriously, it is the most hot/cold series ever.

    It's entirely possible that the Spurs may win, but I don't see any way they win in 6 at this point. I think the Spurs will show up and play tonight, though. Tonight's game should be close regardless of who wins. If it's not a close game then I'd say it means SA is getting blown out again.
