No sweep for the Pistons

Detroit Pistons vs Cleveland Cavaliers : Pistons lead 2-1.

Ok. No sweep for the Pistons. Frankly I expected one and as usual I was wrong.

One reason, of course is, LeBron James took over down the stretch and that's what great players do. And somewhere I know Kobe is watching.

James was the difference between the two teams in the fourth quarter when he scored 15 of his 21 points. For the record, the Detorit guards Chauncey and Rip combined for 6 points in the fourth. That should tell you the story pretty much.

After going through the stat sheet, I found something more amazing than LeBron and his triple double. Cavaliers shot 50% and Detroit, not so impressive 39.4%.

This season, the Pistons are enjoying more freedom in their offense with Larry no longer barking from the sidelines, but they still win games on defense.

The D wasn't there last night. At least not when it mattered most.

The Pistons are going to win anyway but now they have something to think about.

San Antonio Spurs vs Dallas Mavericks : Mavericks lead 2-1.

Except for game 2, the first and the third were decided by a combined 3 points!!!

However there is something alarming for the Spurs. Tim Duncan answered all questions surrounding his mobility by averaging 31.3 points and 11.3 rebounds in the first three games and yet the Spurs have fallen behind.
