    Ya Dude. The Pistons Are Wicked Good

    I don't think it surprises anyone that the Pistons are a good team, but it certainly has surprised me at how good they are. It seems as though everyone that touches the ball for the Pistons is a playmaker. Sure, the Celtics had a better record then the Pistons this year, not by much (Pistons were 59-23 and the Celts were 66-16) and certainly the talent on this Detroit team is even better then their record suggests. So imagine my surprise when we jumped out to a nice early 8 point lead. A cake walk again at home? Well not so fast.

    The first quarter of this game was one of ups and downs. The Celts went on a run, the Pistons went on a run and back and forth we went until the buzzer sounded and the end of half score is Celtics 41 Pistons 40.

    As a side note, this is why Boston is the City of Champions. As we are watching the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals, the commentators are also mentioning how they were at Fenway Park last night for Jon Lester's no-hitter. This stuff doesn't happen in New York or LA. THIS is the City of Champions and we prove it night in and night out. I LOVE IT!

    Back to the game and for me the headline of the half was Ray Allen. No he hasn't lit it up like everyone had hoped tonight, but he has become more agressive. He has taken the ball to the hole and knocked down a few, including a very pretty finger roll down the middle of the lane and Allen has also driven the lane and kicked it out creating for his teamates. I think the media should lay off Ray Allen and let him shoot his way out of this slump. Tonight, you can feel him clawing out of it and mark my words he is going to have a break out game #2 (maybe even in the second half, more on that to come.)
