The Cavaliers showed how impressive they can be. LeBron led the Cavs with 38 pts, 8 rebs, and 7 asts, but he also got balance from the rest of his team as they beat the Pistons. Delonte West, Mo Williams, and Zydrunas Ilgauskas all chipped in with 12 points. The Cavaliers won this game by taking the ball to the rack. They attempted 27 free throws (making 23). It wasn't pretty, but it was a win.
The Pistons didn't show up and basically after LeBron hit that 3 pointer from half court prior to halftime, the game was over. Rodney Stuckey led the Pistons with 20 pts and 4 asts, but outside of that, not too much help from anyone else. Rip had 15, Rasheed had 13, and McDyess had 10. How do you explain that the only big from Detroit that even attempted a free throw was Kwame Brown (1 of 2 from the line). Seems like the Piston bigs enjoyed shooting jumpers all day long. I guess they can blame this one on Iverson too?
- Can someone please find Tayshaun Prince? He has been a ghost as of late and the Pistons need him in order to give the Cavs a run for their money.
- Curry has got to go to his bench a little more, especially if the starters aren't getting the job done. I expect him to play Maxiell, Johnson, and Herrmann more in game #2.
The Cavs seem to be on their way to sweeping the Pistons. Joe Dumars should already be starting to revamp this team over the summer.
Are the Pistons done? Are the Cavs the juggernaut that we thought they'd be? Is this series over? When are the Bad Boys coming back?
