We are loving life here in Boston right now, aren't we? Our Celtics came out to a big lead over the Pistons… held off their runs… and did a lot of things right in a fairly comfortable win. Was anyone really ever nervous at all during this game? I wasn't. This looked like a regular season game out there. Which means…
This is a trap.
Haven't we seen this from the Pistons before? How about them losing their first playoff game… at HOME… to Philly? How about them getting blown out by 20 in game 3 of that series?
Nice try Rasheed. You almost had me fooled there Jason Maxiell. But I'm not falling for this crap. I know that all you Pistons cared about was coming in and stealing 1 game in Boston… so you kinda cruised through things… made a couple of pushes to see if the C's would respond… and packed it in at the end.
The Pistons have made a habit of putting it in cruise control and then turning it on at certain times. Hell, at this point, it's almost a trademark. If the Celtics fall for it and come out flat in Game 2… then we're going to be climbing out of a big-time hole. I know the guys are a little tired after playing more games this postseason than any other team… but they've got to come out and PUSH tomorrow night. Paul Pierce said Game 1 was going to be the game Detroit tried to steal… I disagree. It's Game 2 that they want… and if we're not careful… they'll get it.
