We hope the Auburn Hills Pistons enjoyed home court advantage… for all of 1 game. The Celtics came out hot… withstood runs… and ended all the talk about "they can't win on the road" by beating the Pistons 94-80.
And shocker of shockers… it was agressive play that got the job done. Kendrick Perkins showed up with 12 and 10… Rajon Rondo took, and knocked down, a few shots. Ray Allen was 5-16… but he had 6 boards and 6 assists. And Paul Pierce only took 6 shots. SIX shots. We'd also like to welcome James Posey (12 pts, 4 reb) to the series. Oh… and KG had 22 pts, 13 reb, 6 asst.
So we've had the haters say Pistons in 4…. then in 5 (with the vaunted '5 game sweep')… now it's gonna be what… a 6 game sweep?
Let me ask you this: Other than the sun rising and setting… is there ANYTHING more predictable than a Pistons mail-in game after a big win?
