The Detroit Pistons once again showed their toughness last night, winning game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The Miami Heat still hold a lead in the series at 3-2, but the pressure is now on them to win game 6 on their home court. Everyone knows the Miami doesn’t want to end up in a game 7 back at the Palace of Auburn Hills. Detroit doesn’t lose in those types of games at home.
Last night was the first time in a couple of weeks where the Pistons actually looked like the same team that went 64-18 in the regular season. If the Pistons came play with the same intensity they did last night and Rasheed Wallace can show up for a game I like our chances on Friday night. Don’t count this team out just yet.
