Honestly, I maybe see the Mavs or Spurs taking 2 games MAX out of them.

Those are the only two teams with a legitimate chance of defeating the Pistons.

I see the Pistons beating a worn out Spurs team, but I see Dallas beating the Pistons. Laugh now, but look at their track record against each other. Dallas has a decided edge in recent seasons including a 37 point thrashing earlier in the season where Dallas gave Detroit their first loss. Then Dallas went into Detroit with a severely depleated roster and almost beat them on their own floor. Dallas will also be seasoned by a tough Western Conference playoffs and will come into that series with some serious momentum. If Dallas beats the Spurs, Dallas will take the trophy.

I think Dallas has the youth and athleticism to give the Pistons a better series than the Spurs (even though I love my team) but if they do meet them, its going to be interesting to see if the Mavs can play physical w/ that frontline and it would be a compelling matchup to see Dirk go against Prince.

Dirk has never had any problems playing the Pistons. Josh Howard usually plays well against them, and Dampier plays better against the Pistons than any other team in the league. Damp absolutely dominates the boards against the Pistons. The Mavs' frontline usually dictates their will against Detroit.

Dallas traditionally plays very well against Detroit at home and on the road.

Brand is absolutely destroying the Suns inside.

Kamen has gotten off as well, we are killing them on the boards and with 2nd shots.

85-65. Mid 3rd.

Still the way the Suns can score there is still a long way to go.

Clippers 122 Suns 97 Final.

Brand rapes again.

Good adjustments by Coach Dunleavy in Game 2.

The Suns have no match for the Clips' inside game.

Brand dominating is acceptable, but if kaman plays well too, series is over.

The Clipper defense was the biggest difference in game 2.

They basically played exactly the same offensive game but the 40 or so wide open 3's by the Suns were a thing of the past.

Brand is shooting something like 70% for the series so far.

He'll get his 30/12 every game.

Keep playing tough D . Make Nash into a scorer and guard the 3 point line. I have no problem with them shooting 2 point jump shots. Those shots just wern't falling last night like they were in game one.

Nice to steal home court but it's still a young series.

Not a chance. The Pistons have not even been tested in months. Let the western teams beat each other up while Detroit will finally face a tough series against the Heat or Nets next series. Dallas is solid but they wont get past San Antonio. Neither will have a chance I believe.

I wish Dallas would get by the Spurs, that would mean the NBA wouldn't have to wait another month to hand the trophy to Detroit. Beware what you wish for, Pistons will beat them up in 5.

I have no apprehenision about a Mav matchup with Detroit. Detroit has always been the lesser team when they play each other over the past 4 or 5 seasons. I hear a bunch of unfounded junk about how much better Detroit is than everyone else, but where is the discussion? Personally, I think that detroit would put up a fight, but if Dallas beats SA (who they have much more trouble with historically than Detroit) then Dallas will win a championship.

Dallas destroyed Detroit by 37 this season. That's three short of 40.
That's Varsity v. the Freshman team. They obliterated Detroit from the first whistle of that game.

Dallas isnt afraid of Detroit. I can guarantee that.

I wouldn't put much stock in Detroit losing to Dallas during the second week of the season. Detroit was 8-0 at the point and was due for a let down. Dallas played that game like it was their Super Bowl. In their second meeting Detroit handily beat Mavericks and the score does not show how dominant the Pistons were in that game.

The point is mute because Dallas has about a 10% chance of beating San Antonio this series. They don't have enough toughness to get past the Spurs. As Jerry Stackhouse put it, "I've always thought the Mavericks were a soft team." Hey, can't argue with a guy who plays for the Mavs.
