Anyone watching this game?

Sheed got another technical, which the announcers are saying means a suspension for game 6?

Bron-Bron just nearly airballed a free throw, in a three-point game with two minutes left. Not clutch, not clutch!

They later corrected themselves. Maybe.

Wow. Pistons running uphill now. Interesting stuff. I admire the headiness of Snow's move in the last seconds, but I wish he'd had a second less on the clock when he did it.

But, hey, at least he showed SOME sense of endgame strategy, which is more than most players do these days, so I will give him credit. Great play.

Detroit doesn't look good. No, it's really nothing that the Cavs are doing. They just don't look good.

Me neither... Cavs are not the better team. I'm chalking this up as Detroit underestimating its opponent.

Wow, I think Flip's gotta take some blame for this. I mean, the Wizards took apart the Cav's suspect defense in the first round, and the Pistons can only score 84, 72 and 77 in the last three games?!

And Flip has the 2nd worse road playoff W-L record in the history of the NBA.

I think the Pistons are done.

Of course not ... only 3 and 4.

I still think the Pistons will win the series, but losing the three games was definetly a result of overconfidence.

The Cavs' PA system plays the funeral "dong" -- usually played in Detroit when Ben Wallace scores or grabs a reboud -- every time Ben misses a free throw.

Priceless...

If this pistons lose it will have to be one of the biggest upsets in sports history.

Detroit was favored to win the title before the season even started and they were getting close to 70 wins at one point.

I'd put the Nuggets upset of the Sonics all those years ago ahead of this... but this one would rank right up there with the most suprising upsets in an NBA playoff series that I can remember.

I always thought that "dong" was supposed to mimic the bell tower in Big Ben, which is Ben Wallace's nickname.

Detroit was favored to win the title before the season even started and they were getting close to 70 wins at one point.Just a week ago they were one to two to win it all. Not two to one. One to two. Bet two to win one. Now THAT is favored, considering they had two-and-a-half series yet to win.

GO CAVS!!!

Unbelievable. Two missed shots, two missed free throws, and the Pistons still have the ball. Unbelievable.

Pretty dumb execution there, especially with a timeout left. Amazing.

Down three, James rebounds a missed free throw by Billups. 8 seconds left. Dribbles it up, goes past the three-point line, and gets fouled passing to a guy in the corner. Goodness gracious. 1.4 left now, and no chance for the Cavs except to rebound a free throw.

Yeah.. the Pistons' PA plays it when he does something good, and the Cavs mocked it by playing it when he messed up. Pretty good stuff.

Only a two point game at halftime.

Surprsingly the Cavs could actually do this!

Props to the Cavs. They took the best team in the NBA to a game 7 series. Lebron is as good as advertised. Lebron may end up having the best career from any player in league history. Being that he's 21 i'm sure he will. As a Mavs fan I must say i'm happy that the Cavs didn't sign Michael Redd.

With Lebron at the helm, the future certainly looks bright for the Cavs, although I must say that at this point the acquisition of Larry Hughes looks like money down the drain. It will be interesting to see if he can avoid injury and work into the second fiddle role that he was supposed to fill this season next season. Cavs didn't win a game in which he played against the Pistons.

Yeah, the Cavs are going to be a very good team once Leborn gets some help.

Ahh mann come on LeBrons' got help...think of some of the players he got with him. Hughes, Jones, Ilguaskis(spellin)(good center), Snow, Gooden.
I mean how many more player that are good do we have thn thm...not many maybe 1...Soo i just hate whn people start talking about players like LeBron not having support. Hes got just as much support as Dirk.

But they will b a good team..i still say tht LeBron doesnt win a Ring in his career..at least not in Cleveland

Hughes was hurt a lot, and Illgauskis is the only other good player on the Cavs. The rest of those guys don't give Lebron much help. Dallas with out Dirk is lots better than Cavs without Lebron.

I also think Lebron will win a ring sometime in his career.

If the future of the NBA is LeBron James, I sense that my interest will be waning.

Only 23 second half points for the Cavs.. I think it's pretty clear that LeBron needs shooters around him.
