Series Tied 1-1

After a dismal performance by the Detroit Pistons, the Eastern Conference Finals is now tied 1-1. The Pistons played a horrible game two but they were still in the game until the end. The Pistons took the lead in the second half but the Heat came back strong in the end to win 92-86.

Rip Hamilton had another horrible game. He looked slow and he could not hit his mid-range jumper. I know he has a leg injury but he needs to step up his game.

Incredibly, Ben Wallace also had a bad game. He could not score like he did in game one. His shot was blocked three times. Even his defense looked a lot worse than normal. The Pistons rely on Wallace heavily for his defense and he must step up his game as well.

Although the Pistons played bad, they still probably would have won if it was not for Dwyane Wade's amazing performance. He scored 40 points for the Heat. He was unstoppable the entire game. He finished the game with a dunk to end any chance of a comeback bid for Detroit.

The series now shifts back to Detroit for game three and four. The Pistons won one of two in Miami and now the Pistons need to take care of business at home. I think the Pistons will be much more focused in game three and win to take the 2-1 series lead.
