Pistons @ Celtics:
Great game last night in the garden. I said all along that the big three for Detroit (Rip, Mr. Big Shot and Sheed) all needed to have great games to pull out a win in Boston. Well the Pistons got production from all five starters including Stuckey off the bench. The C's are in trouble because I can easily see the Pistons going home and and winning two straight and making this series 3-1 very quickly. Especially with the troubles the Green Team have had on the road. Game 3 will be critical for Boston. It was also good to see Ray Ray break out of his slump with a 25 pt effort last night. I hope for Boston's sake he can keep it going.
Spurs @ Lakers:
Although the Lake show was able to pull the win out at home in game one, I don't think they will get any less of an effort from the Spurs in game two. All the pressure is on L.A. to defend home court because you can best believe the Spurs are very confident that down 2-0 they can go home and win two straight to tie the series up by Tuesday. If this series is 1-1 headed to San Antonio, this series could be 3-1 in favor of the Spurs very quickly.
Enjoy the games this weekend and have a great holiday. Keep it safe.
