Detroit Pistons proved why they ought to be the main challengers for this year's NBA Play-offs title. They beat Chicago Bulls in game 6 of their Eastern conference semi-final clash at Chicago's home-court.
Richard Hamilton looking lethal without his mask this time round ,led four Pistons players in double figures with 23 points and other guard Chauncey Billups added 21 and seven assists. Tayshaun Prince scored 17 with nine rebounds and Rasheed Wallace had 16 points and 13 rebounds.
Chauncey Billups, one of Detroit's lethal ammo said that, 'there was some eerie silence' at the arena after the game. What would you expect for a team that last won the Play-offs in 1998. No offence but I guess they had stretched their luck too far !
High chests (like Bryant's to the Laker's team-mates !) for the team effort. This shows why the Pistons are like the complete team in NBA. No flashy players, no stars and big egos and most of all what really counts is the Championship ring !
