The Pistons got a little cocky after Game 3, when they took two quarters off, and then still managed to rout the Bulls. They tried the same routine today, but extended it to three quarters, even going so far as to put up a 13-point third quarter and go down by 20. But they couldn't make quite enough magic happen in the fourth.

So we go back to Detroit for a Game 5, something the Pistons were hoping to avoid. The Bulls shot and rebounded much better this time out ... though it would've been difficult to get much worse. Luol Deng had 25 and 13, and Ben Wallace finished with a masculine 11 and 17.

And then tonight, back on TNT, where I'd like to up it to about 80 games in 40 nights, it's Warriors vs. Jazz, Game 4. If things don't go well for the Dubs, it could be the last game in Oracle Arena ... which would be sort of sad. Not that I'm writing off the Warriors or anything, but I'm going to be sure to soak in as much of this as possible.
