Bad coaching

In 7 years in Minnesota Flip Saunders never advanced past the first round, and he claimed that he always went up against better teams. After watching tonight's game I think he might not be a good coach.

Where was Rasheed Wallace for the last half of the fouth quarter? He picked up his 5th foul, and got a tech and then he sat for teh rest of teh game. The Pistons could have used offense late in teh game. What were they trying top save him for? OT?? If I was the coach I would try and get him in for every offensive possesion late in teh game. Ben Wallace isn't helping anything on teh offensive side of the ball. He missed 7 free throws, and two HUUUUGE ones in the last few minutes. Sheed should have certinaly been in the game for the 2nd to last play, coming out of a timeout, with the Cavs two big men already fouled out. They could have fed Sheed in the paint and lived with that. Instead they tried to drive into a crowded paint, and didnt even got a shot to reach the hoop.

I still believe that the Pistons will win this series, but they need Flip to do a better job coaching this team.

Get used to it. The pistons are overrated and don't deserve to be there.

Jack - I think it's tough to call as dominant as the Pistons have been overrated. If they lose this series, I would agreethat they choked ever worse then your lakers blowing a 3-1 series lead. BTW Kobe looked good as a playoff analyst. He should get used to that position in the yearsto come.

OC - I still believe that the Pistons experience will pull them through the series. As they say, this is why they play the games.

I know, but it just seems as though they've thrown these past 2 games away. It's sickening. I wasn't even going to get into the playoffs until the Pistons made it to the Conference Finals. It just seemed like it was going to be that easy. They're in trouble. The Cavs have all the momentum going their way. The Pistons are really going to have to make a strong statement in game 6 to get this thing turned around.
