After last night's games two more game 7's have been forced. In the first game the Detroit Pistons beat the Cleveland Cavs 84-82 to tie the series at 3 a piece. In the second game the Spurs beat the Dallas Mavs 91-86 to tie the series at 3. The Cavs were there and almost tied the game and forced OT but now I think the Pistons to take care of bushiness at home. If your the Pistons you're feeling good but can't loose focus at home. Rasheed Wallace got 24 points and 4 assists in 46 minutes. Wallace was hitting the big shots down the stretch and look for him to be a big part of game 7 on Sunday at 3:30 Eastern on ABC. Chauncey Billups got 15 points and 4 steals in 40 minutes. When Billups hit that tough shot leaning into Eric Snow I could tell how much the Pistons needed that game. Tayshaun Prince got 15 points and 8 boards in 48 minutes. Prince surprised me that he went for the whole 48 I think he needs more rest. LeBron James got 32 points and 11 boards in 48 minutes. LJ had 7 turnovers that's a big reason for the Cavs to lose this game. Zydrunas Ilgauskas got 16 points and 6 boards in 27 minutes. Big Z was hitting that jumper which he will have to be affective with in game 7. Drew Gooden got 13 points and 8 boards in 24 minutes. Gooden was doing well early but late sat on the bench if he's your starter you want him on the floor in close games. Game 7 of the Spurs and Mavs will be Monday 7:00 pm eastern on TNT.
