The Detroit Pistons beat the Cleveland Cavs 113-86 and take a 1-0 series lead. The Pistons dominated the Cavs on both ends and played great defense. Chauncey Billups got 14 points and 10 assists in 31 minutes. Billups was great and got the team involved which is great. Tayshaun Prince got 24 points and 3 boards in 32 minutes. Prince has to go out and put points on the board and just focus on scoring. Richard Hamilton got 24 points and 3 assists in 34 minutes. Hamilton was good but he has to try and be more of a play maker if you ask me. Antonio McDyess got 12 points and 3 blocks in 22 minutes. McDyess was terrific off the bench and he's looking the old McDyess a little. LeBron James got 22 points and 4 assists on 34 minutes. LJ got no help from his team with only 2 other players in double figures. Zydrunas Ilgauskas got 14 points and 5 boards in 25 minutes. Z needs a couple more looks inside and shot more than 14 times. Anderson Varejao got 11 points and 8 boards in 21 minutes. Varejao off the bench brings energy just like a Ronny Turiaf in LA which get everyone going.
