Pistons beat Magic!

The Pistons beat the Magic 90-89 to take a 3-1 series lead. I think that the Magic went too quick on the last play of the game. Hedo held the ball for a few seconds and didn't leave the Magic enough time to extend the game. I would have liked to see a quick shot, maybe a lob to Howard. He could have dunked it quickly and left time for the Magic to D them up.

Defensive rebounding needs to be consistent for 48 minutes if you're Orlando. They let the Pistons get second opportunities that led to Pistons points. Orlando was already told by coach Van Gundy, but obviously that wasn't enough. Dwight Howard needs to take a leadership role and tell his guys to box out on defense.

Detroit will win this series, but I think it will take two more games. Orlando has a real chance to win the whole series, they have the drive. Piston fans need to get really fired up if Detroit wants a chance to close them out. This game will be close and Detroit will have a shot at winning.
