After putting up a good fight, the Pistons sputtered out and basically handed a victory to Cleveland. Practically everybody on the Pistons (that means you, Rip Hamilton) seemed out of character, taking bad shots and playing lousy defense.
However, the glimmer of hope was up-and-coming guard Rodney Stuckey.
Mo Williams didn't stand a chance. The 6'5", 205 pound combo guard was an absolute bully, driving, shooting, and, in a word, discombobulating Mo Williams. Williams was held to 12 points on 35 percent shooting, well below his regular season averages of 17 points and 46 percent shooting.
Meanwhile, Stuckey posted a team high 20 points and got many of his points in the paint.
If the Pistons contain Lebron better, and run more plays through Stuckey, the Pistons have a better shot at taking the series away.
