    They started off the season pretty badly, but played well towards the end. Their slow down, defensive style hasn't changed much.

    Pistons beat the Nets 78-56 in game 1 of their series .

    the spurs have ruined their chances to beat the lakers, it seems like the way to do it is to jump on them quickly, but now they are clawing back.

    I agree. I thought the spurs had won when duncan made his fadeaway with shaq guarding him.

    Finally we get to a subject I can talk about - ENGLISH BASKETBALL

    Scoring is tough, but can become routine, and given that the scorers table has more power than coaches realise, they can just bring any abuse to the attention of the referee, and let the floor officials deal with it.

    Many people see the scoring officials just as an employee of the host team, and so when a team is on the road, they always are somewhat suspicious - what they need to realise is that the table officials are match officials in the same way as the floor officials are, and are just as impartial; the fact that they know well the people at the host organization is just a consequence of officiating at that club regularly.

    _Shines_ there are one or two London based teams which could be useful contacts for you:

    The game was at the SBC Center, yeah? Hope the Spurs can win at the Staples Center (not sure when game 6 is though) and go on to win the series.

    Yeah for some reason I seem to like Detroit better than New Jersey. I just really hope that the kings and the spurs win.

    Have you heard that the knicks expect to be really good next year?

    I like the way Detroit plays D, plus I hate Jersey now, lol. I hadn't heard that.. are they planning on doing anything in particular? Even in Detroit loses, I doubt Rasheed Wallace will want to leave.

    No, the players think that they don't need anybody else. They say that they will be good enough if everybody is healthy.

    Oh ok. Could happen I suppose. Sweetney, DerMarr Johnson and Frank Williams need to play and they need to get a backup for Allan Houston (unless his knees don't go again).
