No need for "after the jumps"....we're going straight through with no timestamps. Let's do this....
5 minutes left....WAR! Cleveland gets the ball on the tip.....
Wow....crap foul on Prince, and Lebron goes to the line. He hits both ant it's 93-91 Cavs. Sheed fouled at the other end, and he hits both. Tied again. A Pavlovic charge gives the ball back to the Pistons.
Great call by the refs as Prince was shoved in the back by James. Rip hits the jumper and Detroit is up two. BACKDOOR TO JAMES! FLUSH!!! He is on fire. Wallace is fouled and he'll go to the line with the score tied.
Gooden has fouled out, and Sheed misses the first. Varejao replaces him, and Sheed hits the second....3 minutes left.
1 point lead for the Pistons. Lebron is fouled pretty hard, and Doug Collins does a great job of mentioning his first technical. James hits the first, and MISSES THE SECOND! He's killing them with the missed free throws. Sheed on the block misses a turnaround, but C-Webb gets the O-board.....Sheed misses a three.
96-96 with 2 left.....
Lebron misses a jumper with every person in the Detroit zipcode in the lane. Pistons can't capitalize and everyone looks dead tired.
Still tied.....1:37 to go.
Cleveland ball. Dumb pass by Lebron to a cutting Varejao, and he gets lucky as Detroit hits it out of bounds. Timeout Cavs as they can't inbounds the ball. 11 on the shot clock....
And Billups gets pushed....no call. Lebron goes into the lane....and basically flops. Horrible call. Lebron hits both. 98-96, 1:15 left.
PRINCE THROWS IT AWAY! Oh man....that was bad. He was just in a terrible spot, and threw it into the backcourt.
CAVS Ball and a two point lead.....DAGGER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LEBRON Nails the jumper at the shot clock's buzzer.....(I'm slowly shrinking down right about now). That was cold-blooded!
33.7 Secs left to go, and I'm stunned. Sheed draws a foul, and heads to the line. He hits both and the Pistons need a dire stop. Timeout.
100-98....exactly 30 seconds to go. Cleveland uses their last timeout. Doug Collins thinks the T.O. is a bad move, and I agree.
Lebron gets the ball up top.....fadeaway jumper!!!!!!!! Airball....wow. That was a terrible shot. Why do you call timeout to run that play???
6.6 secs left.....inbounds to Billups. He drives....and.....a foul!!!!!!!!! And that Mike Brown timeout is absolutely ridiculous if Billups hits both...they can't advance the ball!!!!!!!!!!!
Billups of course hits both, and with 3.1 left Cleveland inbounds......
Snow from center court!!! Not even close......HOLY CRAP....
One more thread should do it....join me over there Sam and OMDQ.
