If you all slept through it then be sure to watch Sportscenter.

AMAZING block by Prince at the end. Watch it 20 times. WOW.

I nearly died laughing....seeing that. Then the announcer says later..."and the play of the game might be right here." What an idiot....play of the century more like it

I hate it when referees almost decide the fate of a game. That ref had NO right calling that double dribble from behind Billips where he couldn't even see the damn ball. The replay clearly showed that he didn't double dribble. So Indiana gets the ball back and gives them the tempo to get right back into it.

But the Pistons won... so I'll shuttup now.

I love Reggie's reaction after getting blocked! :D:D:D

He's lookin' for a foul and there was nothin' but ball on that block.

Yup, that call sticks out in my mind more than any others.

I so agree with this. They were horrible tonight but it was a HARD game to officiate. So many contested shots and stuff. The foul calls on Big Ben in the 1st 1/2 were horrible too. But we won :)

Prince > C. Anthony.

I thought he was looking for goaltending. And it was pretty damn close to coming off the board before Prince got to it.

Not that it matters, the ball should have been flushed, Reggie looked like he was sleepwalking through a layup line with those 3 shuffle steps and the 12" hop.

Guess he was used to getting fouls called his way simply because he is/was a star...It's not like his name is Karl Malone or anything...jeezh

Man, I saw Prince coming in from the edge of the screen and my mind just thought "no fvcking way, he's going to own Reggie"...and BAM. gorgeous.

That block helps my perception of Prince a bit ;)

Close up Shot of Block.

He got there in time. BARELY. It was clean legal block. One of the best ever!

Think Reggie will lose any sleep? hehe The Feeling of Being OWNED!

from a non-Piston/non-Pacer perspective, are these defensive battles fun to watch?

for me, a Pistons's fan, i love 'em. hustle blocks, hitting the floor, taking charges.....all good stuff. sure watching a track meet with the final score in the 120's can be fun, but watching two teams battle for EVERY posession real basketball to me.
