Lebron might just be biting bones by the time this series is over. If you missed the explanation of why Lebron always bites his nails it's just a bad habit as any nail biter will attest. I'm a nail biter but watching him bite it as much as he does makes me cringe. There's only so much nail you can bite off before you get to the nerves and then it hurts like hell.
The Detroit Pistons played with a little chip on their shoulder. Chauncey Billups was upset that most of their first round games were on NBA TV and now they're all on major networks. He knows it's because of the Lebron show. Whatever gets them fired up because it worked today. Not only did they shut down Lebron and the Cavs but they scored like the Phoenix Suns today.
I don't see why they can't keep this intensity up. If so it could be a clean sweep and leave Lebron with a long off season to grow some nails back.
In what looked more like the Western Conference finals provided more drama then the Pistons/Cavs game. Dallas has never won a series against San Antonio in the playoffs. No matter how much Mark Cuban is worth he can't buy a series win against them. Dallas had a great chance today leading at halftime and most of the game. Usually known for their scoring offense, they went cold from the field in the last four minutes. Then Jerry Stackhouse had a chance to tie the game but remembered he's Jerry Stackhouse. He attempted a three pointer with time winding down. A questionable decision when Ginobli was in his face and all they needed was a two.
