Cavaliers vs Pistons Game 1 – Quick Recap

This was a bad game if you are a Pistons fan. Pretty good to be a Cavaliers fan nowadays, huh? LeBron is just playing on another level. He didn’t even break a sweat tonight while destroying the Pistons. Wow. Just…wow.

  • Has anyone ever scored an easier 38 points, grabbed 8 boards and dished out 7 assists? LeBron is just doing whatever he wants and nobody was able to stop him. Detroit has some serious thinking to do til Tuesday.
  • Four other Cavs scored in double figures (team-high by somebody not named LeBron: 13)
  • The Cavaliers looked bored and disinterested at times. Total downer after the crazy Celtics – Bulls Overtime game.

Well, there isn’t much to say about the Pistons. We need to change our game plan. I’m not sure this team is able to do enough to prevent the Cavaliers from scoring…

  • Rodney Stuckey scored a team-high 20 points, but it took him 21 shots to do so. We need to be more efficient than that.
  • Prince was 2/7 from the field, Rip was 6/14 from the field…we need more than that…
  • Sheed showed up tonight and played in the post. He scored 13 points and I hope he will keep up going to his post moves. The Cavs can’t guard him under the basket.

What do we need to improve dramatically?

  • Rebounding. No 2nd chance points for the Cavaliers. We have to crash the boards hard and stop running with them.
  • Free throws. The Cavs shot 27 free throws compared to Detroit’s 12. It is hard to overcome a deficit like that.

Do I still think Detroit can win a game or two? Yeah, I do, I’m a fan…I have to. 🙂
