His block on Miller in game 3 was just amazing, while his stuff on Oneal last night took the air out of the Pacers. The guy may not be a bigtime scorer or a cagey veteran, but Teyshawn saved the Pistons on more than one occasion this yr.
Anyway - for those of you who think the Lakers will roll over the Pistons, you've got a suprise comming. Im not saying the Pistons will win the Championship, but we will give them a better series than Minnesota did - thats for sure.
Sorry for quoting myself, but once again - how huge has Teyshawn been once again? I know its a team effort, and the Pistons are collapsing the lane to stop Kobe from driving, but 80% of the time its Tey v Kobe when Kobe has the ball. Prince is the man - his contributions on D and key moments in a game are immeasurable. Kobe has been reduced to whining and the comparisons to Jordan were quickly put to rest after running into the Prince!
There is no reason to think the Lakers will win tonight - the Pistons have dominated every aspect of this matchup. Who would have guessed Pistons in 5 - and it should have been a sweep!
