Oh, the torment!

The anguish! To see the Pistons play like they did last night (sort of like they did all season...), yet to still be facing elimination going back to Miami. I had hoped they'd just lose, get it over with and put us out of our misery. After all, we haven't seen the real Pistons play in so long. But then they have to show up and have a great game like that --their defense returns, (Did anyone see Ben Wallace's block on Shaq? Wow.), they win decisively with their top scorers still not putting up the numbers they should be.

Mitch Album sums it up nicely--

Now, to be honest, if you're a Pistons fan, you're torn this morning between being glad and mad. You're happy the team is still alive in these Eastern Conference finals, but you believe if it had played like this in any of those losses, it wouldn't have been on the brink of elimination in the first place.

Well, if any team can come back from a 3-1 deficit against a team as good as Miami, the Pistons could. See, there I go again getting all hopeful...
