Default Re: 00s Tournament: North Region

Game 1: Heat 98, at Pistons 89

Box Score:

Player of the Game: S.O’Neal 28pts/12reb on 12/17 FG

Recap: The Heat start out the series strong on the road and take Game 1 away from the Pistons. It was a 1 point game with 2 minutes left but big 3s by J-Will and Posey put away Detroit. Shaq continues to dominate in this tournament run as even the Pistons defense could not stop him. Apart from that the Heat came out with strong defense of their holding Detroit to 40% shooting and forced 20 TOs. Pistons shut down Wade holding him to 6/21 shooting but that will not be enough to beat Miami.

Game 2: at Pistons 101, Heat 92

Box Score:

Player of the Game: B.Wallace 13pts/17reb/3blk

Recap: The Pistons even up the series at 1-1 with a huge win at home. Miami did a good job leading most of the game but Detroit stayed right behind. In the 4th the Pistons took over and controlled the game led by Rip Hamilton who had 14 of his 33 points in the 4th. The Pistons made adjustments and did a good job guarding Shaq holding him to 17 points.

Both teams higher the minutes of their stars
