It was a home-at-home and the expansion team beats the champs for the first time since 1970 (according to the broadcasters).
Unfortunately, I only say the last 5:00 of this game but all I know is the Cats were up by 20 at one point, and the Pistons stormed back but the Cats were able to do something they haven't done yet this year - close the game out. This team really isn't that bad.
Brevin Knight, the 5'10" journeyman, with 19 assists. It did help that Emeka Okafor and Gerald Wallace were both hot. Yeah. Gerald Wallace's jumper was falling consistently - no lie.
Also, I think people are going to have to watch out for Primoz Brezec (Cats center, #7) since he might win Most Improved Player this year.
Didn't see this game, but I had the mis-pleasure to witness the Celtics jump to an early double digit lead to the other brawl team in Indiana, only to lose by double digits to a team without possibly its five best players. Atlantic Division Basketball Fever: Catch it, or catch maleria, because maleria probably is more enjoyable.
Still waiting patiently for Game 8 of the Red Sox/Yankee series.
