Detroit Pistons Forward Rasheed Wallace Guarantees a Game 4 Victory
Rasheed Wallace must drive Detroit Piston fans crazy. After a no-show performance in Game 3, Rasheed Wallace has guaranteed a game four victory. Rasheed states that Game 4 will be the last game in Quicken Loans Arena (Man, I hate the name of this venue) this season by winning tomorrow night and closing out the series in Game 5 in Detroit. Bold words by a guy who scored only 11 points and shot 3-11 on Saturday afternoon. Not only did he shoot badly, but he was letting Anderson Varejao get in his head. Anderson Varejao! Varejao is a high energy bench player like Eduardo Najera or a Jerome “Junk Yard Dog” Williams; he shouldn’t be getting the better of an all-star caliber player like Rasheed Wallace. Towards the end of the game, Detroit was still in the game, and you could see Chauncey Billups and Richard Hamilton as the only players that were willing to take a shot towards the end of the game. Hamilton was running around the court trying to get free, like he was on his last bar on Boost Mobile power, not receiving any picks along the baseline. Not only that, Rasheed was just standing in the way, not setting a pick for Billups or posting up. I could imagine Billups going nuts in his head during the fourth quarter, I mean, he’s not going to pass to Ben Wallace for offense, and Tayshaun Prince can’t create for himself unless it’s on a fast break. Tonight it’s put up or shut up time for Rasheed Wallace.
