Pistons stop LeBron

by Dan Bilicki In: Basketball

The Pistons held true to their word and stifled King LeBron last night in their game one victory. James only managed 10 points — a playoff low— on 5-for-15 shooting. He almost managed a triple-double though and could’ve had it on a play that would’ve tied the game with seconds left.

LeBron drove with time winding down before being swarmed when he dished the ball outside to a wide open Donyell Marshall who proceeded to miss the 3-point attempt. It would’ve giving him his tenth assist to go with his 10 points and rebounds.

With the game that close, it’s fairly safe to say that even with all the pressure on the global icon, his team can still play put up a good game against an incredibly tough team. This series could very well be longer than anyone expected.
