Shaq needs to get the ball more, get a lot more rebounds, and help out on the pick-and-roll. He's got to dominate, no one on the Pistons can guard him.
I agree. One problem is when Shaq did get the ball, he got horrible position, most of the passes were very bad. They gave it to his wrong hand, where Big Ben was ready to steal it or they gave it to him out of position, so he had to force a jump hook and couldn't back down. That is something they have to work on. I suggest have Luke on the court for every minute Shaq is, that way he is ensured to get a good pass.

Get Fox in there, he may not shoot worth a damn due to his injury, but he'll get the ball in there.
If I was Phil:
- Malone/Walton/Slava (no order, although I would like to see Malone sit)
Get your veterans in there, put Payton on the bench, that should be enough for him to come off and give us a good game. We need the experience at this point...
It's war now, BLOODY SUNDAY.
