Tale of Two Halfs

The Nets had their game going in the first half, building a twelve point lead going into the break. The Pistons then did what in Game 1, blowing out New Jersey by a score of 61-34 in the second half to take a 2-0 series lead. Chauncey Billups and Richard Hamilton each finished with 28 points for Detroit, while Richard Jefferson and Kenyon Martin each finished with 19 for the Nets. New Jersey will look to turn things around Sunday night as the series heads to the Meadowlands.
