AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP)—Richard Hamilton slipped into his white Bentley luxury sedan, decked out in Jordan Brand gear from head to flip flops, and chatted for a couple minutes in the Detroit Pistons parking lot.

Hamilton was asked Thursday if he thought the Pistons could beat Cleveland in Game 3.

“We ain’t got a choice,” Hamilton said.

No, they don’t.

Detroit’s streak of advancing to the Eastern Conference finals will essentially be over if it can’t figure out a way to beat LeBron James and the Cavaliers at home on Friday night.

Pistons coach Mike Curry sounds like he expects the series to shift back to Cleveland.

“I fully believe that we’re going to take care of home court and win,” Curry said. “We’ll be sitting in the exact position—1-2—going into Game 4 as it was last year.

I kinda wish Charlotte would have gotten in over detroit, at least they would have cared and tried.

My guess is game 4 is going to be very very ugly in favor of the Cavs I bet.
