The Pistons may not have any defensive tricks up their sleeves for Game 2, but they are going to have a different plan. In Game 1, coach Michael Curry didn't want to send a double team at LeBron James right away. He wanted his defenders to read James and blitz after he makes his initial move. The result of that was confusion, late rotations and a whole lot of driving lanes for James. "When you try to make guys read situations, it creates some of those problems at times," Curry said. "But you can't just go and double LeBron. He's not always looking to attack right away. He will wait until the double team comes and then make his play. "We didn't want to send the double team until he put it on the floor or our defender got into a bad situation."
From the way he was talking Sunday, though, Curry still doesn't feel comfortable blitzing James right away. "We will move some different guys on him," Curry said. "And when we do double him, I think it's better to have a guard on him. That way Tay can be on the weak side and with his length, he's a much more active weak-side defender. "We are going put some guards on him (Hamilton, Rodney Stuckey, Arron Afflalo) and be more decisive on when to trap. If we are going to trap, then we're trapping. If we aren't, then we aren't."
