Even with Sheed's 5 fouls and 1 technical he still rocked the socks off of the Bulls! So sorry charlie, no Jordan, no win!

No NBA team has lost a best-of-seven series after taking a 3-0 lead, and the Pistons rejected the Bulls' shot at history. Now, Detroit can focus on its fifth straight conference final.

Down 48-43 at halftime, the Pistons outscored the Bulls 31-21 in the third quarter to take a 74-69 lead, and Chicago could not sustain any momentum in the fourth.

Rasheed Wallace had 16 points and 13 rebounds for Detroit, while Tayshaun Prince added 17 points and nine rebounds. Chauncey Billups was just 3for12 from the field but he scored 11 of his 21 points in the third quarter. A jumper by Wallace, who had received a technical foul just over a minute earlier, and a hook shot by Prince made it 85-73 with 2:20 left, and Detroit hung on from there.
