I’ll take a number six, to go…

New, comments

No, I didn't just order a Chicken McNugget Extra Value Meal from McDonalds, I was simply reflecting on Detroit's past success in Game 6's the past four years. Consider this while pondering who's going to win tonight's game:

  • Detroit is 11-2 in elimination games dating back to the 2003 playoffs...
  • ... including going 8-0 in Game 6's...
  • ... with six of those games being played on the road...
  • ... and five coming after initially trailing in a series 3-2.

Maybe now you can understand why Lindsey Hunter is so excited...

"Man, this is going to be fun," Hunter said. "I love game sixes."

... and confident:

"We're gonna go take that Game 6," Hunter said. "We're not going to steal it, we're gonna go take that Game 6."

So, what do you call a "guran-sheed" when it comes from Hunter and not Rasheed Wallace? Any ideas?
