Pistons-Celtics as a boxing match

New, comments

Wait, maybe the Pistons actually won on Wednesday? I don't pretend to understand this, but here's Mike Moreau of HOOPSWORLD: This is why I scored the fight/game last night as a boxing judge, splitting the game into twelve rounds of four minutes (three rounds per quarter.) With a "10 Point Must System" in effect (whoever wins the round gets 10 points, loser gets 9 – or 8 if there is a knockdown or total domination in that round.) According to my scorecard, Boston won only five rounds – the first, the fifth, the seventh, the tenth and the twelfth. I had Detroit winning seven rounds – the second, third, fourth, sixth, eighth, ninth and eleventh.
