Jameer Nelson Is a Seer

Or so he seems to think.

We said in this space yesterday that while the Magic will be returning to Orlando after Game 5 in Detroit on Tuesday, the Pistons likely will not be.

According to Jameer Nelson, such is not the case.

As reported by ESPN:

"We're going to make some adjustments and we're going to win this game," Nelson said after Orlando's 90-89 loss on Saturday. "I'm not being arrogant or cocky or anything like that. I think [Saturday] we let it slip out of our hands. Game 2 we let it slip out of our hands. We're going to win this game in Detroit."

Seems questionable at best.

Nelson has been his usual average self throughout this series, and he went for a wonderfully earth-shattering 15 points and 6 assists on 6-for-14 shooting in Game 4 against Rodney Stuckey while Detroit leader Chauncey Billups was sidelined with a sore hamstring.

As Nelson notes, the Magic lost that game.

The Pistons have homecourt back in Game 5 for sure.  They may have Billups back, too.  And they certainly seemed to have their swagger back at the end of a 90-89 victory on Saturday.

I continue to not understand the need for popping off like this.
