As we were saying, Detroit needs Chauncey "Big Shot" Billups to step up. His scoring could make a difference this series especially when Jason Williams can't take Chauncey's strength and ability to post up. As we have seen in the playoffs before, Chauncey usually plays well and hits big shots (how he got his name) and making a huge difference yet so far this playoffs he has only had one 30 point game which was game four at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee and has only had one double double which was against the Cavaliers, game one at the Palace of Auburn Hills in Detroit. Chauncey was a possible MVP candidate this season and so far it wouldn't show if you had just been watching the playoffs. Detroit need him to step up.AUBURN HILLS -- Sing it all together now
