Prince might cut his own minutes

Tayshaun Prince is still limited by a sore back and might play reduced minutes in game three, according to Chris McCosky of the Detroit News.

"I will give whatever I can give," he said. "It felt better today (Thursday), but at the same time, I didn’t go at game speed. I am not the type of person to give excuses about injuries because I know both Rasheed and Rip (Hamilton) played hurt for us this season.

"But this is the pivotal game, so if I am not getting anything going early, I will let Arron (Afflalo) and those guys take the load."
