Detroit vs Orlando, 3-1

Except for the injury to the Pistons’ Chauncey Billups (PG), in the early going of Game 3 … this series is developing pretty much as expected.

Despite the brave assertions of certain players for the Magic, the Southwest Division champions find themselves with their backs firmly planted against the wall for tomorrow’s Game 5 match-up against this Detroit team with, perhaps, the best blend of veterans and contributing youngsters of any squad remaing in the 2008 NBA Playoffs.

While the ‘Series Preview call’ for a Pistons Sweep went by the wayside this past weekend, as it stands right now, things are still well situated for Detroit to become the first team to qualify for the Conference Finals, following tomorrow’s Game 5.

Should the Pistons take care of business at home, as the Celtics become further embroiled in an elongated series with the Cavaliers … Detroit would then be sitting in the catbird’s seat, laying in wait for the Boston/Cleveland winner.

    I see a Pistons “is this series over yet” type performance. Or maybe that’s just me cheering for the underdog, as usual. 🙂

    FLUX,

    Wishful thinking on your part. 🙂

    With significant rest time for Billups’ injury to heal … the winner of the Boston/Cleveland match-up, which is going to 7 games (IMO) … is going to have their hands full with the Detroit.

    This specific group of Pistons is NOT like the other recent versions which have preceded them, and fallen short of reaching the NBA Finals.

    As I’ve said before … the ONLY weak link with this group of Pistons is their head coach, Flip Saunders.

    They will go as far as a HE can take them.
