Detroit Pistons

Team Page | Roster | Stats

Regular Season Record: 39-43
Head-to-Head Record: 1-3
Last NBA Championship: 2004
Last NBA Finals Appearance: 2005
Last Postseason Appearance: 2008
A reason to cheer for the Pistons: In the off-season last year, the Pistons named Michael Curry as their new head coach. In November, the Pistons swapped Chauncey Billups, Antonio McDyess and Cheikh Samb to the Nuggets for Allen Iverson. McDyess was waived by the Nuggets and rejoined Detroit on December 9. The team has been a picture of playoff consistency of late, having made it at least as deep as the conference semi-finals for the last seven seasons, and having made it to the conference finals or championship finals the last six. It should be interesting to see if the new-look Pistons can take it that step farther this post-season. They have a massive obstacle to overcome right off the bat in the mighty Cavaliers, who dominated Detroit this season. It seems unlikely the Pistons could pull it off, but stranger things have happened.

Players to Watch: Richard Hamilton, Allen Iverson, Tayshaun Prince, Rodney Stuckey


Cleveland Cavaliers

Regular Season Record: 66-16
Head-to-Head Record: 3-1
Last NBA Championship: -
Last NBA Finals Appearance: 2007
Last Postseason Appearance: 2008
A reason to cheer for the Cavaliers: Coming off the most successful regular season in franchise history, the Cavaliers are a strong contender to make it deep in the post-season. The team has never won an NBA championship, having come close back in 2006-07 when they made it to the Finals, only to be swept by the Spurs. The Cavs were eliminated by the eventual-champion Celtics in the Conference semi-final last season, and they're hungry to make their second LeBron-era trip to the big show. With the best home record in the NBA, the Cavs are practically unstoppable in Cleveland. The structured style of Cleveland's offence and defence gives them a solid foundational structure to work from for playoff success because it minimizes the likelihood of major meltdowns. The sheer power of LeBron James is enough to change the momentum of any game, and the team's disciplined approach lends itself to post-season success. Look for the Cavs to make a serious run - there's no reason to think otherwise.

Players to Watch: LeBron James, Mo Williams, Zydrunas Ilgauskas, Delonte West, Anderson Varejao
