With all of the talk surrounding the Shaq circus, and the Miami Heat, people are overlooking to World Champion Pistons, who have quietly won seven games in a row and are now 23-14 and climbing fast. After a stretch where many of their players missed significant time, all of the pieces are now back together. Orlando is 9-25 ATSin home games versus poor offensive teams (scoring <91 points/game) over the last 3 seasons. Detroit is a team that depends on being physical on the defensive end of the court to get it done. That often translates to winning on the road. Two stars on the Pistons here.
