Today the Pistons attempt to defend the Palace at home against a very beatable Eastern Conference Rival. Perhaps there will be shades of the early 90's Pistons-Knicks playoff games, in that this game might get ugly. Perhaps there will be shades of the NBC situation comedy "Outsourced", in that this game might become unwatchable.
An underlying story here is the Pistons own untested big man, Greg Monroe, going against the unknown Russian center with a hilariously phonetic name, Timofey Mozgov. Mozgov of course is known for smelling the crotch on Blake Griffin's shorts in the middle of a game. Hopefully Pistons win!
