Detroit hoping to stop history in Miami

The Pistons will need a huge night from Greg Monroe to stop the torrent Miami Heat. - Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Heat are chasing their 25th consecutive win in front of their home crowd. Do the Pistons have a chance to be the Heat's roadblock?

The Situation

Miami is on fire, like NBA Jam on fire where everything you throw up from inside half court goes in, you can steal every pass and block every shot, and as a result, your team literally becomes an unstoppable force coupled with an immovable object.

Meanwhile, the Pistons haven't won a game in March.

Shudder.

I'm not sure what else to say. The Pistons have been the epitome of bad, and the Heat have been historically good. All signs point to Miami winning big.

That said, it is March... maybe the Pistons can drown out the March Madness noise by doing the impossible?

Keys to the Game

Show up for the game: Seriously. It feels like forever since the Pistons showed up looking like an NBA team that believed it could win a basketball game. Coach Frank is right - if you don't go into Miami believing you have a shot at winning, you might as well stay home.

Fill the gaps: The Pistons' offense has struggled without Brandon Knight, which probably says about as much as the Pistons' offense as a whole as it does about BK7, and the Pistons defense has been atrocious without Andre Drummond. Will Bynum, Kim English, Khris Middleton, Jason Maxiell, Charlie Villanueva, and Jonas Jerebko need to step up.

Question of the Game

Which of the die-hard Pistons faithful will be watching tonight's game in favor of March Madness?
