This is why they’ll be the champs

As has been discussed repeatedly by Matt and me, Carlos Delfino has arrived. He's averaging 11 points and over 18 minutes in the last three Piston wins, and he's playing lockdown defense on some of the Association's toughest wings. The end result of Delfino's emergence will be fewer minutes for Tayshaun Prince, but unlike with other teams in the Association, this doesn't seem to be a problem. Tay Tay to A. Sherrod Blakely of MLive:

"I'm happy to see that go on," Prince said. "His confidence is growing with the more minutes he gets out there on the floor. Six, seven minutes a game is not enough for Delfino. When he gets in the 13-, 14-, 15-minute area, he can be able to get some confidence and not just two or three shots a game."
