With Wednesday's win against the Bucks, the Pistons matched the '84 Tigers with a 35-5 record. The Tigers went on to win the World Series, but before doing so they went just 69-53 (.565) the rest of the way, finishing with a .642 winning percentage for the year. Basketball records and baseball records are apples and oranges, I know. . . but if the Pistons finished with a .642 winning percentage, they'd win just 53 games. And for that to happen, Detroit would have to go 18-29 the rest of the way. Kind of puts things in perspective, eh?
So what do you think the Pistons final record will be? Leave your answer in the comments. I know there are a lot of frequent readers out there that have yet to make their first official comment, so this is a great time for you to finally make your voice heard.
