The big question heading into this afternoon's game will be Chauncey Billups' availability, and the latest I've heard is that he's day-to-day, so this may end up being a game-time decision. But even if it costs Detroit this game, I won't complain if the team errs on the side of caution -- groin injuries can linger, especially when they're aggravated by trying to return too quickly.
But, Chauncey's injury aside, I can see why the national media likes this game. ESPN is touting this game as a potential NBA Finals preview, dedicating their entire Daily Dime today to these two teams.
