Can we end this yet? Like, now?

Hopefully Doc and Little Mac -- err, Rasheed Wallace and Chauncey Billups -- come out swinging. (Figuratively speaking, of course. If someone wants to literally come out swinging, here's to hoping it's Dale Davis or Nazr Mohammed or somebody from the end of the bench.)

The Pistons didn't fare too well their last trip to Chicago, getting completely outplayed in three out of four halves of basketball, with only the Bulls' Glass Joe impersonation in the second half of Game 3 saving Detroit from being down 2-3 right now.

The key, and this is simplistic, is jumping ahead early. I'm not worried about the Pistons losing a lead so much as I am them having always having to play catch up. If Ben Wallace is benched for the start (dude was late to the arena tonight, again), hopefully Chris Webber can get going early, because getting him into play-making mode would certainly help alleviate some of the pressure from Chauncey.
