The Pistons and Magic kick off the proverbial second half (technically, it’s the last third of the season) tonight in Detroit (7:30, FSN). The Pistons swept the Magic in the regular season and playoff last year and have taken two of the first three meetings this year, with their lone loss coming on a heartbreaking last-second shot by Rashard Lewis. Even so, the Magic should not be taken lightly. They’ve won nine of their last 13 and in Dwight Howard feature the best young big man in the game.
I'll be at the game for HOOPSWORLD filing pre-game, halftime and post-game reports, and as usual, feel free to leave your comments about the game in the comments.
