Pistons take on Shaq, Suns

New, comments

The Pistons kick off their four-game swing out West with a nationally-televised game against the new-look Suns. Does Shaq have enough left in the tank to take the Suns to the Finals? Right now I'm less concerned about that as I am wondering if the Pistons have enough big men left on the roster to contain both him and Amare Stoudemire.

You know how Amir Johnson's emergence has been a nice little bonus the last few weeks? This afternoon his play will be critical, as will that of Rasheed Wallace, Antonio McDyess and Jason Maxiell. This might be one of those nights where all four need to show up for the Pistons to have a chance. Same goes for the backcourt, although Chauncey Billups usually does a good job against Steve Nash. The ball tips in a few minutes -- leave your thoughts in the comments.
