Pistons-Heat Game Thread

I'm mailing in this preview just like the Pistons mailed in their last game -- MW

Ball tips at 7:30 PM

Oppo Research:

The title of that video is "Dwyane Wade dunks Rashard Lewis while scoring 50 points." The moral of the story, I suppose, is that Dwyane Wade will eat you alive unless Dwight Howard is there to stop him or Shaquille O'Neal is there to comment on his small ears. Or something. I'm not entirely sure what's going on, but I do know that neither Howard nor O'Neal are on the Pistons, and that if Wade scores 50 tonight, there's no chance in hell the Pistons will still win by 20.

The Drama:

The Pistons have won just five of their last 20 games, and if they lose tonight, they'll slide under .500 for the first time since November 2006.

Keys for Detroit:

Don't suck.

Question of the Game:

Things can't get worse ... can they?
