From Vince Ellis of the Freep:
Of the Pistons' next 13 games, six are against teams currently with winning records. In the final eight, only one is against a team with a winning record.
But there is little margin for error given the early-season struggles.
"It's that time of year where you got to grind games out and you try to build momentum going into the playoffs," Curry said. "That's where now hopefully your experience comes in and hopefully your experience means something -- that you know how to get ready both mentally and physically for this time of year and play some really good basketball."
It helps that the Pistons are facing the Magic tonight: as Chris McCosky points out, the Pistons have won 18 of their last 23 regular-season games against the Magic, not to mention eight of nine playoff games.
