Game Tips at 7:30 EST
Detroit Pistons: 23-44 (16-18 home)
Cleveland Cavaliers: 52-15 (23-11 away)
Keys for Detroit
Watch the perimeter -- The old trick of packing the lane and making LeBron shoot jumpers is still valid, but the Cavs in general have become a very efficient three point shooting team. If you let them beat you from downtown, that is precisely what they will do.
Stop LeBron -- I mean, duh. Seriously, though, if the Pistons can make him give up the ball with some frequency, they should be able to stay competitive. The Cavs are light on weapons right now, and they can't count on 17 point from Varejao every time.
Play Daye - I'm going to cut and paste this for the rest of the season.
Question of the Game
With the number one seed in the bag, you have to think the Cavs will shift gears a bit. Will we see that tonight?
