The biggest news tonight is that Rodney Stuckey will be returning from his confounding bout with dizziness. Ben Wallace might be back as well, so the Pistons will be at full strength.
Game Tips at 7:00 EST
Detroit Pistons: 23-45 (7-26 road)
Indiana Pacers: 22-46 (7-30 away)
All of the hoops mania of the last two days was leading up to this, an epic matchup between the NBA's 25th and 26th best teams.
It looks as though the Pacers will be without their best player. Danny Granger has done some damage against Detroit, but now that only damage done is to his face. Nothing like a good old face injury.
Keys for Detroit
No spin moves for Stuckey -- Bad idea.
Don't use iPhones to watch the tourney -- Looking at you, Charlie V.
Play Daye - I'm going to cut and paste this for the rest of the season.
Question of the Game
Are the Pistons really going to push Stuckey and Big Ben? I mean, is it really worth something career threatening to play out these games?
