Game Tips at 10:30 pm ET
Keys for Detroit
Force LeBron to be a jump shooter -- His all-star game performance, where he nearly gave away the game in a desperate attempt to win the individual MVP award, indicates that he has not yet left behind the "win it all myself mentality".
Attack the inside -- No Shaq, no Big Z, and less Varejao means more opportunities inside. I wouldn't mind seeing big minutes for Jason Maxiell tonight.
Play Daye - Seriously. Come on. This franchise is about the future.
Question of the Game
There are too many to count, but I think it is fair now to wonder whether this team has checked out. The Pistons just got blown out by a Knicks team that had just gotten blown out by the Cavs. That's problematic.
