The Pistons choked one away against the Magic just four days ago. Detroit looks to atone for that mistake by forgoing the fourth quarter collapse. No 39 point quarters.

The Situation

Get a load of this. For those that don't like to click links it is to our friends at Orlando Pinstriped Post. They report that the Magic are changing their starting lineup because they are afraid of Tayshaun Prince. HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHAHA.

With that out of my system, let's just reiterate the basics: Play defense, defend the paint, rebound, avoid fourth quarter collapse.

Keys to the Game

Moose-giving -Greg Monroe dominated in the first meeting between these teams. He has had a string of strong games and they need to continue tonight.

Singler and Stuckey - Pistons need an efficent game from Kyle Singler and Rodney Stuckey to lead the bench crew so that they can at least maintain a lead if they are given one.

Brandon Knight needs to have a bounceback game - Knight was awful in the Pistons previous game. He needs to limit the turnovers and hit a decent percentage tonight.
