SBNation Previews

Detroit Bad Boys Preview:

[The Magic] don't get to the free-throw line, they don't block shots, they don't get any steals and as a result they don't get out and run or have very many easy opportunities.

Orlando Pinstriped Post Preview:

Tuesday in Detroit, the Pistons built a two-point halftime lead over Orlando, and then ballooned that lead to as large as 16 points in the third quarter as the Magic fell apart on both ends of the floor.
