Series Preview

Image Hosted by

The Pistons start the Eastern Conference Finals tonight against the Indiana Pacers. The Pistons got here by beating the Bucks in the first round and then they beat the Nets in 7 games in the second round. The Pacers are coming off beating the Heat in 6 games. The key matchup in this series will be Rasheed Wallace vs. Jermaine O'Neal. The Pistons only beat the Pacers once the entire regular season,that one time was when they had Rasheed Wallace. The Pistons will also have to watch Ron Artest,who was the League's Defensive Player of the Year. Along with his defense,Artest can score. Detroit will need a big series out of Tayshaun Prince who played terrible in games 3-7 of the New Jersey series. The Pistons are going up against their old coach Rick Carlisle. They fired him last year and replaced him with Larry Brown. This series will probably prove if the Pistons were right or wrong in firing him after winning 50 games in both years that he coached in
Detroit. It should be a great series between these 2 great teams.
