Outlook

Don’t let anyone fool you. This is not a must-win game. The Pistons lead the Bobcats by two games. Even if the Pistons lose, they’ll still have a one-game advantage.

And four of Charlotte’s next five games are on the road.

Sure, a win today would help a lot. But a loss isn’t the end of the world.

    Hey Dan,

    I’m the new writer/editor for Motown String Music–the Detroit Pistons site that is set to launch on SB Nation in the next few days. I was hoping you could add me to your blogroll (I have you on mine already for when the site goes live). I’m going to be looking to link to all the other Pistons blogs, hopefully daily. I’m looking forward to speaking with you and possible developing a nice relationship between our two blogs.

    Great work here,

    Brian
