It's bad enough that they lose to Cleveland.
The Pistons havent impressed me one bit.
It's the playoffs and teams invariably step up, esp. the first game on their home court. Do you really think that any team is going to hold LeBron James and Michael Redd down for four games in a row? Almost impossible to pull off with the caliber of those players. (And if Detroit had played Memphis they would have swept them as well.)
As for your not being impressed, well, that's how Detroit operates. They play a very defensive style, clamp down opponents break chances, and hit timely threes. They usually win their game by scoring around 90 points and holding their opponetns near 80. Not very impressive untill you realize they did it to their opponents 4 games out of 5 or 6.
Defense wins championships and that will prove to be the case again.
(Oh, and if you think that Dallas is a better defensive team than Detroit you are more of a homer than I thought.)
