Lost in the hoopla over the NFL Draft and the excitement of the Red Wings game this afternoon, the Pistons defeated the Orlando Magic 97-93 to complete their first round sweep. Chauncey led the way with 25 points and 6 assists and Rip added in 19 points as Detroit overcame a monster game from Dwight Howard (29 points and 17 rebounds; I guess he was bound to play like that at some point) and a late 5 point deficit to even the series.
Up next for Detroit will most likely be the Chicago Bulls, who hold a 3-0 edge on the Miami Heat in their first round series.
Rasheed embracing Darko after hearing the Lions had drafted Calvin Johnson. Or something like that.
