WHOA, WHAT A RELIEF
The Pistons' game at Orlando Friday was a 'You had me at hello' experience. Right from the opening possession, when Tayshaun Prince went right at Dwight Howard and converted a three-point play, I felt they were going to win and snap the eight-game losing streak. Even when they were down eight at halftime, I felt they were playing with energy and passion.
You can't blame Allen Iverson for getting traded to Detroit but the Pistons sure played better without him. Iverson has a bad back and missed the game but Michael Curry had already decided to bench him and give Richard Hamilton his old starting job back. Hamilton responded wtih 31 points. Sure looked like the ol' Pistons for a night but how will things flow when Iverson returns? That's the big question.
