yes, i know the pistons can win without HCA, but it would make the job of winning the championship so much easier. the last couple of years the pistons have done great after the all star break, and had momentum going to the playoffs. the pistons are not playing their greatest and it doesn't help that the spurs are now only 1 game behind us, and dallas is 2 games behind us. how will the regular season finish? also what will there record be for the 31 games be after the all star break?
