    1st round action begins with the Pistons hosting the Sixers. Pistons ended the season on a 4 game winning streak while the Sixers ended on a 4 game losing streak. Teams split the 4 game season series 2-2.


    Note: Pistons.com has us listed on Sat with no time and nba.com and espn.com have us starting on Sun at 6pm so I am going with that.

    I believe this is the third time in the past six years that Pistons play Philly in the playoffs.

    We have been playing Philly and Milwaukee a lot these last few years in the first round.

    I'm going. I'll take some pictures. My seat is front row of Upper section right on mid-court. Sweet action. Seeing as you are wearing a different jersey, are you taking the other car as well Warthog?

    well my buddy is probably going to drive for game one, if not my car should be fixed and i'll be taking that. i have to find out which section we're in...it's row 7 center court. it'll be cool if it's on the same side.

    Re: 1st Round Game 1 - Sixers Sun Apr 20 6PM

    Pistons need to offer up a serious beatdown in Game 1 to send the proverbial message. The Sixers need to know in the 1st Q of game 1 that they don`t have a chance. Not to mention this series does not need to go past 5 games at the most.

    curiously enough - espn experts do not believe that pistons can win in 4, most of them predict pistons in 5-6.

    I see no need for more than 4 games, though.

    There's no need, I agree with that, but it all depends if the Pistons are on for all 4 games then it should be a sweep.

    Sixers are fiesty. They play the type of ball that annoys our starting 5.

    We can dominate them, but it will take a lot of real effort from Sheed.

    8.8 DR, can't let Phillys youth get confident.
    Open the gates to the Reserve and let the Zoo out. At least 50 player minutes total.

    First-round matchup: Pistons vs. Sixers - Detroit Pistons Basketball: News, Blogs, Photos, Audio, Schedule & Stats - MLive.com

    Rating the matchups; We have the advantage according to the writer in all categories except one. Although i think the forward match-up is equal if not tilted in the Sixer's favor.

    The old saying with this group is they can turn it on when needed. We have all been there.

    The click has been turning into a clack. It will probably go to a game seven. If Philly can stay out of foul trouble, then they could make it interesting for game seven. Each will steal a game from one another.
