Detroit’s on a roll and they would love to get a road win tonight against the 12 and 15 Nets. The Pistons are on a five game winning streak, while New Jersey is on a two game streak of their own. Detroit always needs to be at the top of their game when it comes to New Jersey and it looks like The Nets coach Lawrence Frank and Jason Kidd are giving The Pistons the respect they deserve.
“Detroit going into Boston and winning there and then coming back last night and beating Houston. I think when you look at their play-even back to when we played them – they’ve been at a very consistent, high level so we’re going to have to be on top of our game.” Frank
“Them beating the Celtics, I would consider them the best team in the East right now because they’ve been together and they know how to win. They get up for big games and they’re a team that’s very consistent so this will be a big test for us.” Kidd
Tip off is at 7:30 PM and is being locally broadcast on WDIV Detroit. As always, leave ’em in the comments or chat live in the Need4Sheed.com Forum chat room during the game.
