The Pistons will take on the Pacers tonight in the first game of a Detroit-Indiana back to back. The Pistons have won 13 of 15 to take a 6 1/2-game lead in the Central over second place Indiana, who have a 15-14 record coming into tonights game.
Its not quite the same old Indiana rivalry, in fact I used to loath the Pacers. Them coming into town is just the same to me as having a team like the Bucks come into the Palace. In fact the Pistons have gotten the best of The Pacers the past couple of seasons, this is what usually happens when Detroit is up against Indiana.
