No, Pistons fans, that is NOT a misprint. Your team is really on a two-game winning streak! We know, we know. We're just as shocked as you. But, get this: It could get even better. With two consecutive games against the Nets this week followed by a matchup with the Wizards, you have a very real shot of being on a five-game winning streak by the time next week rolls around. So, basically, you need to treat this week like the NBA Finals. Which is about as close as you're going to get to the real NBA Finals, so, yeah. Go nuts!—Chris Yuscavage
