At last, the 2009 NBA Playoffs get underway with a classic first round matchup. The Cavs and Pistons have battled in 2 of the last 3 Playoff seasons with each team winning a classic series. There is little doubt that Detroit will be looking for a bit of revenge from the 2007 Eastern Conference Finals beatdown they received at the hands of LeBron James and the Cavaliers.

This is a much better Cavaliers team than that one, and Detroit doesn't have the same swagger they had, no matter what they say. Talk means little now, as the team with the best record in the NBA, both at home and overall, begins its quest for a Championship!
