A 12-point loss. That is what the hopes of the Detroit Pistons hinge on, a 12-point loss in Game 2. Why? Because Detroit did trail 79-50 at one time in the 4th quarter before trimming the lead to 7. The Cavaliers re-focused, however, and have vowed not to let it happen again.

That doesn't mean Game 3 is going to be easy. Utah proved last night that a 1 v 8 series can get interesting. Cleveland needs to play better than it has in either of the first two games and finish the Pistons off for good.
