Outside of the Dallas Mavericks and Oklahoma City Thunder's matchup, the first round of the playoffs has been largely uneventful. The Boston Celtics are hurt and appear overmatched. The Miami Heat put the foot down on Charlotte in Game 1. Even without Stephen Curry the Warriors are approaching the Houston Rockets like practice. In fact, Game 1 between the East's top seed Cleveland Cavaliers and Detroit Pistons is one of the best games we've seen thus far. Tonight's game will be interesting in terms of finding out what type of drama might be in store as we move forward in the series.
Will the Pistons use their length and athleticism and transition offense to keep the game close again? Will their shooting turn cold after a hot start on Sunday afternoon? If the Pistons stay competitive, or even win, the series gets interesting as it turns for Games 3 and 4 in Detroit. If the Cavs take control, they can start to feel good about moving on. Either way, you'll want to watch.
