Pistons puled out an OT victory against the Bucks.
Great Game, Rip scored 35 points. Chauncey was in the low to mid 20's.

Now the Pistons are 11 games ahead in the eastern conference.

Is it too early to start dreaming about the Finals?

ESPN just did a comparison betw the '84 Tigers and the current Piston squad. Both were 8-0 and 35-5. It will likely be on the Sportscenter loop Thursday morning. Hope they didn't jinx it, but ESPN said every NBA squad to go 35-5 ended up winning the title.

i love these winning streaks! Under LB we would have maybe a 8 or 9 game streak per year. Now there is a 8 game streak every other week!
I also love the chart that fsn showed, about the teams who have started 34-5(now 35-5), and they were all nba champs.

You know you are good when sportscenter devotes 5 minutes to your team. maybe i shouldn't say that because the last two years the pistons got no airtime, but still managed to win the championship, and make it to the finals in 2 years.

Broken_main, i'm not sure but i'm pretty sure it was near .500, considering it was with a new coach and it was PRE-SHEED!!!

I hate the comparison to the Tigers. The only thing they have in common is the number. The Tigers accomplishment is that much tougher and difficult of a task in my opinion; and besides aren't we comparing apples to oranges?? I don't mind comparing the Pistons to the Bulls teams that went on those streaks.

Before long they'll be comparing the current Lions to the Red Wings under Ned Harkness (aka. Daad Things). UGH!

Smogboy,

Comparing the two, NBA teams play nearly half the games that MLB teams. So the averages of difficulty can be argued. I say that the Pistons have more difficulty in getting these wins - without the great equalizer being factored in, pitching.

Plus, I don't think anyone is really COMPARING. The coincidences between two teams of different sports in the same town is pure FUN.

Funny thing is they are only 4 games ahead of where they were last year after 40 games (31-9).

But the team is light years ahead of where they were last year.

Stay healthy, stay healthy, stay healthy...

All in all, they are a better team and who knows when they will eventually lose their ninth game this season...could be in the playoffs by then.

We all can see that the Pistons are on a mission. I am loving the fact that their determination is to have home court throughout, they look like they are having fun, the bench is getting some time, they look very relaxed even in the tightest of games...oh yeah...and Yes!! they are reasonably healthy.

Lurker --

That makes much more sense. They were talking about it on the Fan this AM, and that was the number the brought up.

Jamie, Brady, et al, were really suprised by the number (as was I).

There I go again spouting shit not from the source.

"Objection your Honor, Daburch's facts are all hearsay..."

Actually, the Reich Marshal, Itsjeff, formally changed the spelling of my name.

The spelling is in deference to that decision...

It is fun to compare with the '84 Tigers, but the two are really apples and oranges.

Baseball is a much more random game than basketball, so you simply don't get these types of totally dominant teams in baseball. The Pistons' 35-5 is unusual, but it's been done before by a few teams. The Tigers' 35-5 record was unprecedented in 100 years of baseball, and may never be acheived again.
