Pistons Keep Winning

It might be coming at the worst time, but the Pistons are on their first three-game winning streak in quite some time. Though it's decreasing their chances of winning the NBA Lottery next month, the team is coming on strong to close the season.

Detroit is still shorthanded. The team continues to play without shooting guard Rip Hamilton, and though forward Jason Maxiell returned to action last night, the Pistons were without point guard Rodney Stuckey, who sat out with sore ribs.

The one good thing about this run is that the Pistons are finally getting stellar play out of their big free-agent pickups from last summer, guard Ben Gordon and forward Charlie Villanueva. Their development in Detroit is going to be crucial to any future success of the franchise.
