PISTONS BY THE NUMBERS
Check this out. Here are some accomplishments the Pistons have done over the years.
No team had won three road games in the 2-3-2 Finals format until the 1990 Pistons did it against Portland. And by the way the Pistons had lost 17 straight times in the Rose City.
Last year the Pistons became the first team to win all three home games in the 2-3-2 format against the Lakers.
This year they became the first road team trailing 3-2 in the 2-3-2 to win game 6. The Pistons had lost 10 in a row in San Antonio before breaking through.
In the last two years the Pistons have played in 8 playoff series.
They either began or lost home court edge in 7 of them. They've won all the series with a chance to win the seventh.
They have trailed after game 3 or beyond in five of the eight series, yet they could repeat as champions.
They are like the end of a horror movie where the bad guy gets it, yet leaps up again to do more damage before going down again.
