    This isn't really an article, just an NBA team rating. What I thought was interesting is that, if I've done the math right, the Pistons have the best W-L percentage of any NBA team against the top 16 teams in this particular rating. Encouraging?

    That's good news. However, we already knew that Pistons get up for the tougher opponents, especially Sheed.

    True we did know that. And I assume that probably any of the top teams get up for games against other top teams.

    What I guess I didn't know was that they are also more effective than other teams against those same tougher opponents.

    We have a good team. As long as they play up to their abilities and get a couple of breaks I like their chances.

    8-0 against Spurs, Lakers, Suns, and Hornets helps.

    Extra rest for weary far from tired topic

    Celtics' extra rest far from a tired topic - The Boston Globe

    ATLANTA - Starters for the Celtics and Pistons believe there was good and bad in being able to rest late in the regular season because of their teams' stellar records.

    Guard Chauncey Billups said Thursday that he and his fellow Detroit starters "lost our rhythm" during the homestretch of the regular season. The second-seeded Pistons needed six games to eliminate the seventh-seeded 76ers in the first round of the playoffs.

    "The last three weeks of the season, [the Sixers] were playing playoff basketball," said Billups. "They were trying to get in [the playoffs] and fight for position. On the other hand, the last three weeks, our starters were playing the first [quarter] and the first half of the third [quarter], so we kind of shut it down for the last three weeks, trying to stay healthy. In doing that, we lost our rhythm. Once we finally did get it back, we didn't look back. We pretty much took over the series."
