Here we are. Pistons fans and perhaps the entire NBA had called this matchup from early in the season. The team that has been in the ECF the last 5 years, against the annointed retooled Celtics. Can the Pistons match the Celtics intensity, consistently for a series? Will the Pistons steal game 1 after Boston has just completed a grueling 7 game series? How will the Pistons mindset be for this, their sixt consecutive ECF?
