Every couple weeks we'll do a rundown of where the Pistons stand in reference to the top statistical categories that matter in todays NBA. So far, six games in is still pretty early to making any conclusions. But we do see a pretty good juggling act when it comes to the Pistons overall balance..let's look at how they rank as a team, compared to all the others this morning..We'll list the top 6 teams in each category.. Team Scoring, The Pistons are 6th at 100.7 per game same as the 5th ranked Cavs. The Suns remain #1 at 108.2 then it's those amazing Bucks at 107.6, Wizards at 102.7 and 76'ers at 101.4. Team Defense, The Pistons woke in the #1 spot after the Magic slipped a bit. Detroit is holding teams to 87.7, then it's the Magic at 89.3 (who'd a thunk it), Rockets at 89.5, Grizz at 89.9, Jazz at 90.4 and Wiz at 90.5. Only 2.7 points per game separate these 6 top teams.

Team FG% (who's hot), The Pistons are sizzling at #1,.486%, right at their heels, Miami Heat shooting .484, Spurs .481, Pacers .476, Wiz .473 and Suns .471.

Team Personal Fouls The Spurs are moving their feet folks, they lead the league as the least whistled team at 20.14 per game. Then our own Detroit Pistons are getting serious respect at 21.00, then the Cavs at 21.29, the Grizz at 21.29, the Blazers at 21.40 and the Woves at 22.00. Team Steals The fastest hands belong to those upstart Bobcats at 13.00 per game, then the Celts 10.3, Pacers at 10.00, Lakers at 9.0, Seattle at 9.0 and Iversons 76'ers round out the top 6 at 8.71. (Detroit is ranked 8th at 8.33). Team Turnovers The Suns are winning this one, a measley 11.83 per game. Then the 76'ers at 12.29, the Wolves at 12.33, The Pistons at 12.50, The Wiz at 12.67 and finally the Hornets at 13.60.

The Pistons are second in the league at +5.17, then its Celts at 4.50, Wiz at 4.17, Nuggets at 4.0 and finally the Wolves at 3.50. Team Swats It must be the AIR up there cause Denver is flying high at 7.17 swats per outing. Then thre teams are tied at 7.0, Heat, Wolves and Jazz. Then the Blazers and Celtics at 6.50. (The Pistons are ranked #18 at 4.33) All in all, you can see why and how Detroit is getting it done. They're keeping all their balls in the air. The three areas where they can improve a bit, Swats, Steals and the Charity Stripe. Biggest surprise in these rankings, the Wizards are working some early magic. They look tough and balanced.
