Game Preview: Pistons Head Home in Must Win Game

The Pistons have fallen behind in Round One of the NBA Playoffs 2-0 to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Now, Detroit heads home for a pivotal set of games. Down 2-0, the Pistons are back at The Palace Of Auburn Hills, where they will find a loud Palace crowd.

The Pistons want to get back in the series, but they will have to show a heck of a fight to knock of a Cleveland team that has found a groove.

As stated, this game is a must win for Detroit, and they need to come out with the intensity needed to win. The Cavaliers want to put the Pistons away, but the Pistons must do what it takes to survive Game 3 and come away with a victory in Detroit.
