Do you believe in Pistons magic? Way to go Chauncey!

Do you believe in Pistons magic?

The Pistons are two wins away from heading to the the Eastern Conference Finals for the 6th straight year after defeating the Orlando Magic 100-93. One of the wizards Chauncey Billups scored 28 points to help the team take a 2-0 series lead. Chauncey also was presented with the J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award for his charity work.

Although the Pistons looked better in this round than the last one, they still have a lot of work to do. They need to stop blowing leads and concentrate on shutting the opposing teams down. They can't slack off and get too cocky. They also can't take anything for granted anymore.

Remember what happened in the 76ers series? They almost didn't make it to round two. Maybe they needed to be remained that winning isn't easy. Maybe they needed to play as a team. Maybe Flip Saunders is finally showing that he can coach.

If the Pistons want to win the Eastern Conference and get back to the Finals they have to keep up playing great basketball.
