Perhaps lost in the Pacers great 4-0 western road is the fact that the Pistons went 4-1 on their trip, routing the Blazers, Sonics, Nuggets, and there only loss being at Utah.
I would be very interested to hear what the Pistons fans among us have to say.
I watched most of the Pistons blowouts of the Blazers and Nuggets and the Pistons look impressive even without Rip Hamilton who is injured.
To say the Pistons defense has been stifling would be an understatement, right now they aren't giving up any decent shots and teams are having trouble even passing the ball against the Larry Brown trademark pressure defense.
From the looks of things Sheed has helped the Pistons defense more than their offense. Ben and Sheed make quite a defensive tandem, in fact I can't think of a better inside combo in the whole NBA. [size=9:f1e3590fc2]although as far as the whole front line I'll take Artest, J,.O and Foster[/size].
As I was afraid of Sheed is exactly what the Pistons needed, now I fear the Pistons as a team have much more confidence.
