Got Detroit...



Quote
CLEVELAND -- The regular season is over, and it's finally playoff time.

Pistons guard Chauncey Billups said it best: "It's finally over, finally over, man."

The regular season ended with an 84-74 victory Wednesday over Cleveland, which played

without a resting LeBron James.

Now Detroit turns its focus to Philadelphia and the first round of the Eastern Conference

playoffs, with Game 1 of the best-of-seven series set for Sunday at The Palace. The Pistons

had known for some time they would be the second seed in the East behind Boston.

"Once you know that it's a tough chance that anyone will catch you and move you down to

third (seed) it's tough a little bit because you want to get to the playoffs and you want

to try to get back to the finals and things like that," Pistons guard Richard Hamilton

said. "We did a good job of staying focused through the end of the season and still winning

games."

A Detroit team that has played in five consecutive Eastern Conference finals is heavily

favored over a No. 7-seed Philadelphia team that hasn't made a playoff appearance in two

years. By no means do the Pistons fear Philadelphia, but they do respect the 76ers.

"That team is tough. That team is very underrated the way they have played since the

All-Star break," Billups said. "They have won a lot of games, and they are difficult (to

play) because they are very athletic and like to get in the passing lanes. They're a

transition basketball team, so they're a lot different than we are."
