Cavs square off with Pistons in second round

The Cavaliers have finished one of the most thrilling and intense first-round series in the NBA playoffs. Can they carry that momentum over to the Detroit series or will they be too emotionally and mentally drained? The Cavaliers will face the top seed Detroit Pistons in the second round. The Pistons showed their dominance by disposing of the Milwaukee Bucks 4-1 in the first round. The boys from Motown completed their series awhile ago so they will be nice and rested while the Cavs are coming off six hard-fought battles with Gilbert Arenas and the Wizards. The series begins Sunday afternoon in Detroit.

If we continue to play solid defense and get production from the bench I think we have a chance to make it a competitive series. However, in reality, I believe the former champion Pistons will prove to be too much for the young Cavaliers. Not to say that we have no chance of beating Detroit, but they are just too strong of a team and they already have our number this season. They have that grit and aggressiveness as shown by the way they have pushed around the Cavs physically. When it’s all said and done, I say the Pistons take the series 4-2.
