  • Featured game: Detroit at Orlando

    I had some trouble picking this game to be featured. At first, I wanted to pick the big upset of the Lakers over Phoenix with Kobe being the X-Factor, but I couldn't bring myself to do it with the trade business still hanging over his head. Next, I wanted to feature the Knicks over the Cavs, but I decided that though it was an upset, no one really cares. So finally, I decided on Detroit against Orlando, a matchup of top-tier teams in the East. I don't think it will be much of a contest though, as good as the Magic are after seeing how Detroit dismantled the Heat without Richard Hamilton (Personal Matters). If they can match that performance against Orlando, they have this game in the bag.
    Winner: DETROIT
