Pistons hope to end skid against streaking Celtics

Through the first 20 games of the season, the Detroit Pistons looked like one of the most improved teams in the NBA.

They are now in danger of falling below the .500 mark. They need a home victory over the streaking Boston Celtics on Saturday to avoid that distinction.

Detroit was cruising along with a 13-7 record but has dropped its last six games. The latest was especially agonizing, as it blew a seemingly comfortable fourth-quarter lead and fell to the Charlotte Hornets 108-107 on Wednesday.
