Sixers vs. Pistons: Series Begins Sunday

The Sixers limped into the playoffs, finishing on a four game losing streak and a record below .500. That's not the kind of momentum they are going to need to knock off an elite NBA team like the Pistons. Here is the schedule of games for the first round series between the Pistons and Sixers:

Gm. 1: Sun., April 20: at Detroit, 6 pm
Gm. 2: Wed., April 23: at Detroit, 7:30 pm
Gm. 3: Fri., April 25: at Philadelphia, 7 pm
Gm. 4: Sun., April 27: at Philadelphia, 7 pm
Gm. 5: Tue., April 29: at Detroit, TBD
Gm. 6: Thu., May 1: at Philadelphia, TBD
Gm. 7: Sat., May 3: at Detroit, TBD

I will have more analysis on this series later, but a lot of things are going to have to go right for the Sixers for them to do some damage. My initial prediction is Pistons in 6. There is a contrast in styles here, with the Sixers liking to push the ball and the Pistons liking to slow it down, so it should make for an interesting series.
