Chauncey Billups: Game Two Isn’t a Must-win for Us

How else to interpret Chauncey Billups’ declaration that tonight’s Game 2 at the Palace isn’t necessarily a must-win game for the Pistons?

"I hope that this doesn’t happen, but if we were down 0-2, I still feel like we’d win the series," Billups said. "But I don’t want to get there and have to prove you all of that."

This is why the Pistons acknowledged Tuesday that they need to reestablish an offensive flow before this best-of-seven series shifts to Philadelphia on Friday. [Detroit Free Press]
