Default 2009 Playoffs Round 1: #1 Cavs vs #8 Pistons

It's Deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeetroit basketball against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA playoffs again! We remember LeBron James's epic game 5 from a couple of years back that really put his name on the map as one of the league's premier performers. The Cavs and Pistons have had quite the battles in the playoffs in the past. Probably one of the more underrated rivalries in the NBA right now, if you want to call it that. Will the Pistons be able to even put a dent in the armor of the #1 seed Cavs with the absence of Chauncey Billups who has moved on to Denver? No Iverson, and the Piston's better players have begun to play like players who are at an advanced age. Will the Cavs steamroll the Pistons? Will the Pistons shock the world? Talk about it here!

I'm jumping on the cavs bandwagon. Don't need an expert to tell you Cleavland is going to kill the Pistons. Cavs in 4.

Cavs in 4, The weak 2007 Cavs took out the Pistons in 2007 when they were actually dominant with Chauncey Billups. I'll be surprised if the Pistons win one game.... That's how much I favor the Cavs, and that's how inconsistent the Pistons have been this season.
