Pistons Win First Game Of Season Against Pacers

The Pistons beat the Indiana Pacers 100-94 in Wednesday nights game opener. In the first quarter, the Pacers were on a roll leading the Pistons 12-4, but Tayshaun Prince soon put a stop to that starting with a dunk between two defenders. It was looking good from there. Every time the Pacers tried to make a surge, the Prince was there to stop it.

The second unit had a couple of show stoppers as well. Arron Afflalo and Walter Herrmann forced turnovers with their sticky defense and knocked down some pretty shots. I'm really excited about Arrons offense this season. In game one he fearlessly knocked down shots and wasn't afraid of the 3 point line.

The approach that the Pistons are taking this season is to play like they never won a championship... If only they would have thought of that sooner...
