2008 Playoff Central: Magic vs. Pistons

"They (Pistons) are where we want to be, a team that has dominated the Eastern Conference for years," said guard Keyon Dooling. "What better way to get to the top than to go though them?"

There is no better way, Keyon. The Magic drew the Pistons for the second round, and now they have the chance to turn the tables on the team that's frustrated them since the decade began. A series win would earn us quite a bit of respect; depending on how hard we fight, a loss might do that, too. But we didn't come here to lose. Don't let the Pistons get into your heads: we can take them down.

This page contains a side-by-side depth chart for both teams and more links than you can shake a stick at. We'll do our best to keep this page up-to-date.
