Pistons Accelerate to 20 Wins

The Detroit Pistons won their 20th game on December 20 by beating the Portland Trail Blazers. Detroit is off to it's best start ever. More importantly, the Pistons are battling for the best record and homecourt advantage in the playoffs.

San Antonio had the homecourt edge in the NBA Finals last June and defeated Detroit in Game 7 to win it's third NBA title. Because these two teams match up so well at every position, where they play Game 7 could again be the deciding factor.

Meanwhile, the Spurs lost a nail-biter in overtime to the much-improved Milwaukie Bucks and the Dallas Mavericks, another team capable of the best record, couldn't defend against Kobe Bryant, whose 62 points led the Los Angeles Lakers past the Mavs and kept them from becoming co-leader in the Western Conference.
