Pistons-Magic -- Prediction

Well, now that the Pistons are awake, this should be an easy series, right? Well, it would be if you actually believe that the Pistons will stay awake, sharp, focused, etc., for two consecutive weeks. In all likelihood, and if history has told us anything, they won't. This, of course, means that Orlando has a shot. In order to get it done, however, the Magic will need more 20-20s from Dwight Howard, scoring from Rashard Lewis against Tayshaun Prince, and some way to neutralize a huge disadvantage in the backcourt. In one big way, this series is on Jameer Nelson to outplay Chauncey Billups. Add it all up and a lot of things have to go Orlando's way to get four victories.
