The probable starting lineup for DET: G Billups... G Afflalo or Hamilton... F Prince... F Antonio McDyess... C Wallace. Top reserves... Hayes, Jason Maxiell, Nazr Mohammed, and Ronald Murray
The Magic will be looking to build off their impressive 102-83 opening night win over MIL. They should have extra motivation for this game, knowing that the Pistons swept the Magic in embarrassing fashion 4-0 in last season's playoffs. DET also swept the Magic 4-0 in the regular season last year. This will be a far different Magic team than the one that walked off the floor more than six months ago after getting swept by the Pistons.
