Outlook

It was bound to happen — the statistics project a tie. But, obviously, that won’t happen.

Rodney Stuckey will be back, according to Carlos Monarrez of the Detroit Free Press. Richard Hamilton, Rasheed Wallace and Allen Iverson? Not so much, although there’s a small chance Hamilton plays.

The Pistons are two games behind the Heat for the fifth seed in the East. In addition to tomorrow’s game, the teams play in their final game of the regular season.
