Outlook

Rasheed Wallace and Allen Iverson will dress for the game, according to Dana Gauruder of the Oakland Press. Their play could be a big boost for the Pistons’ chances of climbing the standings

The Pistons play the 76ers twice in six days. When healthy, I still think Detroit is a better team. With Wallace and Iverson out, Philadelphia is better.
