Three things to watch

1. A winning streak?

The Pistons have won three games in a row only once this season, beating Toronto, Sacramento and Dallas. The Pistons are making a habit of closing wretched seasons strong. If they win at Charlotte, they close the season with games against Cleveland and Philly. I’m sure many fans hoping for greater lottery chances would be exasperated if the Pistons find a way to win all three remaining games.

2. The revenge of Kwame Brown

Don’t laugh. That center battle of Chris Wilcox vs. Kwame Brown could very well determine this game. Wilcox, as we’ve seen, is closing the season (contract season, incidentally) very strong. Brown has had a solid year in Charlotte, averaging 8 points, 7 boards and shooting 50 percent.
