In this Eastern Conference finals against the Detroit Pistons, the Celtics had a couple of firsts. They lost a home game for the first time in this 2008 NBA Playoffs, which analysts would say the Celtics are now in trouble because they have not won a road game in the playoffs. The Celtics managed to get through the first and second round by winning all home games but losing all road games. They lost all three road games against the feisty Atlanta Hawks and also lost all three road games against King James and the Cavs. If the Celtics can't win on the road, they are in big trouble against the Pistons because they are a hell of a lot better team than those Hawks and a better team than the Cavs. But no, the Celtics got their first road win in The Palace to take a 2-1 series lead. Chauncey Billups is just playing through his nagging hamstring injury he suffered against the Hornets which means Celtics have a better chance of winning this series due to the fact that Chauncey is what makes the Pistons go. Game 4 will be crucial for the Pistons to win if they want to win this series because if the Celtics take a 3-1 series lead, its going to be a deep hole to climb out of for the Pistons.
