Some much-needed perspective: “Interviewed Wednesday on ESPN2′s ‘First Take,’ coach Michael Curry was asked about the Pistons’ 3-0 streak without Allen Iverson (who’s now out two more weeks with a bad back). ‘I know it’s easy for people to point to that,’ Curry said. ‘Like I said earlier, we went on our longest winning streak of the year when Rip Hamilton was hurt. I do know that with Rip in the starting lineup, we’ve had more guys playing better. I talked to Allen and Rip, and it’s not about those two guys starting…The reality is we’ve got to find a way each night to get five or six guys playing well.’”
