Nothing has changed.
Detroit had a 15-point lead against a demoralized Jazz squad Saturday night and still managed to lose 90-87. Utah has now beaten the Pistons 13 times in the last 14 games.

MILWAUKEE -- Playing for the first time in four days, the Detroit Pistons could expect to be a little rusty. And for the first half Friday against Milwaukee, the Pistons looked very much like a team trying to dust off cobwebs.
