NBA Obsessed takes you into the hit and run game of NBA Basketball.

Rip and Sheed get serious

The Pistons won their 11th game in a row. Only Portland with 13 wins in a row this season has a longer streak. Portland lost Monday to Utah to end their streak.

Saturday in a marquee matchup the Pistons face the Celtics in the Palace of Auburn Hills.

Richard Hamilton scored 22 points, Rasheed Wallace added 20 and the Detroit Pistons extended their winning streak to 11 games with a 101-85 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Friday night.

Chauncey Billups had 18 points for Detroit, which has not lost since an 80-77 defeat in Houston on Dec. 12 and owns the longest current run in the NBA.

The Pistons’ streak is their longest since winning 11 straight in January 2006. source

The Celtics will be looking for a little revenge after losing to the Pistons recently. The Pistons tagged Boston with their first home loss of the year.


The Toronto team was overmatched by the Pistons, but Chris Bosh had a great game.

Chris Bosh had 23 points and 16 rebounds for Toronto, which has lost five of seven.

Chris has a shot at being a 20/10 guy this year. Right now he is averaging 20.3 points and 9.3 rebounds per game. 20/10 is an exclusive crowd.

Jose Calderon is close to averaging a double double an even more exclusive crowd. Jose had 15 points and 9 assists. He is averaging 11.2 points and 8.1 assists on the year.

Rip Hamilton

While Rip was in a slump early in the year and fighting minor injuries, lately he has been nye unstoppable.

Hamilton has averaged 21.6 points during the streak and has led the Pistons in scoring in the past seven games.

Should be a fantastic game with Boston on Saturday!
