Game 1 - Nets @ Pistons - Monday, May 3, 8:00 PM

The Nets will take on the Pistons in a rematch of last year's Eastern Conference Finals, which New Jersey swept in four games. The two teams split this year's season series 2-2, with each team winning one game on the other's home court. Richard Jefferson averaged 21.5 points and 7.0 rebounds in those 4 games for the Nets, while Chauncey Billups averaged 17.3 points and 6.0 assists for the Pistons. The Nets will need to avoid turnovers against the Pistons' pressure defense and convert on open looks from the outside.
