Just as the Nets try to get back on track after two straight losses and a season-ending injury to Nenad Krstic, they have to face the best team in the East, the Detroit Pistons, at the Palace of Auburn Hills. The Pistons are 17-8 with a four-game winning streak. Unlike the last time the two teams met, the Pistons will be the healthy team, the Nets the wounded warriors. So it's time for the bench and defense to step up.
