Vote: Can the Pistons win 70 games?


 Chauncey Billups
Should Chauncey Billups be rested more often by Flip Saunders?
The Pistons are looking as sharp as ever under new head coach Flip Saunders. So sharp, in fact, that there's talk of the Pistons becoming the second team in NBA history to reach 70 wins in a single season.

The 1995-96 Chicago Bulls (72-10) are the only team to do so, on the way to their first of three consecutive titles. Detroit is currently on pace to eclipse the 70-win mark.

The Pistons are looking to win their second NBA title in three years, but how important is it to win 70 games? Is it important enough to risk injuries to starters late in the season?

Those are questions Flip Saunders will wrestle with for the rest of this season. Currently, all five Pistons starters are averaging at least 34 minutes per game. Which starter could Detroit least afford to lose?
