The Pistons could finish the season anywhere from sixth to eighth in the Eastern Conference, but the team doesn't believe that playoff seeding matters.
"I don't think about being an eighth seed being a situation we can't handle," forward Tayshaun Prince said. "Any situation would have been tough for us, the way we've been playing. It doesn't matter who we play. We have to be prepared, we have to be ready."
Richard Hamilton agreed with Prince.
"We're already near the bottom in the playoffs," he said. "At this point in time, regardless of who we play, we just have to know that we made it to the playoffs and hopefully we can make a run."
Detroit is currently eighth in the East, a game behind both Philadelphia and Chicago, who are tied for the sixth seed.

They will be a chic pick to pull off an upset; but, this team has been dead in the water for months now.
For the sake of making the East tougher, I wish the Iverson trade had never happened. With Chauncey, this could've pulled off the East title, or at least made life significantly tougher for the likes of Cleveland.
But, with no Chauncey, they are simply last year's team without Chauncey.
How is that good?

When he's asked why Kobe doesn't tweet, @thugraider37 said he offers this reply: "Does God tweet?"
