 DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Pistons wrapped up their preseason last week with an impressive win over Atlanta.
Now, the slate is wiped clean.
Detroit hosts the Houston Rockets in Wednesday night's season opener, which the Pistons hope will be the start of a season that returns them to relevance in the Eastern Conference. Detroit started 4-20 in last year's lockout-shortened season but went 21-21 after that. The Pistons are hoping to make a run at a playoff berth this season behind young big man Greg Monroe.
Second-year coach Lawrence Frank had a more normal preseason this time around, with no labor dispute to shake up the league.
