In the Western Division the Pistons struggle finishing in 3rd place with a 32-36 record. Along the way the Pistons made history winning a November 22nd game in Minneapolis over teh Lakers by a score of 19-18, setting a record for the lowest scoring game in NBA history. However, it would be good enough for a spot in the playoff, where they would be upended by the Rochester Royals in a 3-game series.
