The Pistons capture the Western Division with sharp shooter Larry Foust leading the NBA in shooting percentage. After a first round bye the Pistons beat the Minneapolis Lakers in 4 games to reach their first NBA Finals. However, in a hard fought 7-game series the Pistons would be beaten by the Syracuse Nationals as they lost Game 7 on the road in the final seconds 92-91.
