The Pistons continue to lose more games they win at 34-45. However, once again they would make into the playoffs by finishing in 3rd place. In the playoffs the Pistons would rally after losing the first 2 games on the road to force a 5th game in Los Angels against the Lakers. However, once again the Pistons would fall in the first round as they are beaten by 17 points in the decisive 5th game.
