Newly acquired Adrian Dantley leads the way with 21.5 ppg as the Pistons have 4 players average more then 15 points per game. However, it is the team's aggressive defensive style led by Bill Lambier that gets all the attention as the Pistons employ a rough style of play earning the nick name of"The Bad Boys"" on the way to finishing in 2nd place with a 52-30 record. In the playoffs the Bad Boys style of play would lead to success as they dominated the Washington Bullets in 3 straight games. In the 2nd round the Pistons continued to fire on all cylinders as they upset the Atlanta Hawks in 5 games to reach their first Conference Final in 26 years. In the Eastern Finals the Pistons would get off to a rough start as they dropped the first 2 games on the road against the Boston Celtics. However
