Pistons Outclass Lakers with Team Play, Hustle

NPR's Michele Norris talks with Bill Plaschke, sports columnist for The Los Angeles Times, about the National Basketball Association playoffs. The underdog Detroit Pistons surprised the Los Angeles Lakers Thursday night to take a 2-to-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. Plaschke is not surprised that the favored Lakers are in a hole -- the sports truism that the best team wins is holding, he says, and the Pistons are playing like a team while the Lakers are not.
