A Detroit Pistons live event

The Detroit Pistons have had playoff success across multiple generations of NBA basketball, and all of them have one thing in common. That thing is the desire to play physical, hard-nosed basketball, and to outwork their opponents both before and during games. The two golden ages of Pistons playoff basketball put those traits on full display.

This physicality started with the legendary Pistons teams known as the Bad Boys. These teams lived up to that name, with great athletes who could put opponents on the floor all over the roster. Tough guards like Isiah Thomas and Joe Dumars teamed up with imposing big men like Dennis Rodman and Bill Laimbeer to create teams that were extremely tough, but also had skilled enough guards to get themselves through any situation required of them.

These Pistons teams won two titles, grabbing the NBA Finals in back-to-back years in 1989 and 1990. In both of those years, the Pistons had to go through the Chicago Bulls in the Eastern Conference Finals, who were just a short while away from winning multiple championships of their own. It was during that time that the Bad Boys had what they called the Jordan Rules, where they refused to allow even one easy basket to the now-legendary Jordan. This turned the Bulls and Pistons into rivals during that time period.

Detroit had a similarly focused team when they won another championship in 2004. Built around defensive stoppers like Ben Wallace and Tayshaun Prince, the Pistons managed to upset the heavily favored Lakers in the 2004 NBA Finals. Despite the Lakers having all-time greats like Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant, along with coach Phil Jackson, the Pistons just showed more heart and were able to suffocate the Lakers defensively en route to the upset and the title.

In that series, the Pistons allowed over 90 points just once in the five games that were played, and that one time was an overtime game where the Lakers needed an additional five minutes just to reach 99 points. It was one of the best defensive performances in the history of the sport, and a testament to the mentality of Detroit basketball.
