We kind of did this already Friday, but let me reiterate that, of the contending teams in the East, Detroit scares me the least.  The Wizards match up better with Detroit than either Cleveland, Miami (a top team in name only), or Chicago.  This is especially true when they play Chris Webber at center, because Antawn Jamison can now guard a player who won't pound him inside.  There's a reason why Antonio McDyess dominated the Wizards in the last matchup, while Webber struggled.  

That's not to say Detroit isn't a formidable team.  I'd just rather see them than Cleveland or Chicago.
