Pistons-Hornets Preview

(AP) -- Although the Charlotte Hornets are doing nearly everything they can to quit the playoff race, the weak Eastern Conference seems to be refusing their resignation letter.

If they can win for just the fourth time in 13 games Wednesday night against the visiting Detroit Pistons, the Hornets could climb within a game of the conference's No. 8 spot. A loss, however, would drop them 1 1/2 behind 12th-place Detroit.

Charlotte (31-42) missed a chance to make up ground with Monday's 116-104 home loss to Boston, which sits 1 1/2 games ahead in the No. 9 spot. Brooklyn is one-half game ahead of the Celtics in eighth, while 10th-place Indiana is a full game behind Boston.
