When asked if he thought it was scary to face the winless Detroit Pistons, 76ers big man Spencer Hawes said, "There are 30 scary teams in the NBA. " Wednesday the Sixers' performance was downright frightening.

When opposing teams look at the Chicago Bulls' backcourt, they see a very lethal threat. And then they see Sam Vincent. The man who strikes fear in the hearts of all those who assume defensive crouches in front of him is Michael Jordan. He's the NBA's leading scorer twice over, the first man to score 3,000 points in a single season since Wilt Chamberlain. They call him Air Jordan, and he's a threat to embarrass anybody any time he touches the ball. Vincent is just Sam Vincent, the point guard who had been like a toothless Doberman since the playoffs started.

But don't ask Chuck Daly about the Jordan rules. The Pistons' coach is sworn to secrecy. He keeps the plans secured under lock and key, in a briefcase handcuffed to his wrist.

Friday night, the Pistons wrapped up the Eastern Conference finals in Game 6 with a 103-94 win over Chicago, earning their second consecutive trip to the NBA finals against the Los Angeles Lakers.
