Prince, Gordon, Bynum miss 5th in row

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- The Detroit Pistons will be without three key players against the Boston Celtics.

Tayshaun Prince (knee), Ben Gordon (groin) and Will Bynum (ankle) did not play Wednesday night -- the fifth game in a row all three have been out. Bynum has now missed 10 straight games, while Gordon has only played in 25 of Detroit's 41 games and Prince has been in active in just nine.

Kevin Garnett (knee) missed his 11th game of the season for Boston, but Celtics coach Doc Rivers said that Garnett looked "fantastic" in Tuesday's practice, and could play Friday against Portland.
