If you hype up a game as much as we and everyone else did, how can you not reward the winner?

Exactly. It was pretty much automatic for the committee (of one) to give Detroit a Christmas bump into the top spot in ESPN.com's weekly NBA Power Rankings, after the Pistons went to Boston for the most anticipated game of the season thus far and handed last week's No. 1 team its first home defeat.

Your reaction to the Pistons' return to No. 1 for the first time since the 2005-06 season -- they never got higher than No. 4 last season -- or the latest surprise move upward by the Portland Trail Blazers is welcome here or at the bottom.
