Tayshaun Prince looked weary and beaten up as he slipped on a sweater to battle the February cold. He'd just played his seventh game in nine nights and looked forward to a day off to relax around the house and stay under the covers.

The Pistons will get a chance to recharge their batteries following a high-energy 89-87 victory over the New Orleans Hornets Saturday night at The Palace — a second consecutive victory.

The Pistons don't play again until Wednesday, when they fly to New Jersey to play the Nets. That's an eternity in today's lockout-shortened season where teams jam as many as five games in a week.
