The key to playing consistently

Tayshaun Prince has been a starter in 445 NBA games, including 365 straight, the most among active players.

DET coach Michael Curry explains how Prince does it:

"A big part of Tayshaun is he takes care of his body. He makes sure he gets the proper rest. And soon as he gets any ankle pain, he gets treatment on it and stays on top of it. That's a big part of being able to play consistently, and play without missing games. Sometimes injuries happen, but preparation for those injuries and how you take care of your body really helps."
