The Pistons were defeated in spite of a 1-13 performance from Brandon Jennings. Again, the inability to hit from long range cost Detroit, though an uncharacteristic failure to rebound factored in as well.
Hamilton and Prince, who had been the subject of no end of trade rumors, stepped up to deliver a mighty offensive performance. They scored 41 of Detroit's 85 points, while playing some very efficient basketball.
Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva managed six points on 2-10 shooting in 38 minutes. Way to earn the contracts, guys.
The David Greenwood Unsung Hero :
Jonas Jerebko had one of his brutally efficient nights, grabbing four rebounds to go with his 12 points, on 6-7 shooting, in just 27 minutes.
At what point do we surrender our egos and hope for this team to tank? Now, I say.
