Pistons final score: Detroit can’t keep up with Warriors’ range, 104-97

USA TODAY Sports

Golden State sank Detroit thanks to hot three point shooting in the second half. The Warriors hit eight of their nine threes in the second half on 15 attempts.

Andre Drummond. He was the bright spot of this game. The only bright spot. Blocks, dunks, rebounds, and energy, the Bull brought them. His final line was 15/12/2 and a steal, but his impact was even stronger than that. Pretty much any time the team put on a run, Drummond was in the middle of it.

Both teams showed up with an ugly first half. The Warriors pulled out to an early lead, but Drummond carried the Pistons back with eight points, seven rebounds (two offensive), and two blocks. The backcourt of Stuckey, Knight, and Singler was 0-9 shooting with five turnovers in the first half.

Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry initiated the third quarter collapse, particularly from three. They put up 36 to the Pistons' 23, and that was all she wrote. As Laughton pointed out, the backcourt was outscored badly, 59-24 Ouch.

Moose struggled offensively and with fouls, finishing with 9/5/3 with four turnovers. Stuckey was the engine for the Pistons' offense with 17 points, nine assists.

CV nearly led the comeback with a three pointer and a steal to run a fast break, pulling the game within three points with a minute to go. But Brandon Knight missed shots, a foul, and turnover sealed the deal for the Warriors.
