During the now-gone four-game winning streak (against teams that were a combined 30-67), the Pistons shot 49-percent and averaged 23 assists per game. Tonight, against the 6-22 WASHINGTON WIZARDS, they shot 33-percent and lost by 21, 98-77.
The Wizards weren't shooting any better for a minute, which is why the Pistons were, believe it or not, up two with four minutes left in the third quarter. Washington started the third quarter 6-for-18, but finished it making five of their last six shots while the Pistons missed their final four and turned the ball over three times. The Wizards turned that two-point deficit into a nine-point lead going into the fourth quarter and the game was never closer than that.
Detroit finished just 1-for-11 from three and dished out 17 assists opposite 19 turnovers. Greg Monroe led all scorers with 27 points, but only grabbed six rebounds and he also had six turnovers.
- The Pistons guards shot a combined 6-for-36. Brandon Knight had his worst game of his NBA career (1-for-9, 1 rebound, 2 assists, and 3 turnovers)
- Austin Daye was 2-for-9.
- John Wall had 15 assists and 7 turnovers.
- You know what, just check out the freaking box score.
- Congratulations to The Boourns on the nup's and Dragonite, who is new around these parts and not tanking:
