Pistons vs. Trail Blazers: Second-half GameThread

New, comments

The Pistons trail in Portland at the half, 58-55, but considering the Trail Blazers are shooting 54.8 percent from the field (and 8-of-14 from 3-point land), it could be much, much worse.

The Trail Blazers have threatened to blow this game wide open when they opened the game with an 11-2 run. But the Pistons fought back, playing a disciplined offense and feeding their Moose: Greg Monroe is one of four Pistons players with double-digit scoring with 11 points and eight rebounds. Josh Smith and Rodney Stuckey also have 11, while Brandon Jennings has chipped in 10.

We knew this coming in, but Portland's 3-point attack is legit: the Blazers have already seen five different players connect from long-range, including a perfect 4-for-4 performance so far by Damian Lillard. Let's hope they cool down -- and their trigger happy ways don't infect Josh Smith.

That's all for now, enjoy the second half: This is your GameThread.
