Much like their meeting last week, the Bulls and Pistons played tight until halftime. This time, it was the Pistons that ran away in the second half.
Detroit dominated the third quarter and never looked back. Brandon Jennings brought plenty of SWAG in the fourth, scoring 15 of his game high 33 points.
With Luol Deng out, the Bulls went with a big starting lineup with Taj Gibson opening the game. Neither team could manage much in the paint, as both teams' big men struggled. Andre Drummond, Greg Monroe, and Josh Smith all had double figure rebounds, but none cracked double figures in the scoring column.
Taj Gibson led the way for Chicago with 21 points and 10 rebounds, but both Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer struggled mightily.
What stood out:
The perimeter shooting showed up for the Pistons as they hit 12 of 19 three pointers, including five from Jennings. Kyle Singler continued his hot shooting, offering 12 points on only five shots including 2 of 3 on three pointers. Josh Harrellson is quickly making Charlie Villanueva obsolete with 10 points in 13 minutes, including 2 of 2 from three.
- Rodney Stuckey left the game in the first half after bumping knees and didn't return.
- Despite the blowout win, Luigi Datome and Tony Mitchell did not find any minutes.
- Josh Smith did not do any favors to his field goal percentage, shooting 2-11. He also had five turnovers.
