The Pistons started off right. They scored 29 points in the first quarter on 53-percent shooting and led by four. They even went to Greg Monroe on the first offensive possession of the game.
The Pistons shot 39 percent and scored 59 points in the final three quarters. Greg Monroe took only three shots (!!!) in the game.
After managing to cut the game to four heading into the fourth, the Pistons were Ersan Ilyasova'd. The Turkish sharpshooter scored 10 of his 22 in the first three and a half minutes of the final quarter and the Pistons had no response.
The Pistons shot 26 percent on three pointers and missed 11 free throws (56 percent). The Pistons turned it over 14 times and Josh 'Don't Even Get Me Started' Smith had six of them.
Unfortunately, the blow out will overshadow another monster game from Andre Drummond, who had 26 points and 20 rebounds.
We'll have more on this game in a minute.
