The Pistons were not able to successfully complete the comeback against the Washington Wizards. They entered the fourth trailing by 10, but were able to make this game tight up until the final whistle.
Reggie Jackson led the Pistons with 21 points, and the combined efforts of he and Avery Bradley - on both ends of the court - almost gave the Pistons an unexpected win. Bradley finished the game with 18 points after struggling for the first three quarters of the game.
The Pistons played a solid game, but were doomed by a poor all-around third quarter. They do not have too much time to dwell on this one, as they will face the New York Knicks in New York tomorrow night.
