Pistons vs Nets final score: Dinwiddie gets revenge, drops Pistons 101-100

The Pistons castoff nailed a tough game winning floater to send Pistons to fifth straight loss.

After the Nets controlled the majority of the game, it looked like the Pistons might manage to sneak away with one.

The teams traded leads in the final minute, with the Pistons nearly managing to put it away with a Drummond layup that gave them a one point lead. But then Spencer Dinwiddie. The Pistons second round draft pick in the 2014 draft who the team gave up on after two lackluster seasons.

In the middle of a breakout season, this was probably one of the sweeter moments for Dinwiddie.

Ugh. That one hurts on multiple levels.

The Pistons continue their tailspin since the loss of Reggie Jackson, dropping their fifth game in a row and falling to 3-9 since Jackson went down.

The most important things of note for the Pistons were that Stanley Johnson and Luke Kennard were really good and Avery Bradley continues to be terrible at basketball.

Johnson scored 18 points, which is his highest point total in nearly two years. Kennard put up 13 points and was a reliable threat from deep. Meanwhile Bradley scored just 7 points on 3-12 shooting.

The Pistons are now a full game out of the playoff race and this season is starting to take on an “until the morale improves, the beatings will continue” type of feel.
