Pistons at Knicks final score: Detroit survives Michael Beasley’s 30-piece, win 115-109

The Pistons are now 5-1 since Reggie Jackson’s return

NBA: Detroit Pistons at New York Knicks Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

The Pistons won, 115-109, thanks to another great game from Andre Drummond (22 points, 17 rebounds, three blocks) and a superlative effort from their bench (James Ennis III, Eric Moreland, Luke Kennard, and Henry Ellenson all had a +9 plus/minus or better). Henry Ellenson, in particular, impressed in his time, with nine points, four rebounds, and three assists.

For the Knicks, Michael Beasley scored 32 points, and Trey Burke had 18 points and 15 (?!) assists. For the record, it did now feel like Trey Burke was diming guys up - a lot of those assists were Beasley hitting shots that you’ll live with most of the time. The Knicks are bad, but it is better to win a game against a bad team than to lose against one.

To the Timeline!

Yeah, that’s pretty much everything. See you tomorrow for the Brooklyn game on the second half of a back-to-back.
