The Pistons win their fifth straight game, but perhaps the most memorable moment of the night was Andre Drummond getting into it with Quincy Acy.
As the third quarter was winding down, the Pistons controlled the game. They stretched their lead up to as much as 20 and the Nets aren’t exactly a franchise looking to close 20 point third quarter gaps.
Quincy Acy got physical with Andre Drummond battling for a rebound, and Drummond responded.
Acy, between starting the scuffle and his elbow at a ref, will almost certainly face a suspension. But it’ll be worth watching if Drummond loses a game or two as well. The Pistons are on a roll and face a Joel Embiid-less 76ers on Wednesday. And as he left Andre...
Bonus points if you can remember another time a Pistons related player went that route.
Without Drummond or Blake Griffin, the Pistons would have a tough time stopping Philly’s 10 game win streak.
That’s the bad news. The good news is that the Pistons continue to taunt all of our hopes by remaining in playoff contention as they beat up on bad teams. The key stat of the game was 12-43, which was what the Nets shot from three as they continued to launch irrepressibly from three despite little success.
It looked like it might be one of those games where Ish Smith makes Pistons fans regret Reggie Jackson, as Ish was on fire in the first half shooting 7-7 on his way to 17 points. But Jackson scored 21 second half points to even things out.
Stanley Johnson had himself a game, scoring 17 points on 6-11 shooting with 4 each on rebounds, assists, and steals.
