On the second game of a back-to-back, against the Eastern-Conference leading Milwaukee Bucks, it was difficult to imagine the Pistons coming out with a win tonight. And we were not surprised, as the Detroit Pistons fell, 104-90.

With no Blake Griffin, no Tony Snell, Langston Galloway (5-13) and Luke Kennard (3-11) really struggling from the field tonight, and a Milwaukee 17-3 run to open up the fourth quarter, your Detroit Pistons weren’t good enough to win.

But hey! Sekou Doumbouya and Jordan Bone played!

Sekou airballed his only shot, but Bone actually scored twice in his short time on the court.

In the “slightly encouraging” department, Bruce Brown Jr. made another three (!) and had three stocks in his 23 minutes, and Svi Mykhailiuk was two-of-five from three and still holding up defensively. Also, the Pistons only allowed 104 points to the Bucks - yeah, it wasn’t enough to win, but the Pistons’ defense had been bad and the Bucks had scored 135+ points in back-to-back games.

Those were my exact sentiments after watching tonight.

The Pistons play the Orlando Magic (who also lost tonight, to the Indiana Pacers) on Monday.
