The Detroit Pistons went down to the wire against the Brooklyn Nets and came out with the 113-109 victory. Eric Black gives you the three main takeaways.
The Detroit Pistons Pistons were absolutely decimated by injuries tonight and yet they still managed to scrape by with the victory 113-109 over the Brooklyn Nets.
The Pistons were on a second half of a back-to-back and they had their work cut out for them. Every point guard on the roster was out and the news of Reggie Jackson‘s absence for another month easily could have demoralized this team.
Detroit started out hot, then cooled off considerably in the second quarter only to take control back in the third after a 20-2 run and didn’t let go. With both teams playing their second half of a back-to-back, the Nets appeared to be out of steam near the end of third, but made this a nail biter at the end.
Even though the Pistons won, there were plenty of things that this team needs to work on. But first, let’s celebrate what went right.
