#8: Detroit Pistons vs. Chicago Bulls, March 8, 2019: 21 points

In what has been a theme so far, the Pistons fell behind early against a rival and found themselves down by 21 points before the first half was over.

But the second half was a different story, as the Pistons held the Bulls to just 14 points in the 3rd quarter and then scored an impressive 43 points in the 4th to close out an eight-point win after being down more than 20.

The Alpha Ginger Blake Griffin led the way with 27 points, but this was Andre Drummond's night, as he had 20 points, 24 rebounds, two blocks and two steals. We are now to the point where Drummond's career is underrated, as he is nearing some milestones that put him in the Hall of Fame discussion.

The Pistons got a big boost from the bench in this one, as Luke Kennard and Langston Galloway combined for 29 points on 5-of-7 shooting from long range.

#7: Detroit Pistons vs. Denver Nuggets: February 2, 2020: 21 points

This is one of the wildest on the list, as the Pistons went down 31-10 in the first quarter against the Nuggets before eventually winning in overtime.

The two swapped blowouts in the 1st and 2nd quarters and then played even the rest of the way, with Nikola Jokic dropping a 39-point triple-double on Detroit.

The Pistons got 21 points and 17 rebounds from Andre Drummond (who has been involved in all of these so far) and 17 points from Sekou Doumbouya (yep), who got the start and played 35 minutes.

But it was the bench that saved the Pistons in this one, as Bruce Brown (sigh) and Reggie Jackson combined for 39 points in the Pistons' big comeback.
