The Detroit Pistons’ modest two-game winning streak ended Sunday with a 100-86 loss against the Chicago Bulls at Little Caesars Arena.

While the Pistons started off on the right foot and set the pace, their energy deflated by the end of the first half. Detroit looked lethargic Detroit Pistons Jerseys China compared to its previous two games, which resulted in wins over the Toronto Raptors and Houston Rockets.

Here are some takeaways.

Pistons can’t contain Bulls from deep: The Pistons allowed the Bulls to shoot 50 percent from three. It’s the second time Cheap Isaiah Stewart Jersey this season that an opponent has made 50 percent or more of their shots from three.

The Bulls started the night making two of their three shot attempts from deep in the first quarter. They sunk four more in the second as they chipped away at the small lead the Pistons had carved out in the first quarter. The Pistons allowed the Bulls to take a one-point lead heading into halftime and then go on an 8-2 run coming out of the break.

“I thought we did a lot of good stuff with playing defense, all the way down to the end of the clock, and we’d let them get into Cheap Frank Jackson Jersey the lane and then they make that kick -out pass late and it results in a three, and open shot,” Pitons center Isaiah Stewart said.

Tyler Cook vocal and present: The newest member of the Pistons has played just two games since signing a 10-day contract, but he has made his presence felt. Cook played just nine minutes but was vocal and communicated well with his new teammates.

The 23-year-old also put himself in a spot to score. Just into the second quarter, Cook positioned himself under the basket following a block from Stewart. Frank Jackson grabbed the rebound and found Cook before the Cheap Tyler Cook Jersey ball was knocked out of bounds.

Cook should have roughly seven days remaining on his contract, so he has two more games to impress the team since the Pistons have an available roster spot.

Nine-turnover third quarter shifts game: The Pistons committed eight turnovers in the third, four of which came within the first four minutes. Chicago turned Detroit’s nine turnovers into eight points as it went on to outscore the Pistons 29-20.

The Pistons were down just one point heading into the half, but starting the third quarter off poorly, dug themselves into an 11-point deficit halfway through the third. Though Detroit staved off Chicago’s pressure, it eventually caved as the Bulls stretched the lead to 20 points in the fourth.

“That was the turning point, and it seemed like they scored on each and every one,” Pistons coach Dwane Casey said. “So, I thought that was a turning point but it started right before the third quarter, the energy level, the focus, intensity, definitely our shooting went south, wide-open shots that we were just making two nights ago. So, again, two steps forward, one step back.”

I liked him entering Dennis Smith Jr. Jersey the draft, but since

The Detroit Pistons finally have people talking.

Last month I was driving around Troy, Michigan listening to the Karsch and Anderson show on the radio. Usually, in February they aren’t talking about Custom Detroit Pistons Jerseys anything sports-related, but this day was different.

Derrick Rose was gone, Dennis Smith Jr was in. The news was interesting and unexpected, as he was an asset I failed to consider.

RELATED STORY: Could Jerami Grant be traded to the Celtics?
Smith was not a player I had given much Cheap Derrick Rose Jersey thought to. At NC State he was one of the most fun and explosive players in the NCAA, and I liked him entering the draft, but since he had Cheap Jerami Grant Jersey largely been forgotten.

His career got off to a rocky and slow start. He spent two and half seasons in New York, and his numbers dropped. However, could Detroit be the Cheap Dennis Smith Jr. Jersey place for a rebirth for the high-flying highlight maker?

I say yes.

Detroit Pistons: Starter or role player? Smith can be a contributor
Smith Jr. is probably not headed to Cheap Killian Hayes Jersey the Hall of Fame in ten years but that doesn’t mean he can’t be a solid contributor or even more.

Let’s look at the stat lines. Over his stint with the Knicks, he averaged under nine points on about 37 percent shooting. Not great.

But what could he do if put in the right situation? The Knicks are not known for developing young talent (sorry Kevin Knox and Frank Ntilikina fans), so the black hole of Manhattan was not the ideal environment.

Hit the rewind button.

In his rookie year with Dallas, Smith was one of the primary ball handlers. He put good numbers: 15 points, five assists, four rebounds, and a steal in 30 minutes of play. Two notable players put up similar numbers in their rookie year: Ja Morant (18pts/4reb/7ast) and Russell Westbrook (15pts/5reb/5ast).

It is not realistic to say that Smith will be as good of a player as those two. One is an emerging superstar and one may end up in the Hall of Fame. It is an incredibly high ceiling. But if Smith gets anywhere close to those numbers, Cheap Dennis Smith Jersey the trade will have been well worth it.

Smith has had a rough couple of years, but already his numbers are up since joining the Detroit Pistons. He has shot 35 percent from 3-point range (still not great) and has added a defensive element the Pistons were missing on the perimeter.

If Killian Hayes lives up to his draft pick and Smith even comes close to his ceiling, the Pistons could have one of the better young backcourts in the East.

Smith is on the final year of his contract and can probably be re-signed to a team-friendly deal, so if he ends up bottoming out as a pine rider, it won’t cost the Pistons much, so for a guy with his potential it is a risk worth taking.

I’ve watched some of Smith’s highlights from Dallas and NC State, and I think he could be a solid starter or Sixth Man of the Year contender, which is not a bad ceiling for a guy that the Detroit Pistons did not have to give up much to get.

It can’t be ruled out that he still has the potential to grow into a legitimate star, but realistically he’ll be a solid and flashy guard for years to come. I’ll miss Derrick Rose, but it was a good trade.

accumulated Cheap Rodney McGruder Jersey a six-point lead

With the Detroit Pistons missing Jerami Grant, and Josh Jackson and the Toronto Raptors without Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam, OG Anunoby, and others due to health and safety protocols, the battle was over who had the Cheap Sekou Doumbouya Jersey deeper roster. And Detroit won convincingly.

The Pistons started the game slowly, but that lasted only a few minutes. By the end of the first quarter, Detroit had Cheap Wayne Ellington Jersey put up 43 points and accumulated a six-point lead. And they never looked back.

Detroit outworked Toronto all night long and were Cheap Jerami Grant Jersey fueled by a remarkably balanced attack offensively. Nowhere was that more evident than Detroit’s sharing of the ball. Detroit made 48 shots on the night and a remarkable 40 of them were assisted. It was the first time Detroit had notched 40 assists since 2008.

The scoring leader was Wayne Ellington, who was en fuego, scoring 25 points on only 11 shots. More importantly, his performance gave us Cheap Josh Jackson Jersey a reason to bring back this work of art from the legendary Chris Daniels:

Both Dennis Smith Jr. and Mason Plumlee ended the game with triple-doubles. Yes, you read that correctly. Smith had 10 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists, and set an aggressive tone all night. Plumlee had 14 points, 11 rebounds and Cheap Saben Lee Jersey 10 assists, with much of the offense running through him at the elbow, and Toronto had no answers all night.

Svi Mykhailiuk was thrust into the starting lineup and rewarded Dwane Casey with 17 points on 5-9 shooting from deep, a shooting performance that Cheap Rodney McGruder Jersey had to be a relief for the third-year shooting guard.

Rodney McGruder took many of Svi’s bench minutes at the two and provided value in all kinds of different ways, ending the game with 20 points, six assists, and two steals. Saben Lee joined McGruder off the bench and put together yet Cheap Mason Plumlee Jersey another good performance, looking in complete control all night.

Norman Powell tried to keep the Raptors in it, but his 36 points weren’t nearly enough.

In all, the Pistons reminded us how successful Wholesale Detroit Pistons Jerseys team basketball and extra effort can be from night to night in the league. They continued their trend of getting to a ton of loose balls, outworking their opponent on the glass, and moving both the ball and their bodies with high levels of intensity.

The talent level obviously isn’t there, but Dwane Casey has his team consistently playing hard and making winning plays. That is a recipe for success for a franchise looking to build a successful culture.

Other Thoughts:
Plumlee running the offense at the top of the circle was extremely successful with shooters around him. It keeps him out of long post-ups and takes advantage of his best skills. It may be a good way to get Jerami Grant out of Detroit Pistons Jerseys China his shooting slump.
Sekou Doumbouya had a couple nice plays at the rim, but he continues to struggle from three. To my eye, his shooting stroke actually looks better. But, it might take him some time to figure that out if he’s making mechanical adjustments.
Give me this team that competes like crazy every day over the iterations we’ve seen over the past few years.
This game was so out of hand at the end that Deividas Sirvydas even got three minutes.
