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.”

Behind a strong offensive night from guard Frank Jackson, on a two-way contract, the Detroit Pistons got their second consecutive win.

Jackson scored 23 points Friday and hit all five of his 3-point attempts, and the Pistons (12-29) defeated the Houston Rockets, 113-100. Jackson logged his second Wholesale Detroit Pistons Jerseys start in a row and is making Cheap Ben Wallace Jersey the most of his opportunity.

Saddiq Bey scored 20 points and grabbed six rebounds, and Jerami Grant added 18 points. John Wall led the Rockets Cheap Christian Wood Jersey with 21 points and ex-Piston Christian Wood had a double-double.

Frank Jackson delivers season-best performance
Both of Detroit’s two-way players have Cheap Wayne Ellington Jersey received opportunities this season, but they were harder to come by for Jackson. Unlike Saben Lee, Jackson is better suited as a shooting guard. And the Pistons are much deeper there than at point guard, with Killian Hayes still a few weeks away Cheap Jerami Grant Jersey from returning.

With Wayne Ellington, Rodney McGruder and Hamidou Diallo all nursing injuries this week, Jackson finally broke into the starting lineup, making his first start Wednesday against the Raptors. Friday was easily his Cheap Killian Hayes Jersey best performance.

Jackson’s perfect performance from beyond the arc was a major accomplishment, considering his outside shooting has been a weakness in the NBA. He immediately launched his fourth 3-pointer midway through the third quarter Cheap Saben Lee Jersey without bringing the ball down first, a sign of a confident, comfortable shooter. He’s 7-for-12 from 3 this week, after going 4-for-13 Cheap Rodney McGruder Jersey in his first nine games of the season.

It remains to be seen how far Jackson’s momentum carries him. It’s unclear when Diallo will return, but the third-year guard was in the midst of his best season as a pro with the Oklahoma City Thunder this season before suffering a groin injury and being traded. Ellington and McGruder will also Cheap Frank Jackson Jersey eventually return, but the former appears to be a strong trade candidate going into the March 25 deadline. Regardless of how the rotation plays out from here, Jackson is showing that he belongs.

Wood delivers familiar performance
Entering the offseason, Wood was one of the Pistons’ top targets in free agency after the big man’s breakout season in Detroit. Ultimately, Grant was a Cheap Hamidou Diallo Jersey bigger priority for Detroit, and Wood landed with the Rockets on a three-year, $41 million deal.

After missing 17 games with a sprained ankle, Friday was Wood’s second game back. He showcased his wide offensive repertoire and finished with 18 points and 11 rebounds, shooting 8-for-14 overall.

AUBURN HILLS – Toronto is taking the Lawrence O’Brien Trophy to Canada for one overriding reason: the 15th pick. If it hadn’t been the Raptors, it might have been Milwaukee to end Golden State’s reign and for the same reason: the 15th pick. Toronto’s Kawhi Leonard and Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo were both 15th picks two years apart, Leonard in 2011 and Antetokounmpo in ’13. Two-time MVP Steve Nash was the 15th pick in 1996.

Nobody else comes close to their class, though, among the 65 players drafted 15th overall since the NBA began seeding rosters via an amateur draft. Perhaps Al Jefferson
is the next most accomplished player, though he never made an All-Star team.

The Pistons have had the No. 15 pick four times in their history. Cheap Rodney Stuckey Jersey (2007) made the most immediate impact and probably wound up having the best career, though Phil Hubbard (1979), a great college player at Michigan before a catastrophic knee injury after his sophomore season, has a case.

The others taken with the 15th pick by the Pistons are Cheap Al Eberhard Jersey, back in 1974, and Cheap Austin Daye Jersey in 2009.

Last year’s 15th pick was Troy Brown, who played sparingly for the Washington Wizards. Brown profiles as the type of player most likely to be the pick of the Pistons this year: a teen with one year of college experience and little expectation of offering significant immediate help.

The four No. 15 picks prior to Brown were Justin Jackson, traded from Sacramento to Dallas in February, who shows promise as a rotation player heading into his third season after a three-year career at North Carolina; Juan Hernangomez, who’s shown flashes of promise but has yet to establish himself as part of Denver’s rotation in three NBA seasons; Kelly Oubre, who’ll be a restricted free agent after being traded from Washington to Phoenix at the trade deadline; and Adreian Payne, out of the NBA after being drafted by Minnesota out of Michigan State.

Our draft preview series continues today with a profile of Kentucky freshman guard Tyler Herro.

FIRST-ROUND CANDIDATE: Tyler Herro

ID CARD: 6-foot-6 guard, Kentucky, 19 years old

DRAFT RANGE: Ranked 18th by ESPN.com, 20th by The Athletic, 15th by SI.com

SCOUTS LOVE: Herro’s a bucket getter. That’s his calling card. It’s not all there is to his game, but that’s what will get him drafted in the first round – perhaps in the lottery. Herro, a freshman out of Wisconsin, wasn’t necessarily considered a one-and-done recruit when he pledged to Kentucky – breaking a prior commitment to Wisconsin – as a four-star who wasn’t a McDonald’s All-American. If you squint, you can see shades of J.J. Redick in Herro with his cutting and his quick trigger on catch-and-shoot opportunities. It says something that on a team with three likely first-round picks – P.J. Washington and Keldon Johnson, like Herro, are both considered potential lottery picks – it was Herro who led Kentucky in minutes played per game at 32.6. Herro plays with a high motor and a chip on his shoulder, traits that will endear him to NBA personnel evaluators. Herro has been reported to be one of the players with an invitation to the NBA green room on draft night, a strong indication that he’ll be a top-20 pick, further evidence that feedback on him since the NBA draft combine from front offices has been positive.

SCOUTS WONDER: Herro didn’t go through athletic testing at the NBA draft combine, but he did subject himself to measurements. One raised something of a red flag: his wingspan of 6-foot-3¼. That raises concerns that he’ll be challenged to defend at an adequate level, though Herro’s competitiveness and apparent average athleticism might lessen the impact. Herro showed some potential as a secondary playmaker, averaging 2.5 assists per game, but his ability to finish off the dribble over outstretched arms is put in question by the wingspan numbers. Shot selection also requires some fine tuning. As pure as Herro’s stroke appears, his .355 3-point percentage last season doesn’t scream “elite.” Like a lot of players who identify as shooters, Herro might be prone to hunt shots to get himself going and let other areas of his game lag until his shot starts to fall.

NUMBER TO NOTE: 93.5 percent – That was Herro’s free-throw percentage at Kentucky, supporting the school of thought that Herro will become an elite NBA 3-point shooter once he acclimates to the speed of the game and his body matures.

MONEY QUOTE: “I think I can step in right now and shoot with the best of ’em. I can space the floor. I think teams, they haven’t seen me really play with the ball in my hands. I think I can score at all three levels and I’m going to compete. I’m tough and I’m going to be a good teammate.” – Tyler Herro, on how he can help an NBA team as a rookie, while at the NBA draft combine

PISTONS FIT: If there’s a position where the Pistons are a little crowded, it’s at shooting guard. Even if Cheap Luke Kennard Jersey winds up swinging mostly to small forward, the Pistons still have second-year players Cheap Bruce Brown Jersey, Cheap Khyri Thomas Jersey and Svi Mykhailiuk. Mykhailiuk’s size (6-foot-8) makes him a more viable candidate to guard small forwards, but there’s still something of a logjam at the position. Given Herro’s short wingspan, his defensive versatility might be limited. On the other hand, given the premium on 3-point shooting – and Herro shows the ability to shoot it off of movement as well as in more common catch-and-shoot situations – there would be plenty of appeal in taking potentially the best shooter in the draft with the 15th pick.

BOTTOM LINE: Herro’s competitiveness and potentially elite shooting range make him a candidate to be drafted ahead of projections. The outsized importance of the 3-point shot in today’s game, at a time when 36 percent of total field-goal attempts come from the arc, easily could influence a team’s draft model to push Herro ahead of a handful or more of prospects conventionally thought to be ranked ahead of him. A report after a workout for the Celtics – who have three No. 1 picks, including one at 14, a spot ahead of the Pistons – that included other potential lottery picks in Kevin Porter Jr. and Nickeil Alexander-Walker had Herro dazzling Boston, including making 80 percent of his 3-point shots in a drill. The fact Herro showed himself to be a good rebounder for his position and flashed secondary playmaking skills broadens his appeal.
