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.”
