Pistons lose close battle with Golden State, fall 119-113
In a tight battle with the best team in the NBA, the Detroit Pistons came up on the wrong end of a back-and-forth affair.
Detroit played a strong defensive game, forcing 23 turnovers, which was a season high for the Bay Area squad. Off of those turnovers came 33 points for the Pistons.
Tobias Harris scored a season high of 26 points coming off of the bench for the first time this season, and was followed by Kentavious Caldwell-Pope who put up 25.
The Pistons were beat on numerous possessions off the ball, as Golden State was able to wow the crowd with spectacular movement. A slew of backdoor cuts proved to be the downfall for the Motor City.
The Pistons also struggled on the glass, allowing plenty of second chance opportunities for the Warriors. Stan Van Gundy did appreciate his team’s effort regardless.
The Pistons will host another great team, the Cavaliers, on Monday.
