After capturing the hearts of Pistons fans across the nation following three straight wins, Detroit failed to keep up their winning ways when they landed in the nation’s capital Friday night. The Pistons trailed for most of the second half after Washington outscored them 35-15 in the third quarter. The final score of the game was 109-91.
Andre Drummond had 14 points, 17 rebounds, and seven assists for Detroit. However, the Pistons were still manhandled on the glass as they were outrebounded 49-32. Tobias Harris led the Pistons in scoring with 15 points.
“It was a team effort, for sure,” Detroit coach Stan Van Gundy exclaimed. “Every guy that played, played poorly.”
Andre Drummond suggested the team’s poor performance was due to Washington’s physicality up front. “We are not used to having an entire team crash the offensive glass,” he said. “We didn’t do a good job of adjusting to that throughout the game.”
The Pistons are hoping to rebound from this pitiful performance tonight when they take on the 76ers in Philadelphia. The game starts at 7:30pm ET on Fox Sports Detroit.
