The Detroit Pistons (29-32) got their first win since the all-star break by beating a tired Milwaukee Bucks team (33-28) at home.

The Pistons got good contributions from all over, Stanley Johnson put in 19 points off the bench, Eric Moreland had a double-double, Reggie Bullock had 16. The defensive effort, in particular, was much better than the last three games.
Giannis Antetounmpo was largely held in check by the Pistons as Stanley Johnson, James Ennis, and Anthony Tolliver all fought him hard into finishing with just 11 points. Eric Bledsoe led the Bucks with 19 points.
The Pistons pulled away in the third quarter before dominating the fourth where the Bucks needed nearly ten minutes of play to record their first successful field goal.
The Pistons will have a day off before going to Orlando to play the hapless Magic, while the Bucks also have a day off before playing the Pacers.
