Pistons Fall in Home Finale to Raptors
In the final home game of the season yesterday the Detroit Pistons (38-43) blew a big halftime lead to end up losing 108-98 to the Eastern Conference-leading Toronto Raptors (59-22) as the Pistons had no answer for Jonas Valanciunas without Andre Drummond on the floor.
That’s all for the inaugural season at @LCA_Detroit. Thank you for your support this season!

Andre Drummond joined Blake Griffin and Reggie Bullock on the bench for this game and his presence was missed sorely as Valanciunas went for 25 points and 9 rebounds in just 25 minutes.
Reggie Jackson has apparently been sick over the last few days and he once again looked like it, he scraped together 16 points and 9 assists but was ineffective attacking the hoop and looked a step slow on defense.
Luke Kennard turned in another good game by scoring 20 points in a flurry of impressive shooting and Ish Smith scored 15 points while missing just one shot from the floor.
The Pistons will close out the season in Chicago tomorrow.
