New Orleans
Detroit

[DETROIT] — The Detroit Pistons played host to the New Orleans Pelicans last night but don't think that the home cooking gave them any sort of advantage. The 86-109 loss has the Pistons and their fans cringing as they brace for their next opportunity to redeem themselves. The loss bumps Detroit's record down to 29-32 on the season, while the victory gives New Orleans a 24-37 total on the year. Disappointing from the opening tip, the Pistons did little to convince anyone that they deserved anything more than a big fat L in this one. Suffice it to say, they'll have plenty to talk about over the next few days.

An impressive performance from Anthony Davis led all players in the contest and his 33 points, 14 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 blocks and 0 steals in 36 minutes will make many-a-fantasy owner proud. Most importantly, the Pelicans managed to prevail where it mattered most and will happily add another victory to their season total. So long as Davis keeps producing at this rate and New Orleans keeps winning ball games, everybody - from fantasy owners to the team coaching and executive staff - will be more than satisfied.

Though Detroit didn't end up getting it done when it mattered most, Jon Leuer did walk away with the small consolation of an attractive 22 points, 7 rebounds and 1 assists. Whether another bright individual performance can help them get the result they want on the scoreboard next time, however, remains to be seen.

At the end of the day, the homeside was beaten down in a performance that they stood little chance of winning. If there's one thing any coach will offer a team coming off of a loss like this one it's that success hinges on a better defensive output. Not only did the Pellies take advantage of Detroit, they managed to put forth an offensive outburst far in excess of their season average. Detroit knows this - as would any other NBA squad in their position, so don't be surprised if the Pistons end up running plenty of laps after this one.

The loss hurts for the homeside but they'll get their opportunity to regain ground in a pending matchup with the . The Pelicans, meanwhile, will set their sights on a run-in with the .
