Brooklyn
Detroit

[DETROIT] — The Detroit Pistons played host to the Brooklyn Nets last night and the hometown crowd got exactly what they paid for in the form of a hard-fought 90 to 89 Pistons victory. The win bumps Detroit's record up to 35-41 on the season, while the loss drags Brooklyn's down to 16-59. Despite the victory, the result is somewhat hollow considering the offense that seemed to lack much of the kick it's shown so far this season. The Pistons will happily take the boost in the win column, but have much work to do if they want to keep padding their portfolio.

While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Marcus Morris's 28 points, 13 rebounds, 0 assists, 2 blocks and 0 steals in 37 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Unfortunately for Morris, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Pistons. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get Brooklyn back in the win column before too long.

At the helm for the Pistons in the victory was Ish Smith and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Morris, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Smith posted 21 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists in the win.

Detroit's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Nets, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Pistons will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Pistons will be a date with the while the visiting Nets will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Philadelphia 76ers.
