Washington
Detroit

[DETROIT] — The Detroit Pistons played host to the Washington Wizards last night and Pistons fans will wish that they could have another crack at this one. The narrow 101-105 defeat was and still is a tough one to swallow. The loss bumps Detroit's record down to 37-44 on the season, while the victory gives Washington a 49-32 total on the year. It's not overly surprising that the Pistons would end up losing this one consider they did little to establish themselves as dangerous threats. Perhaps the showing can serve as an essential building block for the team in the days to come.

While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Bradley Beal's 33 points, 2 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 blocks and 0 steals in 33 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Most importantly, the Wizards managed to prevail where it mattered most and will happily add another victory to their season total. So long as Beal keeps producing at this rate and Washington 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, Tobias Harris did walk away with the small consolation of an attractive 22 points, 5 rebounds and 2 assists. Whether another bright individual performance can help them get the result they want on the scoreboard next time, however, remains to be seen.

Individual performances aside, if there's one area where the Pistons can improve, it's on the defensive side of the ball. Though Detroit wasn't terrible in the ball game, there's no denying that a stricter focus on limiting their opponents could serve them well the next time they collide with a worthy foe.

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