Pistons Vs. Raptors Final Score: Detroit Falls 103-93 For Second Straight Loss

The Detroit Pistons have now lost two in a row, their second coming against an even lowlier Toronto Raptors squad on Wednesday night, raising questions as to whether the three-game winning streak preceding Tuesday's loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers was simply a mirage. Greg Monroe had 30 points, 12 coming from the free throw line, but the Pistons could not keep pace for 48 minutes, losing 103-93 on the road.

The Raptors shot 52.6 percent from the field, and held a 47-37 rebounding advantage over the Pistons to record just their 10th win of the season, and first in five games. They never trailed after the 6:11 mark of the first period, expanding their lead to 14 points in the second quarter before taking a 53-45 lead into halftime. The Pistons pulled within three points midway through the third, but the Raptors promptly went on an 11-2 run to effectively shut the door on Detroit.

DeMar DeRozan led the way with 23 points and seven rebounds for the game. Aaron Gray pitched in a double-double, grabbing 12 rebounds to go along with 12 points. Jose Calderon had 15 assists to make up for a 1-for-4 performance from the field. On the Pistons end, Brandon Knight had 16 points but had an off night from beyond 3-point arc, going 2-for-8. Tayshaun Prince had 14 points and seven rebounds.
