Two days after breaking their six game losing streak the Detroit Pistons returned to the loss column by fading in the second half against the Golden State Warriors. David Lee had 24 points and Monta Ellis added 22 as Detroit blew a second half lead in a 99-91 loss. It was Golden State's first road victory of the season, while Detroit fell to 2-5 at the Palace of Auburn Hills.
