Pistons Vs. Bulls Final Score: Detroit Can't Reach .500, Lose 99-83

The Detroit Pistons were unable to reach .500 on Wednesday, as they were unable to overcome the 5-1 (now 6-1) Chicago Bulls. Chicago put together a very complete game, with multiple players contributing in a big way and not leaning on just one superstar to get things done. Detroit just wasn't able to keep up and guard everybody, and in the end, lost by a score of 99-83.

Carlos Boozer did lead the way for the Bulls, with 19 points, seven rebounds, three steals and two assists. He shot 9-for-15 on the day, while Derrick Rose shot 7-for-15, and missed all six of his three point attempts. For Detroit, it was Greg Monroe, who shot 8-for-15 on the night, and had 19 points, 13 rebounds, five assists and a block.

Moving to 6-1 on the season, the Bulls have now won five-straight games. They've got Orlando next, on Friday. Detroit was looking for .500 after winning two-straight games, but will now be looking to avoid a losing streak when they hit the road to take on the Philadelphia 76ers, also on Friday.
