At the end of the second half, the Pistons were 1-for-7 in the last five minutes with three turnovers. The Pistons scored 32 combined points in those quarters and were outscored by the final difference.

Detroit shot 36-percent for the game and was beat on the boards 49-42. The Sixers shot 46-percent and assisted on 23 of their 36 baskets.

Greg Monroe was the leader for the Pistons, scoring 22 points on 8-of-16 shooting and grabbing seven rebounds. Spencer Hawes led the way for the Sixers with 16 points, 14 rebounds, and four assists.

Pistons Vs. 76ers Score Update: Philadelphia Leading Shorthanded Detroit At Half By 9

The Detroit Pistons are playing without two of their starters, Rodney Stuckey and Ben Gordon, and saw their replacements, Brandon Knight and Austin Daye, limp off the floor before the half. If they can't return, the Pistons would be down to nine players for the second half.

The Pistons trail by nine, but hung tough with the Sixers, despite playing shorthanded and shooting poorly. The Pistons shot 36-percent in the first half and did not make a single three-pointer in four tries. The 76ers shot 43-percent and were led by Lou Williams' 11 points off the bench.

Detroit was led by Greg Monroe, who put up 13 points on 5-for-8 shooting and added four rebounds. Knight and Daye were a combined 4-for-16 shooting in place of Stuckey and Gordon before limping off with apparent ankle injuries near the end of the first half.
