Detroit was playing shorthanded and it actually showed at the end of each half, not just the fourth quarter. In the first half, the Pistons shot 2-for-10 in the final three minutes and saw their two replacement starters limp off the court. 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.

The Pistons are back at the Palace tomorrow night to face the Knicks.
