Pistons Vs. Jazz Final Score: Detroit Loses 9th Straight In Utah, 105-90

The Detroit Pistons were flirting with their first win in Utah in a long time, but a really poor finish to the fourth quarter cost them their ninth straight in the Salt Lake City. The Jazz outscored the Pistons in the final five minutes 18-3 for a 105-90 win, ending the Pistons' three-game winning streak.

Detroit missed nine free throws (19-for-28) and allowed Utah to shoot 54-percent in the 15-point loss. Al Jefferson, who scored a game high 33 points, scored 11 during that final run to give the Jazz the win.

Jefferson dominated the PIstons' front court, particularly Greg Monroe. Jefferson had 12 rebounds to go along with his 33 points on 14-for-18 shooting. Monroe finished with 14 points on 5-for-12 shooting and just five rebounds.

Rodney Stuckey was the Pistons' leading scorer with 29 points on 10-for-17 shooting. He also had seven dimes.

The Pistons are now 3-16 on the road and stay on the road for eight of their next 11 games. They play again on Wednesday in Sacramento against the Kings.
