Pistons lose 121-100 to Knicks

Still looking for their first back-to-back wins of the season, the Detroit Pistons lost, 121-100, to the New York Knicks on Sunday afternoon at Madison Square Garden. It's the third time this season that Detroit has failed to be victorious in the game directly following a win.

Things looked dire for the Pistons right from the start as the Knicks finished the first quarter on a 14-4 run to take a double-digit lead in the second quarter. Detroit responded by beginning the second with a 7-0 run to trim New York's lead to 32-29, but things unraveled from there as the Knicks finished the half on a 26-10 run.

Trailing by 20 points going into the second half against one of the league's better teams, the Pistons unsurprisingly couldn't muster a comeback. They did manage to cut New York's lead to nine points at one point in the third quarter, but the Knicks promptly expanded the lead back into double-digits.

The Pistons shot a solid 47 percent from the field, but they struggled with turnovers and couldn't withstand New York's barrage of three-pointers. The Knicks drained 17 of 33 (52 percent) from long range during the game in addition to knocking down 28 of 31 attempts from the charity stripe.

Brandon Knight led Detroit scorers with 21 points on 8-of-13 shooting, while Charlie Villanueva and Kyle Singler added 17 and 16, respectively. Carmelo Anthony led all scorers with 29 points, including four three-pointers.
