Detroit's struggles on the road continued Monday as the Pistons lost to the 76ers, 104-97, in Philadelphia.

After trailing 25-21 at the end of the first quarter, the Pistons used a strong second quarter to take a 49-46 halftime lead. Brandon Knight scored all seven of his first-half points during the second quarter. Tayshaun Prince, Greg Monroe and Rodney Stuckey scored in double figures during in the first half.

Unfortunately for the Pistons, the lead didn't last long. The 76ers opened the second half on a 14-0 run to take a 60-49 lead. Detroit was able to mount a run of its own and trailed by just one point going into the fourth quarter. A Knight basket put the Pistons up 80-78 with 10 minutes to play, but that would be the last time the Pistons led. Philadelphia took the lead back and made its free throws down the stretch to hang on for the win.

Knight and Monroe each scored 22 points to lead the Pistons. Jason Maxiell finished with 11 rebounds, but made just 1 of 10 shots and scored just two points. Stuckey scored 19 points off the bench for Detroit. Philadelphia's Jrue Holiday led all scorers with 25 points.
