Greg Monroe had a big night for Detroit, but didn't have much help against a more well-rounded Toronto team.
The Detroit Pistons' losing streak continued on Wednesday night, losing, 97-91, to the Toronto Raptors on the road. The loss was the Pistons' sixth straight, with their last win coming over 10 days ago. Greg Monroe had 35 points and 10 rebounds in a valiant losing effort, but got little in the way of support from his teammates.
Rodney Stuckey was the only other Piston to score in double figures, ending with 13 points. Kyle Singler and Tayshaun Prince each had nine points. Poor shooting did in the Pistons, as they shot 41.7% from the floor as a team, and only 25% from three-point range. They actually outrebounded the Raptors, 44-33, but it wasn't enough to put them ahead.
The Pistons play again on Friday night, when they return home to face the Washington Wizards.
