One of the most exciting games of the NBA season was played on Friday night, but unfortunately for Pistons fans, Detroit was on the wrong end of the final margin. Joe Johnson hit a buzzer beater as time expired to give the Nets a 107-105 double-overtime win over the Pistons in Brooklyn.
For Detroit, there were signs of hope against a quality team which currently sits fifth in the Eastern Conference standings.
Brandon Knight led all Pistons' scorers with 22 points to go along with five rebounds and five assists, while Greg Monroe added 17 points and eight rebounds as well. Former starting point guard Rodney Stuckey added 18 points off the bench for Detroit, which fell to 7-18 with the loss.
With the defeat on Friday night, the Pistons are now seven games back of Central Division leaders Chicago and Milwaukee. The Bulls and Bucks are each currently 12-9 on the season.
Detroit will next take the court on Saturday night when they host the Indiana Pacers at the Palace in Auburn Hills. Game-time is set for 7 p.m. CT.
