The Pistons are currently riding one of their worst five-game losing streaks in their franchise's history and have their first real shot to end that streak and pick up a win on the road for the first time this season on Thursday night against the 3-6 Bucks.
Rodney Stuckey, who missed the last four games due to a groin injury, provided the Pistons some lift off the bench (six points, two assists, and two rebounds), but Detroit remained inconsistent and turnover happy in the first half, trailing for all of it.
The Pistons cut the score to one with a little over two minutes left in the second quarter, but the Bucks finished the quarter on a 11-5 run, capped off by former Piston Carlos Delfino's buzzer beater, which put the Bucks up nine, 52-43, going into the locker rooms.
Rookie Brandon Knight is the game's leading scorer with 15 points. Greg Monroe has 10 points and seven rebounds.
