Progress! The Pistons may have lost their sixth straight game, but at least they didn't lose by double digits like their last five. Nope, it was only nine this time, 102-93.
However, like the other five, the Pistons were never really in it. Sure, they were only down a point in the second half, but any hint of a comeback by the Pistons was met with a demoralizing run by the Bucks.
Steven Jackson and Brandon Jennings were a big reason the Bucks wound up handing the Pistons their sixth straight chalk in the L column. They finished with a combined 52 points on 18-32 shooting, nine assists, and four steals.
Once again, Greg Monroe proved to be the bright spot for the Pistons. He finished with 32 points and 16 rebounds, the first time a Piston has accumulated that many points and rebounds since Grant Hill did it in 1997. Rookie Brandon Knight added 20 points on just nine shots.
Both teams broke an NBA record for most free throws made without a miss with 41.
The Pistons will attempt to snap their six-game streak tomorrow night against the Bobcats.
