The Pistons got off to a red hot start on both ends of the court, putting up 37 first quarter points and holding the Raptors to just 14 in the opening period. Detroit's defense has been stifling, holding the struggling Raptors to just 33.3 percent from the field and only 2-10 from beyond the three point line.
