Detroit has a pretty poor history of winning games in Utah, but a lot of that history stems back to when Jerry Sloan was head coach. Sloan is no longer the coach in Utah, but the Pistons still find themselves a half away from another loss in the Salt Lake City, trailing by four, 52-48.
The Pistons shot 50-percent in the first half, led by Rodney Stuckey's 17 points on 7-for-11 shooting, but they allowed Utah to shoot 60-percent as a team.
Al Jefferson is having his way with the Pistons front court, scoring 16 points. Greg Monroe is struggling as a result, too, as he was just 1-for-5 in the first half.
