Pistons Vs. Bulls Final: Detroit Stumbles Late In 100-94 Loss

The Detroit Pistons entered Sunday night's game with the Chicago Bulls 23 games behind their opponent in the standings and well out of the playoff chase. The Bulls have already locked up the NBA's Central Division and are trying to earn the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference with a three game lead over the Miami Heat after Miami's win earlier on Sunday.

Needless to say, an upset was unlikely, and the first place Bulls narrowly avoided one in a 100-94 win. Derrick Rose
sent the game to overtime with a three-pointer with six second left that made the score 86-86. From there, it was all Chicago, as the Bulls got a critical three-pointer from Kyle Korver with 1:24 left that put them in front 95-91. Korver also added a pair of free throws with 20 seconds left that expanded the lead to 99-94.

Rodney Stuckey had 32 points for the Pistons, but it was not enough.
