The Detroit Pistons entered the weekend 8 games under .500 and exited the weekend 8 games under .500 after going 1-1 over two games. The one win was a 104-97 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers while the loss was a narrow defeat at the hands of the Chicago Bulls, 108-104.
The Pistons had opportunities to win on Friday night over the Bulls but could not get over the hump and hold the lead. Chicago's Joakim Noah dominated Detroit's frontline, putting up 30 points, 23 rebounds, 6 assits, two blocks and two steals in what was undoubtedly one of the best games of his career. Rodney Stuckey chipped in with 24 points, but a lackluster third quarter doomed Detroit.
Against the Cavs, though, it was the Pistons who were the benefactors of a career night. That game from Brandon Knight, who knifed through Cleveland's decimated backcourt for a career high 30 points, to which he added seven rebounds and five assists. That was just enough to put Detroit on top for their seventh win of the season.
