After losing tonight’s game 89-97, the Detroit Pistons are on a six game losing streak falling to 7-21 on the season.

A close game early, Greg Monroe had a season high 35 points going 14-22 on the field. Rodney Stuckey added 13 points going 5-12 with 4 assists.  Despite Stuckey and Monroe being the only players in double figures, the Pistons only shot 25% from the 3-point line (3-12) and had 10 turn overs.

However the Raptors were clicking on all cylinders. Jose Calderon’s 17 assists were a big part of the Raptors success. Along with four players in double figures, Demar Derozan’s 23 points and former MSU players Alan Anderson’s 12 points in the 4th quarter points helped them pull away.

The Pistons did manage to cut an 11 point deficit in the 2nd half, bringing it within four points but the Raptors were too much. Alan Anderson knocking down multiple three’s gave the raptors a late lead.

The Pistons are still on the road as they go to Washington to face the Wizards Friday and Saturday.
