The Detroit Pistons welcome Bojan Bogdanovic back to the lineup, and he greeted his teammates with a 22-point performance, including three three-pointers. Alas, it wasn’t enough to end the Pistons’ franchise-record losing streak, as they fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers 110-101.
While Bojan delivered exactly as expected, the Pistons still have glaring deficiencies. They couldn’t generate any offense off the bench aside from Bogdanovic, and the Cavs were able to go on extended runs if both Bogdanovic and Cade Cunningham were taking a breather.
While you have to be careful with plus-minus, I’d say that Marcus Sasser (16 minutes off the bench) and Isaiah Livers (14 minutes off the bench) being -21 and -22 were a perfect encapsulation of what went wrong for the Pistons tonight.
