Pistons vs. Knicks final score: Detroit miscues, lack of intensity spoil Jaden and Jalen’s debut

The Detroit Pistons learned a hard lesson during the 117-96 loss at the hands of the feisty New York Knicks. No matter all the new talent you bring in, the ways players have grown their games, and all the new schematic wrinkles you’re excited to introduce — nobody is going to give it to you.

Especially not a team with plenty of talent, and especially especially not a team coached by Tom Thibodeau. The Knicks, led by marquee offseason acquisition Jalen Brunson were in midseason form in game one of the preaseason while the Pistons were disjointed, a step slow and careless with the ball.
