The Detroit Pistons were run off the floor by the Washington Wizards 126-107 in a battle of the only two-win teams remaining in the NBA. Washington entered on a nine-game losing streak while Detroit stretches its losing streak to 14 games. The worst part for Detroit is that it was blindingly obvious who the better team was tonight, and it wasn’t the Pistons.
After the first quarter, the only Little Caesars Arena wasn’t absolutely silent was when the frustrated hometown fans decided they’d had enough and booed the Pistons.
Detroit had previously had a players-only meeting, but no conversations among players is going to turn a roster full of non-shooters into dangerous marksmen.
