What you need to know about the Pistons
The Pistons lost 117-89 to the the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday. Detroit was down 90-62 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. Shooting guard Saddiq Bey struggled for Detroit, finishing with only four points on 2-for-13 shooting in his 31 minutes on the court.
Jerami Grant leads the team with 16.8 points per game, but that’s a good bit down from his 22.3-point average from last season. Top draft pick Cade Cunningham is back after missing the first few games with an injury. He’s only scored a combined eight points in two games, however, so Detroit will be looking for him to get going offensively.
