The Toronto Raptors are among the worst teams in the Eastern Conference this season. The Detroit Pistons were defeated 118-104 at the Little Caesars Arena on Monday night.
The Pistons have a record of 13 wins and 33 losses from 2020 to 2021, ranking 15th and last in the Eastern Conference. However, they did not look like this low-level team on Monday, and all players scrambled to come up with 2 cents.
Six players scored more than 12 points, including Sadiq Bay, Saben Lee and Hamidou Diallo with 19 points, including three points. The Pistons are also very effective at three-pointers, scoring 15 of the 30 attempts they made in the city. Ultimately, this is the key to balance.
All five starters made the offense for the Raptors, and Fred Van Fleet led the Torontoman with 22 points.
Quebec Chris Boucher scored 4 points, 3 rebounds and assists in 16 minutes on the court.
This is Toronto’s third consecutive loss, and Toronto has only won one of the past 13 games. Instead, the Pistons ended a four-game losing streak.
