The #Pistons got back to work Friday night in Milwaukee after a long layoff and took down the Bucks 103-87 thanks to a 26 points from Greg Monroe and a stellar fourth quarter from Brandon Knight. The win adds to the Pistons great play of late, who are now winners of five of their last seven games, the two losses coming in overtime.
- Greg Monroe was superb game scoring 12 points in the third quarter pulling Detroit ahead after trailing 49-41 at the half. Greg put up his 13th double-double of the season with 26 points, 11 boards, 2 assists and a steal. He was also a ridiculous +35 in the box. Greg looks like he has shaken off whatever funk he was in a few weeks back.

Andre Drummond: “At the start of the season when things wouldn’t go our way, we got down on ourselves. We know what we need to do now. We fight and compete every day. When good things happen, we’re excited, knowing we’ve worked hard to get to this point.”
- Kyle Singler with 10 points, three assists and four boards. He’s been looking like he’s stuck in this rut that really makes him more of a sixth many than anything else.
