Pistons beat Warriors to win fifth straight, Raptors roll on

Pistons beat Warriors to win fifth straight, Raptors roll on”

"He's doing some straight-line movement and got some shots up today". We'll analyze two key situations in this piece: the Golden State Warriors at the Detroit Pistons and the Chicago Bulls at the Houston Rockets.

Finally, after missing over ten games this season, Curry returned to the court as the Warriors took a tough loss to the Detroit Pistons on Saturday night.

"That's obviously a great win". He specifically cited the team's lack of spacing as a big issue. The Pistons finished with 14 offensive rebounds to Golden State's eight. While the Warriors were excited to have Curry again since he could potentially create a much-needed spark for the team - they weren't fortunate enough to get a game-changing performance out of the star guard, despite what the stat sheets say.

"We know we can play better than this".

The Warriors went 5-6 in 11 games without Curry. Golden State has attempted 710 3-pointers this season, compared to 820 by the opposition.

"It was a great crowd, I'm excited everyone wanted to come out", Casey said following the game. Beal and Morris complemented him as Washington scored 60 points in the second half. "I was a little bit more aggressive, decisive". "Tonight was probably a game that I can mark down as one of my worst performances as a coach, honestly. Just gaining confidence and feeling good, so I'm sure that will carry over". "We weren't shooting 3s or getting to the glass".

Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson combined for 49 points for Golden State, but the defending champs couldn't get their 3-point shooting in high gear, making only six of 26 from long distance. "I think our guys are earning the trust with their hard play and their defensive efforts". "None of that is on coach".

Curry made 10 of 21 shots but was just 3-for-9 from behind the arc. He had 28 points in the loss to Detroit.

Johnson and Smith were part of a bench crew that outscored their Golden State counterparts 42-13.

The Pistons outscored the Warriors 36-18 on 3-pointers in the win. "They are playing really well and we didn't do anything to take them out of their comfort zone". Because the Pistons played a back to back on the weekend and host Oklahoma City on Monday night, the first opportunity Kennard will have to go through a practice comes Tuesday before the Pistons travel to Milwaukee for a Wednesday date with the Bucks.

On return, the point guard scored 27 points but could not prevent his side slipping to fourth in the Western Conference.

Tonight's impact: The Bulls have already reported that Markkanen will have a minutes limit if he plays tonight.

Kawli Leonard had 34 points and nine rebounds in the win, with Danny Green, Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet all adding 15 as the Raptors improved to 20-4.
