Detroit coach Lawrence Frank wanted his team to finish a tough road trip on a positive note. The Pistons did that, and provided some late-game toughness. Brandon Knight had a career-high 31 points, including five 3-pointers, and Greg Monroe scored 17 points, helping the Pistons stave off three game-tying field goal attempts in the closing seconds of their 104-102 victory on Sunday night.
“It was good to see how we responded.” Frank said of the win, which also snapped a two-game losing streak. “There were 20 lead changes in that game. We kept our poise and our resolve.”
