First made FT of the season for Moore. He was 0-for-2 before that. Moore just received a multi-year deal from the Pistons. Thanks Thibs.
James Johnson on the fans: “I thought the Pistons were hosting Toronto Raptors night."
3:07 left in the game Pistons down 105-88
Not long before all of this, James Johnson had thrown down a monster slam over the demoralized Pistons. Drummond apparently didn’t like.
Do the Pistons know James Johnson kicks higher than he jumps?
Shoving match ensues by Pistons bench. Patterson, James Johnson and Greg Monroe appeared to be in the middle of it. Didn't have a great view
James Johnson ethered Greg Monroe. Pistons cheerleaders throwing out shirts to the crowd to distract then Chuck Hayes going at Monroe.
Pistons score and PA guy woofs (I think). He’s right, they are a bunch of dogs.

Tie game at the half ... Gamed tied at 52. Monroe leads Pistons with 10 points. Lowry with 11.
Pistons w/ 17 ast on 24 first-half FGs and only 2 turnovers. 1-for-9 from 3P range hurts. Raps with twice as many FTA (9/10 to DET's 3/5)
4:48 left in the half 49-40 Pistons
Raptors fans helping Pistons? Detroit’s lost 11 straight at home, but this must feel like a bit of a road game for them.
