Not long before all of this, James Johnson had thrown down a monster slam over the demoralized Pistons. Drummond apparently didn’t like.

Michael Grange

Do the Pistons know James Johnson kicks higher than he jumps?

Josh Lewenberg

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

Ryan Wolstat

James Johnson ethered Greg Monroe. Pistons cheerleaders throwing out shirts to the crowd to distract then Chuck Hayes going at Monroe.

Vincent Ellis

And #WetheNorth chants break out here at the Palace. College-like stuff. #Pistons #Raptors

Josh Lewenberg

Fields takes a hard and scary fall attempting to close out on a Pistons shooter. He's still down, motionless. Trainers taking a look

Pistons game ops favour Gangstarr. Thumbs up.

Vincent Ellis

Tie game at the half ... Gamed tied at 52. Monroe leads Pistons with 10 points. Lowry with 11.

SVG needs to bring back Jennings sooner here - if he's bringing him back. Augustin turnover killed momentum. #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.

Eric Smith

9:46 to go in Q2, the #Raptors trail the #Pistons 37-28. Toronto playing sloppily and Detroit playing with confidence as a result. #RTZ
