Charlotte Hornets Suffer Disappointing Blowout Loss at Home to the Detroit Pistons

Charlotte Hornets Suffer Disappointing Blowout Loss at Home to the Detroit Pistons

Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens calls to his players during the first quarter of an NBA basketball game against the Detroit Pistons in Boston, Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2016.

The Pistons have won four of their past five games after victories at Charlotte and Boston.

All nine Pistons had an assist in the first half.

The refs reviewed it and ejected Drummond for the play despite it being questionable, at best. Four of their five starters scored nine or more points through two quarters, and three of them reached double-digits.

"That's unacceptable", Crowder said.

The Raptors, who extended their winning streak to four games, took a seven-point lead into the fourth quarter, but the Grizzlies cut the margin to one. We scored on the next possession so they only led for, I don't know, 20 seconds?

There are times when Boston Celtics swingman Jae Crowder talks after games and, if you shut your eyes, it's eerie just how similar he can sound to Kevin Garnett. It's much too early to obsess about playoff positioning, and yet it's hard not to look at the logjam and fret wins that got away, particularly after Boston finished tied with three teams last season and a tiebreaker determined their playoff seeding.

"Everybody knows how much work I've put into my free throws so now when I get up there I don't worry about missing one because I know I'm going to try to make the next one", Drummond said.

Olynyk was on the mend after splitting open his right elbow in the Celtics' 112-104 win over the Miami Heat on Monday.

"That's great to see, " said Horford. The best way for Drummond to have a great impact on the game is generating those second chance opportunities.

Olynyk, who missed six games recovering from shoulder surgery last May, is finding a groove. VanGundy said that he made a mistake keeping him on the bench at the end, but his free throw shooting becomes a liability in tight games. He also got beat multiple times on defense.

He noted that the Celts' 42 3-point attempts were "a little high, (but) I don't think that was the (difference) tonight". It's not been an ongoing thing; it happened today and it happened a couple games but, for the most part, we've been trying to impose our will first.

Drummond is averaging 14.6 points and 13.4 rebounds per game this season and he is proving himself to be a dominant presence on the boards and, after this ejection, a good sport. The Celtics will always look to take a lot of three point shots, but they still can not rely on that to win them games yet. Rookie Jaylen Brown played only 4:24 and Gerald Green was again a DNP.

Detroit took a 10-point lead into the fourth quarter after Caldwell-Pope knocked down a pair of 3-pointers late in the third.
