How to watch tonight's Detroit Pistons vs. Milwaukee Bucks game

But center Greg Monroe and Michael Beasley picked up the slack, combining for 48 points, and the Bucks forced 17 turnovers in holding an opponent to less than 100 points for the first time in 20 games. Marcus Morris of the Pistons led the game in scoring with 26 points on 10 for 17 shooting. Head coach Jason Kidd called the win at IN one of the Bucks' best games as a team - they assisted on 28 of their 35 field goals, committed just six turnovers and made a season-high 17 three-pointers - and the triumph over Detroit marked the first time since January 2 that Milwaukee had held an opponent under 100 points.

But while those two were dominating, the rest of the Bucks struggled to find the hoop, especially from outside, where the Bucks made just two of 11 3-point attempts before the break. The Pistons weren't much better, making 7 of 21. They are now tied with the Bulls for the seventh spot in the East and if they are serious about being a playoff team, they need to win a game like this on the road.

"We were bad", Van Gundy said. The Bucks led by 22 at one point and held a double-digit advantage for most of the second half.

The Bucks have won the last seven meetings with the Nets and are 9-1 in the series since coach Jason Kidd left Brooklyn following the 2013-14 season. G Khris Middleton, playing his fourth game back since coming back from a torn hamstring, finished with a season-high 11 points. Giannis almost found his way to his third triple-double of the season with 20 points (on nine shots!), eight rebounds and ten assists.

Detroit was outscored by 13 in the second quarter and never recovered. His per game plus-minus mark is -6.9, worst on the team if you discount the little used Reggie Bullock and Henry Ellenson. The Pistons snapped a three-game road losing streak Sunday night at Toronto but have lost 10 of their past 14 road contests. The Pistons fell for the fifth time in their past six visits to Milwaukee. The teams meet once more this season on March 31 in Milwaukee.
