    Undefeated since waiving Smith right? Laki ng impact sa pagkawala ni Smith kina Monroe at Drummond and to think si Monroe pa muntik nila pakawalan.

    Hindi pwede bitawan si Monroe. Nagsign siya ng qualifying offer.

    7 Straight wins! Di nakaporma ang Mavs. Never lumamang. Hahaha.

    Konti na lang, pasok na tayo sa playoffs!

    Detroit lost for the first time in eight games. The Pistons had been unbeaten since waiving high-priced forward Josh Smith last month.

    Detroit had a chance to tie it when Kentavious Caldwell-Pope missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer. Caldwell-Pope scored 16 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter.

    ''Our shot selection was terrible all night, especially in the first half,'' Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said. ''There are positives to take out of this, because they didn't give up on the game, and we made some plays to get back into it. We were down 23, but we gave ourselves a shot at the end. It was a desperate shot, but we at least had that chance.''

    The Pistons went 13 of 43 from 3-point range on a night when standout big men Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond were a combined 7 of 20 from the field.

    Detroit cut the lead to three on Monroe's dunk with 2 seconds left, then the Hawks turned the ball over near midcourt. After a lengthy replay review, the Pistons were given 1.2 seconds on the clock, which was enough time for Caldwell-Pope to get a shot off from the right corner, but it missed badly.

    Caldwell-Pope was 8 of 23 from the field and 4 of 16 from 3-point range, but toward the end the Pistons seemed to have little choice but to take 3s.

    Drummond was sick and played only 17 minutes. He missed a dunk on Detroit's first trip down the court in the second half, and he did not return after leaving the game with 7:51 left in the third.

    Detroit's turnaround of late has been remarkable - the Pistons were 5-23 before their winning streak - but Atlanta's sustained excellence has been one of the most impressive stories of the first half of this season.

    The Pistons trailed 64-45 at halftime. They cut the lead to nine on a few occasions in the second half, and they finally got closer when Monroe's free throws with 2:36 remaining made it 102-95.

    The Pistons have gone through some dreadful seasons of late, so this recent stretch has been encouraging for Detroit fans. After the Pistons extended their winning streak to seven with victories at San Antonio and Dallas, an announced crowd of 18,859 turned out Friday. That was the team's largest home crowd since its home opener.

    Detroit was the fifth team in NBA history to have a seven-game winning streak in the same season as a 13-game losing streak, according to STATS.

    Detroit set a franchise record for 3-point attempts in a game, and Caldwell-Pope's 16 were the most by an NBA player this season.

    Pistons: Host Brooklyn on Saturday night.

    I thought the Smith-Drummond-Monroe trio will make wonders for the team.

    Playing for the fourth time in five nights, the Pistons put together an 8-0 run in the final three minutes to beat the Nets 98-93. The Nets, who were in action for the fifth time in seven days, had two key turnovers in that stretch.

    ''Those are the type of games that get people talking about changing the NBA schedule,'' said Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy. ''We didn't have any energy and neither did they, and this is the kind of game you get in that situation. You just keep trying to get good shots and hope something goes in, even though you don't have any legs, and you keep working on defense.''

    Brandon Jennings had 20 points despite going scoreless in the first half, and Detroit also got 16 points and 17 rebounds from Greg Monroe and 14 points and nine boards from Andre Drummond.

    The teams combined to go 10-for-33 from outside the arc in the first half, which ended at 47-47. Johnson and Kyle Singler both went 3-for-4 on threes in the half, while the rest of their teammates struggled.
