The Pistons nearly pulled off an improbable comeback last night at Golden State but in the end, the Warriors held on for a 101-to-97 win over Detroit. The Pistons trailed by 32 points in the second quarter but cut the deficit to two points with less than 10 seconds to play before Golden State escaped with the victory.
Charlie Villanueva led six Pistons in double figures with 18 points and eight rebounds. The Detroit comeback started after coach John Kuester and Tayshaun Prince got into a shouting match during a timeout when Keuster had to be separated by an assistant coach from going after Prince.
The Pistons had a 2-and-2 record on their 4-game western road trip and will take a 4-and-7 mark into tomorrow night’s encounter with the Lakers at the Palace.
