At this point no one is claiming that the Pistons are a good team but you’d at least expect more of an effort against one of the NBA’s worst.
Monday night the Pistons put up a pathetic performance en route to a 105-86 blowout loss at the hands of the New Orleans Hornets.
Their shooting from the field was horrific going to just 29 of 18 for just 35.8 percent while the absence of Andre Drummond down low was made very apparent.
Without Drummond the Pistons had no answer for New Orleans center Robin Lopez who accumulated 23 points and 10 rebounds while Ryan Anderson was a big time Piston killer off the bench with his 31 points.
Rodney Stuckey led the way for the Pistons with 19 points off the bench with Greg Monroe leading the starters netting 17 points and 11 rebounds. Jose Calderon and Kyle Singler also scored in double figures with 13 and 14 points respectively.
