Havoo!! Detroit Pistons finally snap their 28-game long losing streak

The Detroit Pistons finally halted their excruciating 28-game losing streak. In a scarcely satisfying 129-127 win against the Toronto Raptors, Cade Cunningham managed to come through with 30 points and 12 assists.

This win concluded a dismal run that began haunting them since October 28. Jalen Duren’s 18 points and 17 rebounds, coupled with Kevin Knox II’s 17 points, contributed to the team’s triumph.

Despite Pascal Siakam’s valiant attempt, amassing 35 points, and Dennis Schroder’s 28, the Raptors failed miserably to outshine the resolute Pistons. OG Anunoby, Precious Achiuwa, and Malachi Flynn to the New York Knicks came as a set of another disappointment.

Raptors coach Darko Rajakovic reluctantly acknowledged his team’s feeble energy in the face of adversity, half-heartedly praising Detroit’s performance. The Pistons, with a lukewarm lead of 90-86 entering the lackluster fourth quarter, clinched the win with scarcely impressive shots, including the somewhat unimpressive back-to-back 3-pointers by Cunningham and Jaden Ivey.

Siakam tried, but couldn’t bring the Raptors close, and Cunningham’s plays secured the Pistons’ win. Gary Trent Jr.’s last-second 3-pointer was lackluster, and Detroit Pistons celebrated with indifference.

Coach Monty Williams reluctantly expressed joy, calling it an awkward moment. The Raptors, despite a weak second-half effort, succumbed to the Pistons.

Looking forward, the Raptors face Cleveland, and the Pistons go against Houston. The win ended the Pistons’ losing streak but showed inconsistent determination.
