‘A lot of positives we brought to the locker room’ – Pistons finish strong in loss at Philly

The Pistons 3-point shooting needed a booster shot – and it finally came. It was a case of too little, too late to save them from remaining winless, dropping a 110-102 game to Philadelphia. But they hit 7 of 11 from distance in the fourth quarter to cut a 22-point deficit to five and it sends them home feeling a mysterious shooting funk is behind them. Combine that with the imminent return of No. 1 pick Cade Cunningham and better days beckon.

The sophomore point guard has so dominated Detroit Pistons discussion on social media — and in real life — over the past 11 months that it’s easy to forget how few games he has played, dating back to his selection at No. 7overall on Nov. 18, 2020. His career thus far has been characterized by injuries and inconsistency, but also flashes of the all-around ability that made him a consensus lottery prospect.
