DETROIT, Michigan — The Detroit Pistons recorded a 99-83 victory over the Chicago Bulls, led by Blake Griffin’s 25 points, eight rebounds and eight assists, who is averaging 28 points in his last four games.
“I thought our defense was pretty good all night, but the offense didn’t really get going until the second quarter,” Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said. “After that, we played really well.”
Reggie Bullock added 21 points while Andre Drummond had 17 rebounds. Detroit will travel to Utah as part of six game road trip.
“I thought we came out really well, but we missed a lot of shots,” Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said. “When you shoot 35 percent on the road, you aren’t going to give yourself much of a chance, plus 14 turnovers.”
Cameron Payne led the Bulls with 17 points, while Kris Dunn was the only other player to reach double figures with 13.
The Bulls will visit the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday.
