Their most recent loss was against the title-contending Miami Heat by seven points, 98-105. This game did not have Cade Cunningham and leading the Pistons in scoring was Jerami Grant with 22 points. The Pistons’ second-round pick Isaiah Livers maximized the playing time as he has 16 points, six rebounds and four three-pointers. Marvin Bagley III and Saddiq Bey each tallied 13 points.
