Pistons drop Bucks by a season-high 150 points on ‘Bob Lanier’ night

Detroit − Another poor defensive effort in the first half resulted in another disappointing loss for the Pistons.

Last week it was against the Chicago Bulls in Paris. This time it was against the Milwaukee Bucks inside Little Caesars Arena on a night the team honored the life and legacy of the late Bob Lanier, who played for both franchises.

The game was already unfortunate for the Pistons, who were shorthanded without Killian Hayes and Isaiah Stewart with shoulder injuries. To make matters worse, the Bucks had a full roster and welcomed back their two All-Stars in Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton.

Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (34) drives past Detroit Pistons center Jalen Duren (0) in the first quarter.

Antetokounmpo dominated with a double-double with 29 points, 12 rebounds and four assists to lead the Bucks to a 150-130 victory over the Pistons.

It was uglier than the final score listed and the loss marked the third time this season the Bucks have beaten the Pistons after previous wins at home in Milwaukee on Oct. 31 and Nov. 2.
