NBA Game Summary - Detroit at Chicago



(Saturday, December 7th)

Final Score: Detroit 92, Chicago 75

Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Brandon Jennings scored a game-high 33 points to lead the Detroit Pistons to a 92-75 victory over the Chicago Bulls.

"He made plays when we needed him to make plays. That is what he is evolving to," Detroit head coach Maurice Cheeks said of Jennings.

Kyle Singler had 12 points and Josh Harrellson added 10 for the Pistons, who have won four straight.

Taj Gibson scored 21 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, Mike Dunleavy had 16 points and Carlos Boozer added 13 points and seven rebounds for Chicago, which has lost three of its last four.

"We had a hard time scoring, we had a hard time covering the (3-point) line," Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said.

The Pistons came back to tie the game, 47-47, before the half on a Harrellson 3-pointer after a hard fought first half.

Detroit came out of the locker room with more energy than the Bulls and took the lead with an Andre Drummond layup just 33 seconds into the second half and did not look back from there.

The lead would grow to as much as 15 points, in favor of Detroit, in the third quarter. The Pistons carried a 15-point advantage, 71-56, into the fourth.

The Pistons did not let their foot off the gas pedal in the fourth. The Bulls managed to come within 11 points with 10:11 to play but that would be the closest they would get for the rest of the game.

The first quarter started with the teams trading the lead four times in the first four minutes. The Bulls stretched the lead to seven points with 3:46 left in the first before the Pistons rallied to take a 25-24 lead into the second quarter.

Chicago held the lead for most of the second quarter and had its largest lead, 45-38, with 2:57 to play in the quarter. Detroit, however, score the final seven points of the half and tied the game.
