The Pistons allowed the Mavericks to shoot above 60% in the first half and and 55% for the entire game. Dirk Nowitzki led all scorers with 26 points.
The Pistons have been extremely inconsistent since making the trade that sent Chauncey Billups to Denver for Allen Iverson. The Pistons are 20-18 since the trade, but it would be worse had it not been for a seven game win streak in the middle there. Meanwhile, the Stones are just 3-7 since that winning streak.
If you missed the game or the highlights I have posted them for you below (Notice how Jason Kidd and Dirk Nowitzki flirt with each other during warm ups)
The Pistons get back to action tomorrow evening against the Houston Rockets @ 6:30 PM ET. Houston continues to be hampered by injuries, as T-Mac, Ron Artest, and Yao are all likely to miss the game.
