GAME 28: PISTONS 109, NETS 72

Palace of Auburn Hills
February 10, 2012

Pistons win 4th straight
DETROIT Greg Monroe and the Detroit Pistons were on the right side of this blowout.

Monroe had 18 points and 11 rebounds, and the Pistons routed the Nets 109-92 Friday night for their fourth straight victory. Detroit has lost seven games by at least 20 points this season, but this equaled the team's most lopsided win.

The Pistons are on their longest winning streak since a five-game run in December 2009.

NETS-PISTONS NOTEBOOK
TURNING POINT: After the Nets scored the game's first seven points, the Pistons responded with 12 unanswered points and never trailed again. Greg Monroe had six of those points, including two tip-ins. That set the tone for the Pistons' rebounding dominance, as they controlled the boards 47-31.

HOT/NOT: New Jersey's starting frontcourt duo of Shelden Williams and Kris Humphries combined for just nine points and 10 rebounds while getting overpowered and outhustled inside by Monroe, Jonas Jerebko and Jason Maxiell (six points, five rebounds, season-high four blocks).

On the loss:

"We had poor execution on both ends of the floor and we just can't finish in the paint right now. We missed more layups than a lot of teams I've seen so we have to do a better job of finishing in the paint.

We talked about defense, defense, defense but we put a lot of pressure on our offense when we're not taking care of the ball or finishing our shots in the paint."
