Detroit Pistons’ turnovers hurt in 117-96 preseason loss to Knicks


After one preseason game, it’s safe to say the Detroit Pistons have a few things to work on.

They trailed for all 48 minutes in their preseason debut against the New York Knicks, as mental errors led to a blowout 117-96 loss at Madison Square Garden. The Pistons turned the ball over 21 times, leading to 26 Knicks points, and shot just 41.3% overall and 31.7% from 3.

But there were bright spots, too. The rookies — Jaden Ivey and Jalen Duren — both impressed, as Ivey scored a team-high 16 points and Duren grabbed a team-high 14 rebounds. Isaiah Livers was one of Detroit’s best players on both sides of the floor with 13 points and two blocks. Killian Hayes also looked good, finishing with 11 points and five assists. Bojan Bogdanovic added 11 points.
