Pistons 115, Knicks 108: Scenes from coming back to Earth

Win streak, we hardly knew ye

NBA: New York Knicks at Detroit Pistons Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Well, this was bound to happen sooner than later.

The Knicks rolled into Detroit on a three-game win streak, and they then proceeded to get rolled tonight, losing 115-108 to the Pistons.

But hey, Allonzo Trier went off again! 24 points on 7-11 shooting for the rook, as he continued his most unlikely impressive start to the season. He also had 10 boards and seven assists for a near-triple-double.

Oh and hey! Damyean Dotson is still alive. He played 23 minutes tonight as proof. And go figure, the guy who played good before still knows how to play good, with 17 points on 6-8 shooting.

Certainly encouraging to see.

Enes Kanter continued his streak of double-doubles to four games, notching 16 points and 14 boards in the start.

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 19 on a less-than-impressive 5-15 from the floor, but he took a shot to the noggin from Kanter trying to use a pick, so I’ll give him a pass tonight for that:

(Thankfully, he was fine.)

Blake Griffin absolutely toasted the Knicks with 30 points in 36 minutes. Reggie Jackson and Stanley Johnson also both had 20-plus. Andre Drummond missed about 20 free throws.

Meanwhile, a bunch of Knicks didn’t exactly have banner nights. Mitch Robinson, Noah Vonleh and Mario Hezonja all fouled out trying to keep Griffin contained. Frank Ntilikina, Trey Burke and Kevin Knox shot a combined 2-18 off the bench (barf face emoji).

So, yeah. Back to tanking we go!
