Pistons end losing streak against the Bulls with hard-fought win.
The Detroit Pistons snapped an 18-game losing streak against the Chicago Bulls on Sunday, with a 99-85 win at The Palace.
Point guard Brandon Knight had 20 points and five assists, while Jonas Jerebko added 17 points and nine rebounds off the bench for the Pistons, who sealed their first win over the Bulls since the 2008/09 season.
With Luol Deng injured, Carlos Boozer led the Bulls with 21 points and 10 rebounds, his eighth double-double in 10 games, while Nate Robinson had 18 points. Joakim Noah returned to the starting line-up and added 13 points in just over 20 minutes of action.
However, they couldn’t stop Chicago from falling two games behind the Brooklyn Nets for fourth place in the Eastern Conference with just a handful of regular season games remaining.
The Bulls head to Toronto to face the Raptors on Tuesday, while the Pistons hit the road to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers a night later.
