The struggling Phoenix Suns traveled to the Little Caesars Arena Wednesday night to take on the Detroit Pistons. The Pistons made quick work out of the Suns going up 36-19 by the end of the first quarter.
At the beginning of the season Little Caesars Arena was almost empty every night, but now after defeating the Golden State Warriors, Boston Celtics, and Los Angeles Clippers on the road Pistons fans are starting to buy in.
NBA reporter Duncan Smith tweeted:
“18,096 people watched the Pistons beat up on the Suns on Wednesday. The people are starting to believe.” – @DuncanSmithNBA
Six Detroit Pistons ended the night in double-digits with Reggie Jackson leading the team putting up 23 points. Tobias Harris and Avery Bradley both had 20, and Pistons number-one draft pick Luke Kennard put up a season high 12 points.
After their win Wednesday night — the Pistons are now 13-6. Detroit is only three and-a-half games back of the first place Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference.
Detroit will travel to Washington to take on the Wizards Friday night. Washington currently has a record of 11-9.
