The Detroit Pistons turned the page completely on Wednesday, defeating the Toronto Raptors with energy, plenty of defense, and ball movement to get the job done. After head coach Dwane Casey berated his team for lack of defense in Monday night’s loss, the Pistons snapped their four-game defeat, beating the Toronto Raptors 116-112 at Little Caesars Arena.

Toronto kept the game close , and the action continued into the last few minutes. The Raptors retreated within three points after a layup by Chris Boucher, but then the piston guard sent Josh Jackson a message.

At 2:16 on the clock, Jackson released a 3-hand to locate the piston (11 -29) before saluting the Raptors bench. Frank Jackson came off the bench after Josh Jackson fouled out of the game and took a driving floating jump shot with just over a minute of play.

Josh Jackson, who led the second session to 30 bank points, ended the night at 16 Points, five rebounds and six assists in one of his best overall games of recent times. The Pistons were able to take advantage of a few trips to the line to extend their lead, but Raptors forward Norman Powell became fouled with a 3-point shot for a chance at a four-point game. Powell, who ended the night with 43 points and three rebounds, missed the free throw.

Detroit’s best man, Jerami Grant, who scored 23 points, almost ended the game with a rebound in midfield to improve Detroit by three but Powell scored three to bring the Raptors back in two.

Rookie Saddiq Bey brought the finisher into the night with two free throws in the final three seconds. Bey finished the night with 28 points, making eight of his 14 shots from the field and six of his 10 attempts from a distance. He also had 12 rebounds to end the night with his third career double-double.

He wasn’t the only Pistons player to end the night with that success. Mason Plumlee and Delon Wright also had doubles doubles. Plumlee scored 10 points and 14 rebounds while Wright scored 18 points and scored 10 rebounds.

With strong nights on the boards of Bey, Plumlee and Wright, the Pistons outperformed the Raptors 54-30 and capitalized on both ends of the floor. Detroit scored 13 offensive rebounds which it was able to score 20 second chance points.

On the way into the night, the Pistons averaged just 13.1 second chance points. Their struggle for every point showed on the ground.

Even with the return of several of Toronto’s major rotating parts, the pistons kept the Raptors from three to 37 out of 86 and from three to 12 out of 40. The Raptors’ two guards, Fred Van Vleet and Kyle Lowry, shot 4 of 26 together, while Pascal Siakam was 3 of 11 on his return from the league health and safety protocol.

Now the pistons will take to the streets where they will be on Friday (8pm , Fox Sports Detroit) will compete against the Houston Rockets.
