Detroit run short lost to the Celtics 98-93

Pistons, Celtics, Greg monroe, Rodney Stuckey

Pistons made a run in the second half, but due to missed oppurtunities and missed easy layups they lost a winable game to the Cetlics 98-93.

Greg Monroe had a double double with 27 points and 17 rebounds. Rodney Stuckey scored 22 points, while Jonas Jerebko had a good game with 19 points 2 from deep three. Charlie Villanueva had a horrible night scoring  just 4 points 2-17, and 0-8 from behind the arc.

Boston was led by Jeff Green with 34 points.

The Celtics led by as many as 18 points before the Pistons scored the final 11 points of the third quarter and opened the fourth with Jonas Jerebko's three-point play. Boston went into another scoring slump late in the fourth, going 2 minutes, 9 seconds without a point while Detroit cut a 93-87 deficit down to two points.

But Green hit a 3-pointer from the left corner to give Boston a 96-91 lead. After Monroe got free for an easy dunk on an inbounds play, Jason Terry missed; Charlie Villanueva, who went 2 for 17 from the floor and missed all eight 3-point attempts, missed from beyond the arc for Detroit.
