Wizards Vs. Pistons Score Update: Washington Trails By 11 At Half

The injury-depleted Washington Wizards, looking to end a three-game losing streak and pick up their sixth road win of the season, trail 51-40 at the Palace of Auburn Hills. While they didn't make a three in the first half, the Pistons did shoot the lights out, hitting 53 percent from the floor. Detroit was led on the inside by Georgetown alum Greg Monroe, who has 13 points and six rebounds through the first 24 minutes. Monroe has had a breakout season, and with Nene still out, he's controlled the paint.

John Wall led Washington with 11 points and added five assists but his backcourt mate Jordan Crawford has put up a rare bagel, missing all six shots from the floor so far. The Wizards will have to clean it up on the offensive end in the second half to get back in it. They committed nine turnovers in the first half. Stopping Monroe and competing on the glass will also be a key to threatening the Pistons on their home floor in the final two quarters.
