Wizards vs. Pistons game recap: Detroit dismantles Washington

USA TODAY Sports

The Pistons wasted no time in showing the Wizards that it would be a long night.

The Washington Wizards traveled to face the Detroit Pistons only to get blown out of the building, 100-68, on Friday night in The Palace of Auburn Hills.

The Wizards trailed by 15 points after the first quarter and 26 points after three, never threatening a Pistons team that they should have been able to play with. The Wizards were led by Jordan Crawford's 20 points, seven rebounds and seven assists but didn't get much from anyone else as they shot a woeful 32.9 percent from the field, including just 2-for-12 from three-point range.

The Pistons displayed a balanced attack with five players in double-figures including both Greg Monroe and Brandon Knight with 15 points. Monroe also added nine rebounds while Andre Drummond put in 11 points and 14 rebounds off the bench. On the defensive side of the ball, the Pistons blocked 13 shots including five by Drummond and three by Jason Maxiell.

The Wizards dropped to 3-20 on the season while the Pistons improved to 7-21.
