Pistons Fall To 76ers
PHILADELPHIA (WWJ/AP) – The Detroit Pistons lose on the road to the Philadelphia 76ers 95-74 on Saturday night.
As heard on 97.1 The Ticket – the Pistons struggled against the 76ers – looking tired and sluggish just one night after losing in overtime to Atlanta.
The Pistons received a boost with the return of forward Tayshaun Prince, who had missed the previous two games tending to a family matter. Prince only scored six points, however.
Andre Iguodala recorded the eighth triple-double of his career with 10 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds, to get the Philadelphia 76ers their second straight win.
Iguodala, who turned 28 on Saturday, received a nice ovation from the crowd when he secured his triple-double with a defensive rebound with 7:34 remaining.
Lou Williams scored 17 points, Elton Brand added 14 and Jrue Holiday had 13 for the Sixers, who improved to 14-6 and 10-2 at home.
