Cade Cunningham and the Pistons nearly pull off upset of the season

Few fans expected the last-seeded Detroit Pistons to win against the top-seeded Boston Celtics ahead of tonight’s game. But the Pistons nearly pulled off the biggest upset of the season by taking the game to overtime. Cade Cunningham continued his incredible form despite his team’s abysmal run and finished the game with 31 points, 9 assists, and 6 rebounds. His teammates, Bojan Bogdanović, Jalen Duren, Jaden Ivey, and Alec Burks, also scored in double digits.

It took a 31-point performance from Jayson Tatum and an incredible 35-point performance from Kristaps Porziņģis for the Celtics to come out with a win. Detroit put up a great fight tonight and gave us one of the best games of the season. They will look to play at the same level in the next game against the Raptors and snap their 28-game losing streak.
