    The Detroit Pistons faced a tough challenge on their first stop of a five-game road trip, facing a longtime rival and an opponent they hadn't beaten in 11 straight meetings over the past three seasons. Furthermore, the team was shorthanded due to suspensions from Wednesday's controversial game against the Orlando Magic. Despite these challenges, the Pistons competed until the final few minutes but ultimately fell to the Chicago Bulls in a 132-118 loss at United Center.

    Game Recap: Detroit Pistons 118 – Chicago Bulls 132

    The Detroit Pistons entered the game leading the NBA in bench points with 675 (48.2 per game) since December 1st. This strong bench performance was largely due to the contributions of Alec Burks, who finished with 19 points on 7-of-9 shooting after scoring 32 points on 10-of-11 shooting against the Magic. However, Burks was not enough to carry the team to victory against the Bulls, as six players scored in double figures for the Pistons, led by Bojan Bogdanovic's 20 points, four rebounds, and five assists. The Pistons also received strong performances from Jaden Ivey and Alec Burks, scoring 19 points, and Isaiah Stewart, who recorded a double-double with 16 points and ten rebounds.
