The Detroit Pistons got off to a strong start in their matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday, with Isaiah Stewart scoring 10 points early in the first quarter. However, as the game went on, the Pistons’ energy dissipated and fell 123-111 to the 76ers.

Why It Matters: The Pistons were aggressive on both ends of the court in the early going, with Killian Hayes effectively running the offense and the team playing solid defense. However, the 76ers caught fire, shooting 54% from the field in the first quarter, and the Pistons couldn’t match their scoring prowess. Despite Stewart finishing with 20 points and 13 rebounds and Hayes tying a career-high with 26 points and dishing out six assists, the Pistons could not keep up with Philadelphia, who had three players score at least 20 points and five players in total scoring double figures.
