Saddiq Bey delivers last-second heroics
The Detroit Pistons (11-30, 5th in Central) defeated the Golden State Warriors 122-119 on Wednesday night thanks to a game-winning three-pointer from Pistons forward Saddiq Bey. The shot came after Warriors guard Klay Thompson tied the game with a three of his own with 2.3 seconds remaining.
Why it matters: The Pistons ended the Warriors' season-best winning streak at five games, dealing a blow to the defending champions' playoff hopes. The Warriors are currently without reigning NBA Finals MVP Stephen Curry, who has missed the last ten games with a partially dislocated left shoulder and is set to be re-evaluated on Saturday.

- Bey finished with 17 points and hit a key three late in the game.
- Pistons forward Bojan Bogdanovic hit his first five three-pointers and finished with 29 points.
- Six Pistons players scored in double figures.
- Thompson led the Warriors with 30 points, including two big three-pointers down the stretch.
- Warriors forward Draymond Green was ejected with 1:24 remaining in the game for receiving his second technical foul.
