Pistons head to Milwaukee on a roll

Missing 12 months not only rules Parker out for the rest of this season but puts him out most of next year as well.

Parker suffered a torn ACL on February 8 in a game against the Miami Heat and once again found his young career derailed. His per game plus-minus mark is -6.9, worst on the team if you discount the little used Reggie Bullock and Henry Ellenson. Initially called a knee sprain, an MRI next day revealed the full damage.

Last time these two teams faced one another, Milwaukee absolutely drubbed the Pistons 119-94, who were in the midst of their own sequence of turmoil and team meetings. The Bucks allowed under 100 points for the first time since January 2 and only the 16th time overall.

Andre Drummond had 21 points and 12 rebounds, while Jon Leuer also had a double-double with 15 and 11. More dark-cloud silver linings?

Michael Beasley hit 10-of-13 shots on his way to 23 points. Since then, the Nets are averaging 99.4 points and shooting 42.6 percent with the average margin of defeat being 11.1. Monroe has scored 42 points on 18 of 23 shooting in his last two games while Beasley made his first six shots during his second start for the injured Parker.

"We've been close", Brooklyn coach Kenny Atkinson said. "Tonight, I don't think we were as mentally focused as we needed to be". You just have to pick up the slack.




Will the Detroit Pistons be able to win back-to-back road games tonight when they face the Milwaukee Bucks at 8PM ET?

The Maryborough-born and bred guard played 27 minutes in the Bucks' 102-89 win over Eastern Conference rival Detroit Pistons. In this week's episode of The Postgame Tailgate podcast, OnMilwaukee's Jeff Sherman and Matt Mueller argued that postseason experience - even as a low seed, and without Parker - would benefit the Bucks.

Both teams got off to a solid start, trading the lead back and forth and countering any possible run that could break the game wide open.

In their first game after losing Parker, the Bucks were embarrassed by the Lakers, who cruised to a 122-106 victory.

"We've been scarred a little bit in having to dig ourselves out of a hole", Bucks coach Jason Kidd said.
