Yet after having the streak snapped by the Heat, Boston dropped another game to the Detroit Pistons. The Pistons were in control most of the game and they were clearly more into the game than Boston was.
You could hear a pretty wild locker room before SVG came out to talk to the media tonight. #Pistons— NerdOnPistons臘♂️ (@Vincent_Ellis56) November 28, 2017
Bench celebrations and excessive poundings of the chest didn’t go unnoticed after the game by Kyrie.

Kyrie had a bad game, scoring 18 points on 6-16 shooting along with six turnovers, as he was locked down by a top defender in Avery Bradley. Nonetheless, Kyrie couldn't handle another team beating him on his home court and proved he was a sore loser when he clearly go upset about the Pistons celebrating the big win, which was a big one for them. Detroit has been looking to take the next step for a few years now, and a statement win on the road in Boston certainly helps their case.
The next time Boston plays Detroit is on Dec. 10, and we'll just have to wait and see how this rematch goes.
