ANTHONY SANFILIPPO – PHILADELPHIA (AP) One sizzling half was enough to beat lowly Philadelphia, but not to please Stan Van Gundy.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 23 points, Tobias Harris added 21 and the Detroit Pistons beat the 76ers 125-111 on Saturday night.
Trailing 57-52 at halftime, the Pistons shot 15 for 20 in a 38-point third quarter and finished with 73 points over the final two periods while erasing two 10-point deficits.
However, Van Gundy didn’t want to talk about his team shooting 66 percent from the field in the second half. It didn’t matter to him that all five of his starters registered at least 19 points. It was of little importance that his team was able to maintain its precarious grip on the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
No, what mattered to Van Gundy was that his team’s defense was subpar.
“Look, we didn’t play very well,” Van Gundy said. “Our turnovers were disastrous. We didn’t guard very well again. That’s what’s going to get us. It’s going to be tough to beat good teams. We couldn’t keep the ball in front of us. Our closeouts were terrible.
“We play about eight minutes of defense a night. My experience is that’s not going to be enough.”
Reggie Jackson scored 15 of his 24 points in the first half for the Pistons, who put all five starters in double figures. Andre Drummond had 19 points and 15 rebounds, while Marcus Morris also finished with 19 points.
The Pistons were sloppy in the first half, committing nine turnovers and giving up 57 points to a depleted Sixers team with five players in street clothes on the bench.
