Detroit cranked up their defense and held the Bucks to 37% accuracy while countering at almost 49% with advantages throughout the boxscore. Kentavious Caldwell-Popeled Detroit with a contest high 23 points with five yanks and five helpers including six bombs followed by Tobias Harris with 16 points and seven boards.
