Chicago, IL —
After scoring 11 in the first quarter, Boozer didn't score again until the final two minutes.
Gibson was especially active on the offensive glass. He battled for two offensive boards and a putback on one possession three minutes into the second quarter.
Jennings made 12 of 22 shots from the floor, including a 5-for-8 performance from 3-point range. The Pistons shot 12 for 19 from beyond the arc overall.
"He made plays when we really needed him to make plays — and I think that's where he's evolving," Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks said of the 24-year-old Jennings. "We need him to play like and shoot the ball the way he's capable of shooting the ball."
Kyle Singler scored 12 points for Detroit, and Josh Harrellson had 10.
Detroit went 6 for 8 from 3-point range in the first half to make up for an inability to finish inside. The Pistons failed to convert a bunch of opportunities under the rim but the game was tied at 47 at halftime.
NOTES: Both Gibson and Joakim Noah were whistled for technical fouls. ... Deng said an MRI revealed "everything is fine" with the injury. "My mindset is to be ready for the next game," he said. ... Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey left in the second quarter with a sore left knee and did not return. He finished with two points in 10 minutes.
