Detroit Pistons lack energy and execution against Bulls, lose 126-108 in Paris

The Detroit Pistons have enjoyed plenty of highlights in Paris this week. But their matinee game against the Chicago Bulls at Accor Arena fell flat.

The Pistons (12-36) were blown out by the Bulls, 126-108. Detroit struggled on both ends of the floor, shooting just 40.2% overall and 23.5% (8-for-34) from 3 while allowing

the Bulls to shoot 54.3% overall. Chicago also struggled from outside, but made up for it by shooting 62.3% (43-for-69) inside the arc. Detroit cut the deficit to eight midway

through the fourth quarter following a pair of 3-pointers from Isaiah Livers, but the Bulls used a late 10-0 run to put the game away. CARLOS MONARREZ &
