In a cross-conference match-up the Utah Jazz went up against the Detroit Pistons to improve their record.

The final scoreline was 110-105 in favor of the Pistons as they came back from behind to get the win. The match was pretty tight and it was a great back and forth match where the momentum was swinging from one team to another, and it was pretty hard to say who would win until the final minutes.

The Pistons showed up from early on and let the Jazz know that they were there to win, but then the Jazz recovered from their 1st quarter and went on to claim the victory.

After this match, the Jazz are 9th in the West with a record of 20-20, while the Pistons are 9th in the East with a record of 17-20.

With that in mind, here are the top 3 points from the match.

The Pistons have been on kind of a losing slump lately. They have not been able to figure out how to win, and all their players' morale looked down as well. They were not putting in good performances.

But this game was a positive breather for them as all their starters played well. All of them were in double-figures and gave a great fight to the Jazz until the last minutes where they succumbed, as they didn't have enough firepower for the Jazz.

Blake Griffin scored the most points for the Pistons, with 34 points on 13 of 21 shooting. Griffin has been in amazing form this season as he has been averaging 24.8 points, 8.7 rebounds on 46% field goals and 36.3% 3-point percentage. He needs to play like this for the Pistons to qualify for the NBA Playoffs.
