The Pistons had lost a season-high seven long three-game win streak. Then, something gave.

Behind a career-high 26 points from Brandon Knight, Detroit halted its slide with an 88-80 victory. Greg Monroe added 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Tayshaun Prince finished with 13 and nine boards.

The Bucks, who were coming off of Wednesday's comeback win over the Heat, were paced by Brandon Jennings' 20 points. Shaun Livingston had 14 and Ersan Ilyasova chipped in nine and 12 rebounds.
