The Detroit Pistons are still in the playoff hunt this season in the Eastern Conference, but they took a hit at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night when they lost to the New York Knicks 102-89.

Andre Drummond was the top performer for the Pistons, scoring 21 points, adding 16 rebounds as well. Tobias Harris added 18 points, but it wasn't enough to hold back the Knicks from winning the game.

They now sit in ninth position in the conference, and their head coach Stan Van Gundy was not happy with his team's performance on the night at all.

He said, according to NBC Sports: “We should all be disappointed; it was ridiculous. We were just terrible. We didn’t bring any energy to the game. We didn’t play well at either end. It was an embarrassing performance….

“They dominate us. We can’t play Arron Afflalo and Carmelo Anthony. We have nobody to play those two guys, and Robin Lopez always plays great against Andre.”

The Pistons need to start winning on a more consistent basis if they want to make the playoffs this season, as with Jimmy Butler now back for the Chicago Bulls, the task is going to start to get a lot tougher for them.

They'll attempt to turn around a two-game losing streak and stay in the playoff hunt when they play next against the Portland Trail Blazers.
