BOSTON -- Defense has been the Detroit Pistons' calling card for most of the season, but their offense carried them past the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope led a group of four 20-point scorers for the Pistons, who shot a sizzling 55.2 percent (48 of 87) and notched a season-high in points with their 121-114 victory.
"Over the course of the 48 minutes, no question the best offensive performance of the year," said Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy, whose team entered the night allowing the seventh-fewest points (99.4) in the NBA.
