The defeat extended the Pistons' winless run to three matches on the road having registered three successive defeats.
Bradley Beal, the Pistons star, recently lauded his teammate Russell Westbrook and he described how his intangibles have made a difference.
"He’s just full of energy, ready to go, always a winning mentality. He’s going to play extremely hard every single time he touches the floor," Beal said. 
"It’s so surreal to be able to see a guy that plays as hard as he does still have that type of energy, still getting himself up and ready to go.
"It’s [motivating]. It just trickles down to the rest of us. We kind of embrace that. We embrace where we are, we embrace who we think we can be, our style of play," he added.
"And then Russ’ attitude towards the game. He’s going to bark at you or yell at you if you’re not ready to go. You can either step it up and hoop or hear from Russ; one or the other."
