The Pistons Made It Into the NBA Finals

The Pistons Made It Into the NBA Finals

They pushed the score to 65-41 by half-time and cruised from there.

Luke Kennard chipped in a game-high 27 points off the bench while connecting on four of his eight 3-point attempts against NY.

Griffin has been dealing with soreness in his left knee and did not play in Detroit's 115-89 win over the Knicks on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the Charlotte Hornets entered play with their postseason hopes still alive. But if they win, things can get interesting based on the result of Charlotte's game. The Pistons finished as the eighth, and final, seed in the Eastern Conference after the Charlotte Hornets lost to the Orlando Magic, 114-122, at Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.

In New York, Dwyane Wade recorded one last triple-double before heading off to retirement, and Brooklyn headed to Philadelphia to take on the 76ers in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs after securing the win and the No. 6 seed. Brooklyn can't fall further than No. 7, and if they defeat the Miami Heat, who were eliminated on Tuesday, they clinch the six seed.
