With 13 seconds left in regulation, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope drained a 3-pointer to give the Pistons a one-point lead. 13 seconds later, DeMar DeRozan was yelling and shrugging his shoulders at the refs for not calling a foul on Marcus Morris after DeRozan’s 17-foot game-winner came up short.
“(Morris) didn’t go for the shot fake,” Said Pope, who missed 10 of his first 11 3-pointers and finished with 21 points on 8 for 22 shooting. “He stayed disciplined, we all did down the stretch, but that was a big shot for Marcus and our opportunity.”
DeRozan finished the game with a game-high 26 points on 10 for 21 shooting. He also chipped in with 7 boards for the Raptors, who were outscored 36-19 in the 4th.
The Detroit Pope/Klutch Sports client also got a shout-out from LeBron James after his “Klutch” shot.
