Video: Pistons’ Reggie Bullock hits game-winner after Kawhi Leonard’s turnover
Detroit Pistons head coach Dwane Casey made his return to Toronto Wednesday to face the Raptors, and Pistons guard Reggie Bullock wanted to make sure Casey left Canada with a win in his old stomping ground.
The Raptors fired Casey over the summer after he led Toronto to the number one seed in the Eastern Conference last season. The Raptors were swept in the second round of the 2018 playoffs by the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second-consecutive season.
Casey won the 2018 Coach of the Year award despite getting fired. The Pistons players wanted to get this win for Casey, and Reggie Bullock delivered in a big way, hitting a game-winning shot with two seconds left in regulation after Raptors star Kawhi Leonard turned the ball over.
This was only the Raptors’ second loss of the season at home. The Pistons are now 7-6 on the season, while Toronto dropped to 12-3.
Reggie Bullock only scored five points, but it was his last two which were the biggest of the night. Pistons star Blake Griffin was a monster. The All-Star big man scored 30 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in the big-time road win.
You have to feel so good for Dwane Casey. He got the short end of the stick in Toronto. At least the fans at the game showed their team’s former coach love during a video tribute, although the win at the buzzer had to feel even better for Casey.
