The TD Garden was rocking and another Pistons road collapse appeared to be in the making.
"Stuff is going to get insane when you're playing on the road", Smith added. Al Horford returned to practice on Tuesday after the birth of his daughter and so the team has no injuries to report.

There hasn't been any word on whether a suspension will accompany the ejection so he will more than likely be available to play.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope led six Pistons in double figures with 25 points, as the Pistons (10-10) will try to complete a ideal three-game trip at Atlanta on Friday night.

With just over four minutes remaining in the first half of a nip-and-tuck battle between Drummond's Detroit Pistons and the Charlotte Hornets, the team Hibbert joined on a one-year deal this summer, the two big men were battling under the basket as Hornets star Kemba Walker lofted a 3-pointer.
"We lost today. That's not a good feeling", Crowder said. "Our guys have good resilience so our guys hung in".

Harris tops the list at 16.4 points per game, while center Andre Drummond is averaging 14.6 points and 13.4 rebounds. The Pistons had a slow start and were not able to get close against the Thunder.
