On Wednesday evening, the Detroit Pistons lost their season opener against the Chicago Bulls at Little Caesars Arena, 94-88.

After the game, Pistons head coach Dwane Casey spoke about the loss.

I thought we played well defensively. The decisions offensively broke our back. Our margin for error was small. They made some tough shots and we missed a lot. It sounds simplistic, but we missed a lot of shots that we normally make — a lot of open threes. That's growing pains for us, I think (the Bulls) are a very powerful offensive team; they have a bunch of shotmakers.
