Knicks score first 14, never look back in rout of Pistons

There haven’t been many lopsided losses for the Pistons this season, but against the New York Knicks, the big blowout was one of the anomalies.

The Knicks scored the first 14 points of the game and didn’t let off the gas the rest of the way, as they cruised past the Pistons, 125-81, on Saturday night at Little Caesars Arena.

For the Pistons, the highlight was the return of rookie Killian Hayes, who has missed most of the season because of a torn hip labrum.

Julius Randle dominated early, with 20 of his 29 points in the first quarter, along with seven rebounds for the Knicks (25-25), who swept the three-game season series.
