Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hits late 3-pointer to seal comeback, beat Raptors (VIDEO)

The Detroit Pistons came back from a 16-point deficit on Sunday night against the Toronto Raptors. It was the fourth loss in six games for Toronto, and it all came down to the final 30 seconds.

On a broken defensive possession in secondary transition, the Pistons ran a dribble penetration with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope standing in the right corner. Raptors G DeMar DeRozan was double covering Marcus Morris on the left wing, and that forced Kyle Lowry to defend both Caldwell-Pope and Ish Smith.

That didn’t go so well, and Caldwell-Pope was able to get off a 3-pointer to take the lead with just 13 seconds remaining.

Toronto was unable to convert their opportunity on the other end of the floor, and Detroit held on to win, 102-101.

After the game, Lowry remarked that he felt the Raptors needed to change something about their team. The trade deadline is heating up.
