On the occasion of the Detroit Pistons' worst loss in more than a decade, Will Bynum was asked if a 39-point humiliation against the San Antonio Spurs was the season's low point.

"I mean, there's still a lot of games left, so I can't tell you that," he said.

Even with 20 games left to play, it's difficult to imagine the Pistons giving a less inspired effort than the 114-75 shelling the Spurs handed them.

Jason Maxiell, asked where the Pistons go from here, responded curtly and honestly.

"Nowhere else but up from this point, I'd say," he said. "We'll see how it turns out."

The Pistons (23-39) played their worst game of the season, without dispute, yet allowed some consideration to the possibility that rock bottom has yet to arrive.

It was a night when Brandon Knight used the word "lollygag" to describe the effort, and head coach Lawrence Frank suggested the massive paydays all these millionaires receive were, on this night, undeserved.

"The normal person, every day, would be dying for the checks that we get and we have to earn them," Frank said. "And tonight, quite frankly, we didn't. I didn't, we didn't."
