he disgust was palpable from Avery Bradley. After playing 33 minutes and scoring three points on 1-for-9 shooting in the Detroit Pistons' 96-93 loss to the San Antonio Spurs, the shooting guard expressed disbelief over his prolonged shooting slump. Standing in the visitor's locker room of the AT&T Center on Monday night, Bradley stopped just short of blaming himself for the team's three-game losing streak. But he took responsibility after the Pistons (14-9) squandered a chance to steal a road victory against one the league's top franchises. "I don't know the last time I scored three points in a game and (shot) 1-for-9," Bradley said. "I guess it's one of those times you just got to chalk it up to the game and get into the gym and get some shots up." The last time Bradley scored three points or fewer in a game where he received significant minutes was when he scored two points for the Boston Celtics on Nov. 10, 2015. The night against the Spurs (16-8) is hopefully rock bottom for Bradley. He is scoring 7.3 points, shooting 27.3 percent (9-for-33) on field goals and 7.7 percent (1-for-13) from 3-point range during the Pistons' three-game losing streak. His shooting woes were emblatic of the entire team's Monday night.
