Detroit Pistons v Brooklyn Nets

Caris LeVert scored 23 points and the Nets gave D'Angelo Russell a bruising welcome back to Brooklyn with a 129-88 rout of the Golden State Warriors.

On the eve of the NBA's trade deadline, the Warriors held out Glenn Robinson III and Alec Burks, who had been two of their most productive players lately.

The guys who did play were run off the floor, falling behind 20-4, missing 20 of their 22 3-point attempts in the first half and trailing by as many as 44 points.

Golden State finished 5 for 39 (13 percent) from 3-point range.
