The 3-11 Pistons are in Minnesota to take on the 5-8 Timberwolves, who just offered their anchor Kevin Love a reported 4 year 70 million dollar contract extension.
“Last season it took the Timberwolves 23 games to record six victories but with the lowly Pistons (3-11) in town, Minnesota has a very good chance to reach that mark much sooner.” The Pistons are “lowly” according to NBA.com and I have to agree.
- The good:
- The bad: Detroit! No Charlie V who didn’t make the trip and Will Bynum is still listed as day to day.
- The unknown: Will Greg Monroe bounce back after scoring just 4 last night going up against Kevin Love? Ricky Rubio vs. Brandon Knight…who’s going to win the battle of the rookies?
Sadly, I’m more excited to see what Ricky Rubio has to offer than anything Detroit has been doing lately. Just being real.
Tip off is at 8:00 pm and will be broadcast on Fox Sports. Matt Dery will be talking to Joe Dumars at 7:10 on 97.1 The Ticket, Matt doesn’t mess around, be sure to tune in and listen.
