Drummond Drops 29 In Pistons Win

Posted · 2 Comments
Andre Drummond Pistons-vs-Cavs

The #Pistons got their 25th win of the season with a fifth consecutive win against the Cleveland Cavaliers Wednesday night. The 111-104 showcased Andre Drummond as he led the Pistons with a career high 29 points.

Key Points:

  • Though Andre stole the show, Greg Monroe was solid again for Detroit. Greg finished with 23 point, eight boards and four assists in 38 minutes on the floor. It was a Monroe layup with 39 seconds left in the game that gave the Pistons a 105-103 they never relinquished.
  • Stuckey is playing some of his best basketball of late. Rodney, in the starting lineup again, scored 18 with seven assists on the night.
  • Looks like we may not see Calderon again this season…or the next if Detroit doesn’t sign him.
  • A solid 16 from Bynumite off the bench.

  • The let’s foul the big man or the “Hack-a-Shaq” strategy backfired for Cleveland. Andre, who’s not the best free throw shooter went 9-for-17. The Cavs fouled him nine times in the fourth quarter.

Andre Drummond Cartoon Quote“I knew I needed to make free throws for us to win, so I just focused. Some went in, some went out, but all of them were on line. It gave me the chance to score more points. That’s the way you’ve got to look at it.” Via NBA.com

  • Just five turnovers for Detroit on the night.
  • As I watched how well Andre played Wednesday nigh I tweeted out just how I feel about what kind of player he’s going to be. Andre is the best draft pick since Joe Dumars. And I put Grant Hill aside because he was a no-brainer. Dre will be the pick that got away for all the teams that passed on him.

  • Andre put up a double-double with 29 and 11 boards.
  • Knight with 7 on 2-of-11 shooting.
  • Pistons crushed on the boards 49-33.
  • Just a few more to go in what seemed to be a very long season for Pistons fans. Next up, the Bobcats Friday night at the Palace.

    cavs are terrible, I can’t believe we are at the bottom with them.

    This game should never have been a struggle. Neither team wanted it that bad, it was “I score, then I let you score” game. Lack of effort discipline on both sides of the ball.

    Love the cavs fans. They are in it thick and thin. Can’t really say the same about the pistons d town loves winners.

    Three more.

    To finish so near the bottom. Either Frank is fired the day after the season ends . . . or if Frank is kept on, it means Joe D is fired. One of the two is going.

    I know Joe D is feeling the heat. Charlotte has 18 wins, Orlando 20, suns 24 new orleans 27 Cleveland 24, we aren’t going to catch those 5 at the bottom. The wizards are 29 wins, minnesota 29 wins toronto 30 if we finish strong, winning 3 of our last 3 games, or even 2 out of 3, we should catch one of those guys, drop down to 7th same place we had in 2010 and 2011, in 2011 that pick got bumped to 8th and we got Brandon Knight. 7th is also where we obtain Moose from.

    Draft should go Noel, Mclemore, Smart, Bennett, Oladipo, Cody Zeller, and at 7th

    Trey Burke.

    I wouldn’t mind Trey Burke. Let Calderon go unless he’s cheap.

      I think at this point in the season you are excused if you start rooting for losses. The difference between a 5th and 7th pick is huge.

      Then again we sure have been good at 7th. 5th picks: Valanciunas, thomas robinson, and demarcus cousins. . . .

      Ok maybe 7th is better after all :-)
