The Pistons Drop Another To The Timberwolves

Posted · 2 Comments
Brandon Knight Pistons vs Timberwolves

The #Pistons once again could not convert down the stretch as they lost their 52nd game of the season to the Timberwolves 101-107 in Minneapolis.  Don’t think they didn’t have a chance though, a Brandon Knight driving layup with 20 seconds left on the clock had the Pistons within two points (101-103). Detroit had to foul and the Timberwolves free throws were made leading to another Piston loss.

Key Points:

  • The officiating was very noticeably swallowing whistles, so much so that it got rough towards the end of the game. Late in the fourth quarter Pekovic clocked Brandon Knight so hard to the ground with not so much as a glance from the officials that he went to the bench on the next play to get his mask to protect himself. One thing I love about Knight is that he doesn’t back down and he plays all out every time he hits the floor.
  • Another game and another stepping stone to Andre Drummond’s productivity. Drummond finished with nine points, a steal, three blocked shots and 10 boards in 30 minutes on the floor. He’s young, he’s smart and I wouldn’t want to be on the end of this stare…ever.

  • If this is the real Rodney Stuckey, where the heck has he been? Stuckey with another fantastic game dropping 20 points, 4 assists and wight boards in 27 minutes off the bench for Detroit.
  • Everyone with turnover issues in this one. I can’t ever imagine the championship Pistons teams turning the ball over into the double digits let alone giving it away 24 times in a game.
  • Take care of the ball!
  • Brandon Knight led all scorers with 25 points, two steals, six assists and two boards in 40 minutes on the floor, not to mention standing up to a oafish Pekovic after he set one two many screens on him.
  • Jerebko keeps playing hard and keeps making it hard not to give him minutes.
  • I like the way he plays, but Kyle Singler is not a starter in this league…yet.
  • Monroe with 16 points and six boards.

  • Didn’t the Pistons learn from the last time they played the worst three-point shooting team in the league? This team needs a ton of work on the defensive end.
  • It’s pretty obvious that this team is going to look very different come next season.
  • The Bulls Sunday at the Palace is likely to be the Pistons 53rd loss.
