The 5-8 #Pistons are back home to play a the second game of a back-to-back against the 2-10 Milwaukee Bucks Monday night. Detroit could be starting a roll after their 109-97 win in Brooklyn Sunday afternoon. The Bucks are prime for the taking being that they are the heels of their worst losing streak in 16 years.
- The good: Mr. Rodney Stuckey has turned into the best player on the Pistons team putting them on his back and keeping them in game. Andre Drummond’s new jump hook is pretty awesome too, keep and eye out for it. The Pistons won 3-of-4 against the Bucks last season and seven of their last 12.
- The bad: The Pistons new acquisitions Josh Smith and Brandon Jennings have been a disappointment this season. The organization was hoping the two would put this team over the top, but they’ve each regressed this season. Jennings, who will play his former team for the first time Monday night, averaged 17.0 points and 5.7 assists in four seasons with the Bucks.
- The unknown: It’s still not known if Chauncey Billups or Will Bynum will be back, they are each still listed as day-to-day.
Stat: Andre Drummond still leads the NBA in field goal percentage with 66.4%
Fact: Greg Monroe averaged 17.0 points and 10.5 rebounds in four games against Milwaukee last season.
Fact: Khris Middleton, who’s now in Milwaukee after the Brandon Jennings for Brandon Knight trade scored a career high 20 in the Bucks last game.
