Timberwolves Dominate In Detroit

Posted · 1 Comment

Watching the Pistons in Tuesday night’s game at the Palace of Auburn Hills against the Minnesota Timberswolves, you’d bet all the money you had that this team could never have beaten the NBA Champs a week earlier.  Detroit looked terrible against a mediocre Minnesota team losing, 121-94 on their home court.

Key Points:

  • Brandon Jennings led the way for Detroit with 20 points on 8-of-16 shooting with six assists on the night. The scoring numbers are good and his assists keep growing, but it Jennings doesn’t start playing better defense and stop turning the ball over this team is in for some serious ups and downs. The Timberwolves back-court made Brandon look like a high school player scoring on him with ease.  He finished the game with six of the Pistons 20 turnovers.
  • Kevin Love and Minnesota’s center Pekovic  out-shined the Pistons Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe.  Love was outstanding scoring 26 with 16 boards and seven assists.
  • Minnesota just played harder going to the line 33 times to the Pistons 16 foul attempts.  I will however say that the refs were a little biased toward the visiting team.
  • Best part of the game for a Pistons fan was this behind the back assist from Brandon Jennings to a trailing Andre Drummond for the Dunk.

  • This team need to work on their defense more than Gigi needs a shave and a haircut.
  • Speaking of Datome, he missed all of his six shots he attempted in garbage time.  He may never get going if he doesn’t get consistent minutes.  You can’t ask someone who’s never been in the NBA to hit his shots at a drop of a hat.  If he could do that he would have been a NBA player a long time ago.
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had a career-high 16 points and grabbed four boards.  He’s improving every game he’s out there.
  • Never thought I’d say this but, this team misses Rodney Stuckey who’s still sidelined with an injury.
  • Chauncey Billups finally returned, but was just 2-of-7 for seven points in 18 minutes.
  • Josh Smith put up 17 on 7-of-14 shooting making just one of this five three-point attempts.
  • The Timberwolves led by as much as 30.

  • Andre Drummond’s streak of six straight games with six or more offensive rebounds ended.  He finished the game with eight boards, eight points and two blocked shots.
  • I’m ready to wash this one away, but that all depends on what they do against the Pelicans on Wednesday night.
