Detroit Takes Care Of Denver

Posted · Add Comment

The Detroit #Pistons put up another convincing win Saturday night at The Palace of Auburn Hills Saturday night behind stellar games from Brandon Jennings and Josh Smith. The Pistons 126-109 win was the most point they’d score since they defeated the Denver in March of 2008.

Key Points:

  • Brandon Jennings was on fire scoring a season high 35 points on 11-of-22 shooting with 12 assists and just two turnovers.  Another highlight filled night from Brandon, on the night after he narrowly missed a triple double.  Credit Jennings for being a catalyst during their run in the third quarter and pushing the lead to 14.

  • Jennings is currently 4th in the league for PG’s in efficiency in the past five games, and ranked 7th in the past 10.
  • Another reason why the NBA should be ashamed of themselves for Andre Drummond not being an All-Star reserve.  Andre with his Eastern Conference leading 38th double-double scoring 18 points on 8-of-13 shooting, with 15 boards and three blocked shots. Andre’s numbers speak for themselves and watching him makes it evident that he’s a star.
  • The Pistons won with game playing just three off the bench.  Stuckey played 28 minutes, scoring 19, while Caldwell-Pope and Jerebko combined for 14 minutes and zero points.
  • No Bynum again.
  • Josh Smith with 30 points on 14-of-27 shooting with 10 boards, 8 assists, four steals and a blocked shot.  Two almost triple-double’s in two nights from two different Pistons.  That’s nice!

  • The Pistons put up 65 at the half.
  • Just 10 turnovers for the Pistons Saturday night.  Less than half from the night before.
  • Greg Monroe with 14  points and six boards in 30 minutes.
  • It’s clear that Detroit has and issue with Harrellson out, especially when Drummond or Monroe get into foul trouble.

  • Kyle Singler with the start again. Kyle scored 10 on 4-of-10 shooting with three boards, two steals and one assist. He didn’t shoot as well as he did Friday night, but he’s still putting up better numbers offensively that KCP.
  • 66 points in the paint for the Pistons.
  • Monday night at the Palace against the Spurs will not be easy.
