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.
- 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!
