Pistons Stomp The Nets

Posted · Add Comment
Andre Drummond Career High in Rebounds

The #Pistons treated their fans to a game they wished they would see more often, especially at The Palace of Auburn Hills.  Detroit dismantled the Brooklyn Nets in a game that at one point led by as much as 29.  Brandon Jennings and Andre Drummond put up special numbers in the Pistons 111-95 win Friday night.

Key Points:

  • The Pistons clearly dominated the first half, but let the Nets get close late in the game. Brooklyn got the lead down to just nine with a little more than a minute to play.
  • Six Pistons in double figures.
  • The Pistons had a whopping 52 points in the paint, while dominating the boards 57-40.
  • Chauncey Billups, who hadn’t played since January 10th played nine minutes, scoring two points and two assist. Billups knee injury has been sidelined him, but the fact that he returned the game after Cheeks and Bynum had their argument during the Magic game doesn’t seem like much of a coincidence. Bynum was a DNP.
  • Brandon Jennings let the Pistons with 26 points, 10 boards and nine assists  missing a triple-double by just one assist.  Jennings had a chance for that last assist in the final seconds of the game, but instead drained a three-pointer to end the game.

  • Andre Drummond with another double-double and another career high. Andre grabbed 22 rebounds, the most since McDyess did it in 2009 for Detroit. Drummond added 16 points, a steal and a blocked shot in 39:51 on the floor. It’s such a travesty that Drummond won’t represent this team in the All-Star game.
  • Monore with 12 points and 7 assists.
  • Looks like we won’t see much of Josh Harrellson anytime soon, an MRI showed a meniscus tear in his knee. There is no timetable on his return.
  • Detroit still needs to cleanup their turnovers. The Pistons with 22 on the night, 8 of them coming from Jennings.

  • Fun to watch for Pistons fans.
  • Rodney Stuckey with 14 points in 28 minutes.
  • A 20-5 run in the first quarter set the tone for this win.
  • Kyle Singler, who started for KCP dropped 16 on 6-of-13 shooting. Singler, who’s in there for the offense gave Detroit a considerable boost, especially when they were making their early run.
  • Josh Smith had some highlights in the win. Smith put up 23 points on 9-of-16 shooting in 35 minutes on the floor. He added seven assists, eight boards and a whopping 4 blocked shots.
  • Pistons fans hope Saturday night’s game against Denver at The Palace is as enjoyable to watch as this one was.
