The 10-11 #Pistons will host the 9-11 Minnesota Timberwolves at the Palace of Auburn Hills Tuesday evening. Detroit, who were on a roll before losing to the Heat at home on Sunday, would like to take care of a Timberwolves team that has won the last six against Detroit.
The good: Chauncey Billups will finally play Tuesday night for Detroit. The Timberwolves have hit a bad patch and are losers of six of their last seven games on the road.
The bad: The Wolves will have Kevin Love back on the floor, who can give any team trouble. Minnesota has been terrible defensively of late giving up 108.2 points and 52.2 percent shooting in their last six games.
The unknown: Rodney Stuckey is listed as questionable, while Bynum is still listed as doubtful with his left adductor strain.
Stat: Andre Drummond still leads the NBA in field goal percentage with 63.5%
Fact: Andre Drummond needs one steal for his 100th career steal.
Fact: The Pistons are first in the NBA in steals this season, averaging 9.8 steals per game.
Tip off is at 7:30 pm and will be broadcast on Fox Sports Detroit . If you can’t catch the game on TV, catch it on the radio over at 97.1 The Ticket.
the refs had it in for us. I think it was 20 or so free throws to 3 after the half. After the half, they eased up and gave the pistons a few calls. The refs didn’t have to throw the game to the wolves because k love was hitting every 3 and would have won just on that. KCP played very well, and surprisingly so did Jerebko his best game of the year. Drummond, moose, jennings josh not so good. Billups looked 100 years old can’t guard anybody, but glad to see him healthy since siva can’t really rest jennings. Datome looked horrible. People want to know why he’s glued to the bench dude has no defense. He does have a shot but if it’s not falling, he’s got no NBA game. I liked the minutes from Mitchell, guy has hops. Apparently Shabazz Muhammad is still in the NBA! got to see him in garbage time.
Pistons bench looks weak with Stuckey out with an injury. It is funny how last year he was so bad and this year he is having a great year.
