Andrew Wiggins says he's worth a max contract. Yet, he and the young Timberwolves disappointed last season after exorbitantly high expectations.
Last night I took a L, but today I bounced back.
That was the theme for last nights game vs the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Detroit Pistons showed grit, when they could have easily laid down and been an emotional no show — after the blow out loss to the Indiana Pacers, the night before.
Andre Drummond (20 points & 16 rebounds), came out aggressive early. He set the tone for the team, when they were struggling to score early on. He was crashing the boards — harder than usual. He was clearly on a mission.
The first quarter and a half, it looked as though it was going to be a blow out. It was the Kyrie Irving show, starring LeBron James, and the Cavs pushed the lead to 15. It seemed to be a Cleveland win on the horizon, when the Pistons did their best He-Man impression:

Ok, after watching the NBA Rising Stars & the 3-Point Shootout, I think I've finally arrived at Acceptance Avenue. The NBA is a shooters league now, and it's Not my era anymore.

Truth time: I’m killing on NBA 2k with the Pistons right now, to make myself feel better. KCP is shooting primarily mid range shots, there’s a ton of pick & roll with Andre, and Reggie is racking up assist. If only this were real life.
On to the real game.
The Detroit Pistons, dug themselves another massive hole, this time against the Milwaukee Bucks. At one point the Pistons were down as much as 22. They started off extremely slow. Sluggish even. Scoring just 19 points in the first quarter, and 15 in the second. Not exactly a recipe for victory.
Out of 9 back to backs the Pistons have played so far this season, they have only successfully won both games once. Which is a big reason for the reason 26-30 record.
