After winning five consecutive games at the end of last month, Detroit Pistons head coach Dwane Casey is trying to get them back on track during their December woes. Fans thought the Pistons were getting back on track after taking down Boston on Saturday turnovers against Milwaukee added to the number in the loss column.
Blake Griffin (25.4) points per contest led the team in scoring and posted his ninth triple-double of the season in the three-point loss to Milwaukee.
Detroit averages (109.0) ppg which ranks 19th league wide but they shoot just (43.5%) from the field which is 12th in the NBA, and that must improve. What’s worse than that is the (32.5%) from beyond the three-point line. Center Andre Drummond (15.5) rebounds per game which leads a team that grabs (47.5) boards per contest, fourth in the NBA.
It’s plain to see Detroit needs to play through the post. However, Drummond is a liability at the free throw line.
The Piston is a middle of the pack team on defense as they allow (109.9) ppg to opponents on (46.4%) shooting. Detroit knows they’ll be facing a team with plenty of weapons tonight and must play through Drummond and Griffin.
Bovada.Lv list the Detroit Pistons win total at 38 games for 2018-19.
Since trading Jimmy Butler to Philadelphia on November 12th, the Timberwolves are 10-7 SU. Head Coach Tom Thibodeau knows there’s a lot of basketball left in the season and with Butler out of the mix the young Timberwolves are producing. The Timberwolves are 8-3 their last eleven in front of the home crowd which is why a victory tonight is crucial as they’ll play six of their next seven on the road.
Center Karl-Anthony Towns (21.4) ppg is the leader of an offense that puts up (110.8) points per contest, 15th in the NBA.
Thibodeau coached veteran point guard Derrick Rose in Chicago, and the duo led the franchise to a number-one seed in the East, but LeBron James closed the door on their run in 2011. Rose is averaging (18.5) ppg with (4.6) apg as there’s a comfort zone between player and coach which will pay dividends as the season progresses.
Small Forward Andrew Wiggins (16.3) ppg is the teams most talented player, and his defense is improving under Thibodeau. Minnesota along with Utah has been early-season disappointments in the Northwest division while Denver and Oklahoma City are soaring.
A key for a Minnesota win is to make open shots; it’ll be tough inside against the twin towers of Detroit.
