The Detroit Pistons aren’t off to the best of starts this season. They are 3-6 and haven’t looked too sharp at all. The only thing, in my opinion, they have going for them are Greg Monroe and second year star Andre Drummond.
Yes, I know they improved with sexy names this offseason with the additions of Brandon Jennings and Josh Smith, but those aren’t exactly the players you want when trying to build a team. Jennings last night shot 8-22, even though he did have 14 assists which is nice — but a point guard shouldn’t be shooting the ball 22 times.
Smith had a better game last night, going 7-10 from the field and scoring 18 points after being benched earlier in the season.
The highlight of the night had to come from Andre Drummond and Brandon Jennings. Drummond quickly dished off the ball to Jennings, who was running the wing. Jennings and Drummond knew what was going to happen before they even crossed mid-court. Jennings, now leading the fast break, threw the ball off the backboard and that’s when Drummond stepped up. Watch the above video to see what Drummond did.
The one question I have from the game is, was Drummond’s alley-oop better than the one that Lakers guard Wesley Johnson pulled off? After watching the two, vote on who had the better dunk.
