Detroit Pistons 75 Final

Recap | Box Score

114 San Antonio Spurs
Jason Maxiell, PF 16 MIN | 0-2 FG | 1-2 FT | 2 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK | 0 TO | 1 PTS | -11Tonight, Jason Maxiell only had one point in 16 minutes of play, while racking up four fouls. He didn’t have any turnovers, which is the only thing that gives him a passing grade.
Greg Monroe, C 30 MIN | 6-13 FG | 4-4 FT | 8 REB | 4 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 4 TO | 16 PTS | -33In 30 minutes, Monroe almost got a double-double, but had a relatively low shooting percentage for a big man and turned the ball over four times.
Jose Calderon, PG 28 MIN | 6-10 FG | 0-0 FT | 3 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 14 PTS | -30Calderon played a mediocre game, but the thing stopping him from getting a higher grade was the two assists he had. He was brought in to Detroit to get the ball to the big men, and that’s not what he did tonight. He did shoot well, however.
Brandon Knight, PG 36 MIN | 3-14 FG | 1-3 FT | 6 REB | 6 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 8 PTS | -25Brandon Knight played another horrid game, going 3-14 from the field and 1-6 from three point range. Although he had six assists, he countered that with three turnovers.
Kyle Singler, SG 24 MIN | 2-10 FG | 0-0 FT | 2 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 5 PTS | -21Singler played 23 minutes tonight, took a lot of shots and didn’t make many of them. He went 2-10 from the field and had two turnovers.
Charlie Villanueva, PF 25 MIN | 4-11 FG | 0-0 FT | 10 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 10 PTS | -19Villanueva was one of the only Pistons to not have an awful game tonight. He got a double-double and didn’t shoot too poorly. He played alright on defense, too. Nothing spectacular, but enough to make a good impression.
Jonas Jerebko, PF 18 MIN | 3-9 FG | 4-4 FT | 5 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 10 PTS | -6Jerebko didn’t play a ton tonight, but while he was on the floor he shot below average, had two turnovers and three fouls. He won’t earn himself more playing time if he continues to play like this.
Khris Middleton, SF 16 MIN | 1-5 FG | 0-0 FT | 0 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 2 PTS | -13Tonight, Middleton showed Lawrence Frank why he doesn’t play a lot. In his 15 minutes of playing time, he shot 20% from the field and had four personal fouls.
Viacheslav Kravtsov, C 7 MIN | 1-1 FG | 1-3 FT | 5 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 3 PTS | -9Kravtsov barely saw the court tonight, but in his short stint out there he didn’t miss a shot and grabbed five rebounds. He would’ve made a bigger impact had he played more.
Will Bynum, PG 11 MIN | 2-3 FG | 2-2 FT | 2 REB | 1 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 4 TO | 6 PTS | -2Bynum also didn’t play a lot tonight, but was efficient in the scoring department while playing. He did have four turnovers, however.
Rodney Stuckey, PG 19 MIN | 0-5 FG | 0-0 FT | 2 REB | 1 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 0 PTS | -18In 19 minutes, Rodney Stuckey made absolutely no impact. He went 0-5 from the floor and that’s about it. Not many bright spots tonight for Stuckey.
Kim English, SG 11 MIN | 0-3 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 0 PTS | -8Just like Rodney Stuckey, Kim English did not make much of an impact tonight. He missed all three of his shots and had two turnovers.
Lawrence FrankLet’s be frank (pun intended) here. He coached his team to a 114-75 loss. That’s unacceptable. He played his starters, who were obviously not making any plays, way too much and they ended up losing by 39 points. There’s no excuse for that.
