New Orleans Pelicans 103 FinalRecap | Box Score 101 Detroit Pistons
Greg Monroe, PF Shot Chart 25 MIN | 4-8 FG | 0-0 FT | 11 REB | 1 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 5 TO | 8 PTS | +7Monroe played a solid game. But he never felt like a difference maker in this one.8 and 11 in 25 minutes and that’s all Monroe gets too play. The 5 TOs suck and his defense wasn’t exactly inspire, but consider Monroe marginalized.
Josh Smith, SF Shot Chart 36 MIN | 6-12 FG | 0-1 FT | 5 REB | 4 AST | 4 STL | 1 BLK | 2 TO | 13 PTS | +613 and 5 in 36 minutes. For better (at least he played pretty well this game) or for worse (still hugely productive), consider Smith emphasized.
Andre Drummond, C Shot Chart 39 MIN | 9-17 FG | 3-6 FT | 20 REB | 1 AST | 1 STL | 2 BLK | 2 TO | 21 PTS | +11Andre Drummond, C Drummond was awesome. He built up an almost insurmountable lead.
Brandon Jennings, PG Shot Chart 37 MIN | 7-20 FG | 12-14 FT | 1 REB | 7 AST | 2 STL | 1 BLK | 1 TO | 28 PTS | +1Jennings got to the line a lot and only turned the ball over once. And he didn’t get burned on D either (although that’s probably largely because he was defending Brian Roberts who doesn’t really have the potential to burn a team. Still, this was nearly a perfect Jennings game and it was wasted
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, SG Shot Chart 41 MIN | 6-12 FG | 1-1 FT | 2 REB | 2 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 14 PTS | -1KCP played well on offense, but he is there for his defense, and he was the primary culprit in letting Morrow go off in the 4th and steal the game. Unacceptable.
Kyle Singler, SF Shot Chart 24 MIN | 1-5 FG | 0-0 FT | 3 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 3 PTS | -15Singler was useless on both sides of the floor. He earned every bit of his -15.
Will Bynum, PG Shot Chart 11 MIN | 1-2 FG | 2-2 FT | 0 REB | 3 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 5 PTS | -3Bynum played well but wasnt on the court enoguh to make a difference
Rodney Stuckey, SG Shot Chart 27 MIN | 3-9 FG | 3-4 FT | 2 REB | 0 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 9 PTS | -16See Kyle Singler.

When you lose a double digit lead in the final 9 minutes, there was probably some bad coaching. I don’t buy it, but it really does look like a tank job.
