Brooklyn avoids season sweep by Detroit

Detroit Pistons 104 FinalRecap | Box Score 116 Brooklyn Nets
Greg Monroe, PF Shot Chart 25 MIN | 3-11 FG | 0-2 FT | 9 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 6 PTS | -13Monroe was the worst possible version of himself, getting torched by both Pierce and Teletovic while failing to exploit their lack of size.
Josh Smith, SF Shot Chart 30 MIN | 7-13 FG | 0-0 FT | 4 REB | 3 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 17 PTS | -15Josh Smith took stupid shots… more of them went in than normal. Good job, I guess?
Kyle Singler, SF Shot Chart 39 MIN | 5-9 FG | 4-4 FT | 1 REB | 1 AST | 2 STL | 2 BLK | 0 TO | 16 PTS | -13Singler did a good job on Joe Johnson, producing a comparable line to the all-star.
Andre Drummond, C Shot Chart 42 MIN | 10-14 FG | 3-7 FT | 18 REB | 2 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 23 PTS | +1As predicted, Drummond feasted on a pathetic rotation of bigs that had no business being assigned to deal with him.
Brandon Jennings, PG Shot Chart 27 MIN | 3-11 FG | 1-2 FT | 5 REB | 5 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 4 TO | 9 PTS | -5Jennings was just flat out awful. he perpetually looked a step slow, he was sloppy with the ball, and he made Shaun Livingston look like a star.
Jonas Jerebko, PF Shot Chart 24 MIN | 6-9 FG | 3-4 FT | 5 REB | 4 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 16 PTS | +2Jerebko has really made the most of the second half of this season. He legitimately looks like a rotation-caliber player. But the Pistons still have guys who need the minutes more.
Peyton Siva, PG Shot Chart 21 MIN | 1-5 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 3 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 2 PTS | -7I am okay with Siva getting big minutes, but his only real asset is that he can help a team lose. Better to evaluate players who are still question marks.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, SG Shot Chart 7 MIN | 1-3 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 2 PTS | +5KCP plays a very minor role on the team, even while on the floor. So he needs more court time than most to really evaluate. seven minutes doesn’t cut it.
Rodney Stuckey, SG Shot Chart 25 MIN | 5-13 FG | 2-2 FT | 2 REB | 3 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 13 PTS | -15Stuckey’s game couldn’t possibly get any more mediocre than this.
John Loyer
Teams usually tighten up their rotations when getting a couple more wins is significantly more important than player evaluation and health. Why is Loyer playing so few guys?Does this man have any plan at all?
