Detroit Pistons: Isaiah Stewart keeps getting better

Rookie Isaiah Stewart has been trending up after the last five games.

He’s had three games in a row with double-digit rebounds and over the last five games has eight blocks and five steals on the defensive end.

He is now third overall in rebounding for rookies and fourth in blocked shots, not bad for a guy who is coming off the bench and playing 18 minutes per game on average.

Beef Stew played 28 minutes against the Knicks and should continue to get more as the season progresses.

Detroit Pistons: Saddiq Bey is the model of consistency

Saddiq Bey just keeps chugging along, racking up double digit scoring totals and shooting the ball better than just about any rookie in the NBA.

Bey has now scored in double-digits ten games in a row and 11 out of his last 12 overall. He is also grabbing 5.5 rebounds per game during that stretch and is now averaging four overall for the season.

There is a good chance that Bey is going to end up averaging over 10 points and five rebounds while shooting 40 percent or better from the 3-point line, numbers that exceed a lot of expectations people had for Bey coming into the season.
