Friday, November 15, finds the Detroit Pistons take on the Charlotte Hornets. Both teams are seeking to end losing streaks and capture their fifth win this season.
Last season, the Charlotte Hornets won only 39 games but four of those came in the sweep of the Pistons. Detroit holds the all-time record having bested the Hornets in 58 of their 111 matches.
The Pistons got their superstar back this week when Blake Griffin returned to play against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
As is typical for players returning from injury Detroit rested both Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose in the second game of the back-to-back in Miami.
Prior to the match in Miami, Andre Drummond recorded a double-double in every game this season but facing Bam Adebayo was a tough cover for AD who didn’t get his way.
Subsequently, Drummond’s consecutive double-double run came up one rebound short as he collected 16 points and nine rebounds. His lack of rebounds was compounded as the team got beaten on the glass by the Heat 42 to 32.
Luke Kennard continued his breakout season leading the Pistons with 22 points while Christian Wood (16), Markieff Morris (13), Thon Maker (12), and Langston Galloway (11) were the other double-figure performers.
Tony Snell is dealing with a hip flexor but expected to suit up versus the Hornets. Khyri Thomas (foot) is out until late December while Reggie Jackson (stress reaction in back) will be out until at least early January.
Although the Hornets got off to a surprisingly effective start to the season they’ve seemingly come back to earth losing four games in a row.
Charlotte consistently put themselves behind the eight ball allowing teams to build double-digit leads forcing the team to play catchup for the entirely of the game.
Still, during the losing streak, other than the Celtics blowout they’ve been in every game. The recent loss to the Grizzlies though highlights the fact this is a young team who won’t always have the ball bounce their way and are learning how to win as they progress through this rebuilding phase.
Terry Rozier tied his career scoring output with 33 points. Malik Monk who has been inconsistent had his best game of the season scoring 20 points.
Devonte’ Graham is also having a breakthrough season following a sub-par rookie campaign. He scored 19 points for the ninth such double-figure achievement of his 11 games this season. Last year in 46 games he only reached that benchmark on eight occasions.
The other double-digit scorers were Cody Zeller (16) and Miles Bridges (14).
Dwayne Bacon (sore right knee) missed the game versus the Grizzlies but is probable versus the Pistons. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (migraine) is dealing with a migraine headache that has held him out this season in all but one game.
Nic Batum (finger fracture) may return sometime this weekend.
