Game Preview: Pistons Face Young and Hungry Timberwolves
After an impressive blow-out win over the Pelicans Wednesday night, the Pistons look to replicate their performance Friday night when they host the youthful Minnesota Timberwolves.
Timberwolves’ star Karl Anthony-Towns has never beaten the Pistons. Detroit’s star Andre Drummond has made it incredibly difficult for the big KAT to function in the low post. Unfortunately for Minnesota’s big man, Andre Drummond has been playing at an incredibly high level in his last four games. In those games Drummond averages 19 points and 15 rebounds.
Minnesota won five of their last six games before getting demolished by the defending NBA champions last night. Both teams have under succeeded thus far and are in dire need for a win.
Probable Starting Lineups:
PG: Reggie Jackson
SG: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
SF: Marcus Morris
PF: Jon Leur
C: Andre Drummond
PG: Ricky Rubio
SG; Zach LaVine
SF: Andrew Wiggins
PF: Gorgui Dieng
C: Karl Anthony-Towns
The match-up between these two young and hungry teams begins at 7:30PM ET and will be broadcasted live on Fox Sports Detroit.
