The Pistons are coming off of an annihilation of the struggling Magic on Monday night at home, 115-89. All five Detroit starters scored in double digits, with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope leading the charge with 21 points and 6 rebounds, making five three-pointers along the way. Andre Drummond added 17 points and was his usual self off the glass with six offensive and six defensive rebounds (for his 30th double-double on the season). The Pistons find themselves inching towards taking over Indiana for third place in the Central Division, a team they sit only a half game behind. Poised for a push into the Playoff picture as mid-season approaches, the Pistons will need to improve their 7-11 record away from the Palace of Auburn Hills.
The Celtics also recorded a W on Monday as Jae Crowder put in 25 points to lead Boston to a 103-94 victory over the Nets in Brooklyn. The performance was a career-best for Crowder, who also added 6 rebounds and made 7 of 8 shots from the charity stripe. Crowder is averaging 13.9 points, 4.2 rebounds and 5.3 assists in the team’s 2015-16 campaign. The Celtics’ leading scorer on the season, Isaiah Thomas, put in 19 points while Evan Turner recorded a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds. Boston is a better road team than they are at TD Garden, a trend that will be tested in January as the team plays the majority of their games away from home.
