Entering Sunday’s game at 10-5, the Pistons and Timberwolves have been near the top of the standings nearly all season long.
Ultimately, it was the Pistons who got the win, with the game going down to the last minute before they pulled away behind Drummond’s 20 points and 16 rebounds.
For the Wolves, they were led by Jimmy Butler, who tallied 26 points, 10 rebounds, and 4 assists.
The Pistons win keeps them at second place in the East and continues a stretch of great basketball for the team. As one of the biggest surprises of the early season, the Pistons are looking the best they’ve ever looked in years.
Still, the doubts about their ability to keep up with the Cavs and Celtics continue. Do they really have enough to compete with the East’s elite?
They’re a long way off from proving so, but, with wins like these, they are certainly piling up evidence in their favor.
