Brandon Jennings recorded his 4th double-double this season, scoring 15 points and registering 13 assists, to help the Detroit Pistons dominate the Milwaukee Bucks, 113-94. The Pistons put together a very efficient performance, turning it over on only 10 possessions while totaling 28 assists. Detroit (6-8) has now won back-to-back games after defeating Brooklyn Nets on Sunday.
Jennings finished 5-10 from the field (4-6 on 3-point attempts) in a solid performance. Other top performers for Detroit were Greg Monroe with 16 points and 6 rebounds, Andre Drummond with 12 points and 8 rebounds, and Josh Smith with 10 points and 7 rebounds. Despite the loss, John Henson put up 15 points off the bench for Milwaukee on 7-12 shooting. He also tallied 7 rebounds. Khris Middleton chipped in 14 points and 5 rebounds.
As expected, the Bucks offense, which averages the fourth-most errors in the NBA (TO% of 17.1%), struggled with 18 turnovers against a Detroit defense that forces the third-most (opponents' TO% of 17.9%). The Pistons combined an eFG% of 61.3% with 41.4% 3-point shooting. They are 1-0 this year when registering marks above 55% and 40% in those respective statistics. The Bucks, on the other hand, are winless (0-2) when allowing opponents to hit those marks.
Milwaukee (2-11) has now dropped their last 9 consecutive games.
Coming up, the Pistons battle the Chicago Bulls, who are 6-7 on the season. The Bucks match up against the Washington Wizards, currently sitting at 6-8 this year.
