Detroit Pistons Need Brandon Knight To Be Consistent Ball Handler

+Read full article

Tim Fuller-US PRESSWIRE

Brandon Knight is anxious to start his sophomore season with the Detroit Pistons and even looking back in his rookie season, has always been confident that he and teammate Rodney Stuckey can combine as two of the top ball handlers in the NBA.

The Pistons have plenty of faith in Knight’s ball handling abilities and he seems ready to go for what could be a playoff contending season.

“As long as we take care of it, we kind of limit points in transition, which is something that has kind of hurt us in past games,” Knight said. “If we take care of the ball it’s a big plus for us.”

That’s where Knight comes in for the Pistons. It’s imperative for him to have a banner season in setting up the offense for his team. He’s also hoping to help the team maintain its focus down the stretch when it’s battling for the lead.

“As long as we take care of it, we kind of limit points in transition, which is something that has kind of hurt us in past games. If we take care of the ball it’s a big plus for us,” he said.

But Knight continues to work well with Stuckey, which is a plus for both players and the team.

“It’s great because I can play off the ball, he can play off the ball and we can play off of each other and get feedback off of each other,” he said. “That’s a great way to play and something I’m sure we will explore later on, but it’s definitely good having two ball handlers that can both attack and create for the team.”
