Brandon Knight says balanced scoring is what’s responsible for the Detroit Pistons‘ current three-game winning streak.
He’s right. But he’s also right if he wanted to say that the Pistons have to keep getting that same type of balanced scoring whether the game be home or away.
“Definitely, everybody chipping in and there is a lot of balance,” Knight said. “I have to congratulate my teammates for the way we’ve been playing together and how guys have been stepping it up and really doing their part. I think that is what is getting us a boost, especially our second unit, so we definitely have to congratulate those guys.”
He’s especially referring to Will Bynum, Austin Daye, Rodney Stuckey and Charlie Villanueva.
The Pistons still haven’t proven they can win on the road, an essential aspect of being a successful NBA team. But at least they’re starting to protect their home court.
“Anytime you win you feel good. It masks a lot of things you do wrong when you win,” Knight said. “Definitely I’m excited about it and I think we’re turning the corner. We just want to continue to build, continue to improve and continue to use this home stretch to our advantage and play well at home.”
In a recent 103-97 Pistons win over the Sacramento Kings, Knight was able to play against another Kentucky alum.
“DeMarcus (Cousins) is my guy,” Knight said. “He is a great player and I enjoy playing against him, you know going to the same college. It definitely felt good to get a win.”
