Detroit Pistons Need More Consistency In Guard Play

Will Bynum can usually be counted upon to come though for the Detroit Pistons. Case in point was earlier this week in London in a loss to the New York Knicks.

Bynum had one of his better NBA games of the season in almost 30 minutes of play. Bynum had 22 points. He just needs to keep scoring at a consistent basis if the Pistons are to be a legitimate playoff contender.

“We need to get as many wins as possible. We have to take the positives and build from it,” Bynum said.

Bynum comes off the bench and continues to be among the most dangerous weapons for the Pistons. Brandon Knight just can’t seem to be consistent at the guard spot as a starter and has had some lousy games lately. Bynum is usually quick to come off the bench and provide a needed spark.

The Pistons need steady play from Bynum as their other point guard. He started the season slow but has been coming on very strong in recent months. If the Pistons are to make a drive for a playoff spot, they need consistency from the guard position. But the intent is for Knight to start and put in a lot of minutes and then for Bynum to pick up the slack and not miss a beat.

Bynum isn’t quite the team leader like Tayshaun Prince and Greg Monroe. But he can still inspire the team with his play. The Pistons need more consistency from all their players, Bynum included, if they’re to have a more consistent second half of the season.
