Henry Ellenson’s sweet shooting draws praise from Pistons — Detroit Free Press
During Sunday’s practice rookie forward Henry Ellenson made a lot of shots. Then Marcus Morris made a tremendous quote:
SLAM ranks Andre Drummond No. 22 in their top 50 players — SLAM
Andre was ranked No. 31 by SLAM going into last season.
Joel Anthony playing good enough hopefully to secure 15th spot on Spurs — mySA.com
The Spurs have played two preseason games and Joel has performed nicely in both (eight points and four blocks in the first game), perhaps as nicely as a third-string center could in such circumstances. I’m rooting for him to stick in San Antonio as I’m sure most Pistons fans are too. Here’s the review after the Spurs second preseason tilt:
Fighting for No. 15
The first three quarters of this game belonged largely to the Spurs' starters and key reserves.
Joel Anthony was the first of the players on training camp contracts to enter the game. He was inserted midway through the third period.
Then, with the starters' night complete, the Spurs sent out Nicolas Laprovittola and Bryn Forbes to start the fourth quarter alongside Jonathon Simmons, Davis Bertans and Dewayne Dedmon.
Ryan Arcidiacono and Patricio Garino never got off the bench.
None of those who played particularly stood out.
Anthony, who grabbed three rebounds, scored two points and had one huge swat in 12 minutes, probably made the biggest impact.
Happy Detroit Pistons preseason home opener, y’all! Drink beer, eat chips...or better yet, enjoy dunking carrots in hummus!
