Luke Kennard 19 Points Full Highlights (1/29/2019)

An observation from the Bucks-Pistons game that Pistons fans have probably been observing for the whole season: the ball movement got way better for them once Blake Griffin sat down. Like, the Bucks were getting totally bamboozled by the amount of passing going on. Then Griffin comes back in, and it’s back to pretending he’s…

Luke Kennard 19 Points Full Highlights (1/19/2019)

Luke Kennard only needed to look to the opposing bench to find the player who he should be trying to emulate. No, it’s not Kosta Koufos, even though Kennard is trying to emulate Koufos’ cataclysmic hair loss. I’m talking about Buddy Hield here. Kennard and Hield are similar players. Both are shooting guards who are…

Luke Kennard 22 Points Full Highlights (1/18/2019)

If Luke Kennard is planning on making a career out of step-in midrange jumpers, I’m here to tell him not do that. He can still shoot those shots sometimes, but he has to offset those “bad” shots with lots of three-point chucking. That’s what teams and coaches want these days. No one cares how aesthetic…

Luke Kennard 16 Points Full Highlights (12/30/2018)

New suggestion for the Pistons’ commentators: whenever Luke Kennard knocks down a three-pointer or hits one of his smooth, confident midrange jimbos, you have to yell “He just put them in the KENNEL!” This works on so many levels. It’s like an onion of metaphors where you keep peeling away layers to find more layers:…

Luke Kennard Career High 28 Points Full Highlights (12/10/2018)

The Pistons need a shooter. Just one. They don’t really have any right now and it’s costing them as they fall in the standings. Langston Galloway, prior to tonight, was probably their best active one. That just doesn’t cut it, maybe in 1978, but not in 2018. Note: I’m not counting Blake Griffin even though…

Here’s a fun little tip for Pistons fans: if you really mess with the colors on your YouTube-viewing device, you can make it so that Luke Kennard looks like Donovan Mitchell! It also helps if you squint a little bit, also, try to ignore the fact that the court is an odd shade of pink…

Luke Kennard 18 Points/2 Dunks Full Highlights (4/8/2018)

At the rate he’s going, Luke Kennard will be one of just two rookies who will end the season shooting over 40% from three. He’s at 41% right now, and would have to miss quite a few of them to do enough damage to bring his percentage below the 40% mark. The other player to…

Luke Kennard 16 Points Full Highlights (3/20/2018)

The Pistons are getting to the point where they should give up trying to win games and just develop some talent for next year. Note that this different from tanking. They are way too far ahead (behind) of the other tanking teams for additional losing to help their draft slot. There is a subtle difference…
