Will Cade Cunningham play in todays afternoon tilt against the Minnesota Timberwolves? That seems to really be the only question that matters. The Pistons were missing Cunningham when they fell to the Wolves 128-117 on Feb. 3 in Detroit. In that game, Detroit was able to keep pace in a shootout with Minnesota until running out of gas in the second half. The Pistons could really use Cunninghams offense and his defense in trying to slow down Anthony Edwards, who scored 21 points in the previous meeting. Game VitalsWhen: 3:30 p. m Micah Potter Jersey.

Karl-Anthony Towns seems to be settling in nicely in Chris Finchs offense, and Finch has brought Minnys defense from deplorable to decidedly average, which is really all they need with the kind of offense they can deliver on most nights. The biggest issue for the Pistons will be to simply slow these Wolves down. Minnesota sports the fourth-fastest pace in the NBA and Detroit, especially recently, has had absolutely dreadful transition defense. The Pistons allowed the Wolves to score 23 fast break points in their previous matchup, and its hard to beat any team in the NBA when youre a minus-19 in fast break points Chris Smith Jersey. The Timberwolves also force opponents into a high number of miscues, which is another area the Pistons can really struggle with at times.
