J.J dunks on Drummond. Drummond dunks on J.J. Kenneth dunks on Kyle. Kyle dunks on Kenneth. Monroe didn’t dunk on JJ or Kenneth but he did dunk on Mozgov. It was an exhilarating night between Denver and Detroit and it was only fitting considering it was the 30 year anniversary of the famous 186-180 Detroit win over Denver.
The Pistons didn’t come close to scoring 186 on this night but they did get the W and scored their most points (126) since 2008 when they scored 136 against, you guessed it, the Nuggets.
“That’s a product of the way Denver plays,” Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks said. “We’re not used to playing at that kind of pace, but we stepped up and made the adjustments to stay with them.”
Despite all the highlights of Faried (11 points), Hickson (15 points), Drummond (18 points), and Singler (10 points), Detroit was lead by Jennings (35 points) and Josh Smith (30/10/8/4) while Randy Foye (25 points) lead the Nuggets.
Here’s a flashback of the highest scoring game in NBA history that happened 30 years ago.
