Jennings: Augustin should start if he's playing better

Struggling starter offers to come off the bench. Is it a sign of maturity or yet another instance of pouting from a player with a long history of it? Detroit dropped their second game in two nights Thursday, falling 97-91 to the Minnesota Timberwolves, but there was incremental progress for the Pistons all over the floor. That includes progress from Brandon Jennings who had four points and six assists a night after recording just four points and two assists and being largely invisible. But there was one important metric where Jennings regressed -- minutes. After averaging 34 minutes in his...

Brandon Jennings surprised by fourth-quarter benching

Jennings was cemented to the bench in the fourth quarter of the Pistons' season opener. Prior to the season, our own Mike Payne backed up his answer as to who won the preseason point guard battle between Brandon Jennings and D.J. Augustin, giving the nod to Augustin. Stan Van Gundy seemed to disagree, at least to start the season, plugging Brandon Jennings into the starting lineup on Wednesday night for the season opener. But maybe we should pay more attention to overall minutes and, specifically, which point guard should be finishing close games. That may ultimately be the real...

Previewing the 2014-15 Pistons: Brandon Jennings

Brandon Jennings brings swag, but Stan Van Gundy demands accountability. How can Van Gundy get the most out of Jennings in 2014-15? In a word -- SWAG. It's all that's exciting and all that's wrong about Brandon Jennings. Swag is the demeanor, the confidence, the half-court three pointer and the no-look pass. It's also the hero ball disaster, the fall-away long two and the willful ignorance of defense and accountability. The swagger of Brandon Jennings is a blessing and a curse, and we as fans collectively celebrate and condemn this characteristic over every other play. If swag has an...

Previewing the 2014-15 Pistons: D.J. Augustin

The Pistons improved their depth by signing D.J. Augustin. Is he good enough to start in front of Brandon Jennings? D.J. Augustin might be the best backup point guard the Pistons have had in a quarter century. But is he good enough to beat out Brandon Jennings for the starting spot? When he was first signed, I thought he had the inside track. After studying Augustin's season more closely, I'm not so sure. Augustin exploded in Chicago as a playmaker, facilitator and someone who could take their grinding offense and get into second gear. Without Augustin's ability to shoot, score and run the...
