The Wolves fell to the Detroit Pistons Friday night by the score of 116-108. Detroit’s Marcus Morris, Jon Leuer, and Andre Drummond were the major forces that simply overpowered the Wolves. Morris and Leuer combined for an audacious 60 points on a miraculous nine of 16 from three (both players entered the night shooting 32.4% […]
