NBA Note - Detroit Pistons Kennard, Luke

Nov 16, 2017 - 5:17 PM G Luke Kennard scored a career-high 14 points for Detroit. The team's first-round selection in this past June's NBA Draft (12th overall), Kennard scored nine of his 14 points in the fourth quarter.

Most importantly to Van Gundy was the defense and five rebounds Kennard provided as well.

"He was in the battle fighting his butt off," Van Gundy said. "I was happy with everyone, but I was really, really happy with him."

Kennard after the game was in a spot he probably hasn't grown accustomed to this season, which was mobbed by reporters wanting to get his thoughts.

"I want to be a player that is able to make those plays," Kennard said. "If my shot is not falling, I want to be able to make an impact in other ways."

No one has shouted yet.
