Detroit Pistons head coach Maurice Cheeks believes that the Minnesota Timberwolves were "pretty good" at scoring against them.

Maurice Cheeks has admitted that the Minnesota Timberwolves were "pretty good" at scoring during their 121-94 win over the Detroit Pistons last night.

The Pistons were beaten for the second game in a row in last night's thrashing, leaving them sixth in the Eastern Conference.

The Detroit head coach told reporters: "Even when we were hanging around, they were scoring pretty good. We couldn't get any defensive stops and that's a good offensive team.

"All Rick Adelman teams usually are pretty good offensively. They were scoring. We were scoring. Then we had those turnovers and they continued to score and we couldn't put ourselves in such a hole.

"I think they average 104-105 anyway. When they were scoring, we were scoring. For us to continue scoring like that, it was going to be a huge task for us. If we could get some stops early which we didn't and they stayed in their rhythm of scoring, it was going to be tough. Kevin Love, the way he played was pretty good."

The Pistons face the New Orleans Pelicans later today.
