Pistons' Kentavious Caldwell-Pope: Generates 23 points, five assists in win
Caldwell-Pope compiled 23 points (7-15 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five assists, five rebounds and two steals across 28 minutes in Monday's 102-78 preseason win over the Bucks.
Caldwell-Pope had been stuck in a shooting slump all preseason, but broke out in a big way Monday, an encouraging sign as the regular season approaches. In addition to scoring more than 13 points for the first time in five games, Caldwell-Pope's rebound and assist total were also his best marks of the exhibition slate. The 23-year-old is often streaky, but over the balance of a full season, he's capable of delivering helpful marks in the points, three-pointers, and steal categories.
