VIDEO: Pistons' Brandon Knight blows wide-open layup

By Royce Young | NBA writer

Before it gets better for Pistons guard Brandon Knight, it's going to get a little worse.

First, Kyrie Irving snapped his ankles in the Rising Stars game. Then DeAndre Jordan killed him on an alley-oop. Then he rolled his ankle a game after that.

And now, he's added a self-inflicted wound by blowing a wide-open layup against the Celtics on Wednesday.

Not just any layup either. It came with around two minutes remaining and the Pistons down three. Oof. (The Pistons went on to lose, 98-93.)

Thing is, Knight has had a bit of a breakout year in his second season, averaging 13.2 points and 4.0 assists for the Pistons while showing flashes of being a really nice point guard. He's just had some rough spots this season.
