Pistons' Josh Smith Hits Game-Winner vs Timberwolves (Video)


 

It wasn’t pretty, it wasn’t the best but it was good enough. Basically, Josh Smith’s game-winning three-point shot against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday night was a reflection of his whole career. Not the best, but good enough. Especially for the Detroit Pistons who threw him all kinds of money this past offseason.

In any case, he is probably the Pistons’ new go-to man and he made them look like geniuses in the waning moments against the Wolves.

Detroit topped Minnesota 99-98 after Smith’s shot. For the record, Smith is a career 28 percent shooter from three.

Smith finished with a game-high 20 points (on 6-for-17 shooting), six rebounds and two assists. Greg Monroe added 17 points and five rebounds for the Pistons.

Minnesota was led by Kevin Love’s 19 points and 10 rebounds in a losing effort.
