The scouting report against the Timberwolves is pretty simple -- pack the paint, because they can't shoot three-pointers.

Don't tell that to the Detroit Pistons.

The Timberwolves, who came into the game shooting an NBA-worst 29 percent from behind the arc, hit 14 three-pointers Tuesday night, March 26, in a 105-82 rout of the hapless Pistons.

"We were due for a night like this," said J.J. Barea, who went 5 for 7 on three-pointers and scored 21 points. "Our starters started getting hot, and we kept the flow going."

Detroit snapped a 10-game losing streak Saturday night in Charlotte but didn't build off that against Minnesota.

"Of those 14 three-pointers, how many were contested? Not many," Pistons coach Lawrence Frank said. "We just had so many defensive breakdowns tonight. We let them hit some shots and gain some confidence, and then we just left them wide-open all night."

The game matched one of the league's worst home teams against one of the worst on the road. The Pistons haven't won at home since before the all-star break, losing seven straight, while Minnesota had only one road victory in March.
