Pistons rookie makes ironic comment about defending Sabonis Original publication: NBC Sports Bayarea

Detroit Pistons For the rookie Jalen Duren It was a hard task to guard the star of Kings. Domantas Sabonis during Sacramento’s 122-113 victory Friday night at Little Caesars Arena.

Sabonis scored a double-double in the contest’s seventh consecutive game, thanks to his 5-for-7 shooting at the free-throw lines.

Given Duren’s four fouls that night while Sabonis was being defended, many found his postgame comments…interesting.

“How hard is it to defend Domantas Sabonis and not fouling him?” Duren was questioned by a reporter after the match.

Duren replied, “It’s easy,”

Duren played well against Sabonis in the first half. Duren gave one of his best performances and ended the game with a double-double. But Sabonis and Co. couldn’t be stopped In the second half.

Duren, who recently assumed the Pistons’ starting centre role, acknowledged that he now must compete with some of the NBA’s top bigs — such as Sabonis.

“[The biggest challenge is] Duren explained that it was difficult to understand the differences in the quality of players when you are up against elite men — elite big guys.” “Someone of the best the league has.

“So for me I just try not to leave the house locked down and just look at a lot of film. Also, I’m focused on the scouting reports and trying to do my job to stop them.”

Duren, who is only 19 years old, has plenty of games against elite bigs like Sabonis.

And who knows, maybe these future assignments won’t be? That hard, either.
