Omari Sanfoka II: Cunningham on who he pointed at: “I had my people right behind the bench. I went baseline to dunk the ball, and he’s right in-between me and my people. I probably should’ve read that situation better. I don’t get into taunting too much, I’m usually chilling after a play.”

Cunningham on Olynyk being close to returning: “He’s already made a big impact just having him back around practice. He knows so much about the game and he can obviously play. Whenever he’s able to get out there with us, we’re going to be a lot better, I feel like.” – 4:26 PM

#Pistons Cade Cunningham on Kelly Olynyk’s impending return: “He’s already having a big impact, just having him around more in practice…whenever he’s able to get out there with us and get up and down, we’re going to be a lot better.” – 4:26 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Cunningham on his live-dribble: “I was jump passing too much. If you don’t find a receiver in that time span you got, it’s a turnover.” Added that is one thing he’s really improved on since start of year, keeping his option alive on the baseline. – 4:26 PM

Cunningham on keeping his dribble alive: “I was jump-passing too much. If you don’t find your receiver in that little window, it’s a turnover. Coaches have been on me about, and we’ve repped that out. I feel like I’m getting more comfortable on that baseline.” – 4:25 PM

Throwing out (a second T) Cade Cunningham for pointing to his bench is awful. – 2:47 PM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
And then Cunningham with the monster dunk, points at Book and gets a WEAK tech. And that’s his second, so he’s done for the day. That’s incredibly lame – 2:47 PM
