Sekou Doumbouya has been a breath of fresh air for the Detroit Pistons. The 15th pick of the past NBA draft, Doubouya has shined in a fairly lackluster season for the Pistons.

Doumbouya has responded well and during the Pistons Wednesday night game against the Boston Celtics, the rookie showed his true potential. In a dominant game for the whole Pistons team, Doumbouya showed out with 24 points on an efficient 10-13 shooting clip. It seems pedestrian even by rookie standards but it was good enough to put the teenager up ahead the franchise record books.

With per-game averages of 6.9 points and 3.1 rebounds per game — Sekou Doumbouya may not jump off the page. But, with the chances of making the playoffs increasingly slim, the Pistons have turned to their 19-year-old rookie to see what he can do.

With the strong performance, Doumbouya became the youngest player in Pistons franchise history to score 20 points. At 19 years and 23 days old, the rookie beat out current Pistons star Andre Drummond who accomplished the feat at 19 years and 91 days old.

Doumbouya only began getting consistent minutes eight games ago. Since becoming a starter, the young rookie has scored in seven games.

As a team, Detroit has struggled for most of the year. Led by big man Andre Drummond, the Pistons have a record of 15-27 which puts them tied for ninth place in the Eastern Conference. The loss of star power forward Blake Griffin has really hindered a Detroit squad that made the playoffs last season.

Still, with the flashes that Doumbouya has shown, Pistons fans should feel fairly confident in the future of the franchise.
