Detroit opened their season on high note as they downed Charlotte Hornets 102-90 on Wednesday night. Tobias Harris scored 27 points grabbing 10 rebounds, which was a continuous performance from the start.
In their first game with the franchise, reserve Langston Galloway made 16 points, Avery Bradley posted 15, and Henry Ellenson added 13 points.
One key element for Pistons’ win in the opener was their ability to convert turnovers as they made 26 points off Charlotte’s 17 turnovers. The Pitons would be looking do this once again if the Wizards don’t play a tight game on Friday.
Reggie Bullock won’t be playing on Friday due to Suspension.
John Wall led the Wizards’ offense scoring 28 points (10-of-28 shooting) and eight assists to hand the Wizards a 120-115 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night. Wall held the team together in the final moments of the match along with Bradley Beal, who finished the game with 25 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists.
Jason Smith is put on day-to-day due to a shoulder issue suffered against the 76ers while Markieff Morris and Sheldon Mac are both out with injuries.
Kelly Oubre Jr., who replaced Smith in Wednesday’s win scored 14 points and is expected to start on Friday against the Pistons.
Marcin Gortat is playing his best basketball as he notched 10 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter and grabbed a mindblowing 17 rebounds against the Sixers. Gortat will be the man to watch out for in Friday’s clash.
