The Detroit Pistons remain undefeated against the Charlotte Hornets after a victorious effort at home.
Why It Matters For the Detroit Pistons
The Detroit Pistons came out victorious against the Charlotte Hornets after a 113-106 win at Little Caesars Arena. This is the third victory Detroit has earned against a team with a pending trade processing.
The Hornets traded Terry Rozier to the Miami Heat for Kyle Lowrie on Tuesday. Lowrie did not suit up which left Charlotte shorthanded with their roster coming into the matchup. The Pistons took advantage earning a victory that came down the wire.
Tuesday night's game also featured the debut of Monte Morris as a Piston. Morris has been inactive until tonight due to a quad injury. The 28-year-old veteran guard scored 7 points for the Pistons in limited action of 11 minutes.
Competition got tight late in the game as Detroit went scoreless for 5 straight minutes. The Pistons rallied with a 12-2 run in the final period to solidify their fifth victory of the regular season.
