What They're Saying
“You have an opportunity to go through something together,” Casey said. “You give into the fact that there’s nothing you can do about the weather. You can’t control that just like sometimes you can’t control whether you make or miss a shot. From that standpoint, guys did a good job of fighting through it, getting through it and I thought our organization did a good job of really trying as much as we could to keep everyone busy, happy. We had some sponsors on the trip that missed a whole week of office time, trying to make it up to them and make it as comfortable as possible.”
The Bottom Line
Jaden Ivey led the Pistons with one of his best games of the year and secured the win for the team. Despite their season-high 23 turnovers, the Pistons were able to bounce back and secure the victory over the Charlotte Hornets.
