Will Guillory @WillGuillory

Pels gotta do a better job of keeping Bojan Bogdanovic away from his spots. He’s already got 14 points on 6-6 shootings. – 7:25 PM

James EdwardsIII @JL EdwardsIII

Tremendous one-on-one defense by Saddiq Bey on CJ there. – 7:24 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa

Pistons take the lead, 22-20, after Bey goes 2-2 at the line. They’re on a 13-2 run – 7:23 PM

Cade’s on the sideline tonight. First game he’s been in attendance for since his surgery – 7:21 PM

Mike Curtis @MikeACurtis2

Ivey finds Killian for a dunk in transition and the Pistons have cut a 9-point #Pelicans lead to just one. They trail 18-17 with 6:29 left in the first quarter. – 7:21 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa

Pelicans 18, Pistons 17 midway through the first. Detroit is currently on an 8-0 run following that fastbreak dunk by Killian.
Bogey has 10 points in five minutes, and has made all four of his shots. Red hot start – 7:20 PM

James EdwardsIII @JL EdwardsIII

Cade Cunningham is on the Pistons’ bench for the first time since his surgery. – 7:19 PM

Mike Curtis @MikeACurtis2
#Pistons guard Cade Cunningham is in attendance for tonight’s game against the #Pelicans. It’s his first public appearance since he had season-ending surgery. – 7:19 PM
James EdwardsIII @JL EdwardsIII

Pelicans once led by nine, now only lead by one.
Bogey with 10 points on 4-of-4 shooting. – 7:19 PM

James EdwardsIII @JL Edwards III

Pistons’ transition defense has not been good. A lot of dropped heads after missed shots and not seeing the Pels sprint behind them. – 7:18 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa

Valanciunas might feast tonight. Pistons just don’t have the size to match up against him – 7:17 PM

Dwane Casey says Isaiah Stewart went through shootaround this morning. The medical team did a strength test on his shoulder and decided to hold him out of tonight’s game. – 5:51 PM

Mike Curtis @MikeACurtis2

Dwane Casey on Jaden Ivey’s improved 3-point shooting over the past few games: β€œThat’s going to set up the rest of his game. Once he gets that down pat and consistent, he’ll be hard to deal with.” – 5:46 PM
