Tobias Harris had 27 points, including 19 in the first half. He was blazing hot from all over the floor and helped Detroit weather some first-half foul trouble of Andre Drummond and Avery Bradley. He also capped the game off with a dagger 3-pointer from the top of the key to put the Hornets away for good.
Johnson, meanwhile, was everywhere on defense and played perhaps the best 0-for-13 game you’ll ever see. He had four of Detroit’s 14 steals. He was also a big factor in Detroit turning 17 Charlotte turnovers into 26 Pistons points.
The Hornets were lead by 24 points from Kemba Walker.
