Pistons 81, Trail Blaizers 78

Boxscore here:

Highlights galore of Jaden Ivey - 20 points on mix of jams and outside shooting. Loved energy on defense. Saben went to the line 13 times! Beef Stew was 3 for 4 from downtown playing the 4, and plus 7.

Lots to like although it was a close contest.

Hayes, Saben, Stewart probably are overqualified to be playing, imo, but probably good to develop chemistry with rookies and get a feel for position changes that seem brewing.
