I would like to apologize for the lateness of this article as I had planned on writing it last night, but some important things came up. I don’t see myself doing this too often, but with it being the holiday season, I can’t promise that I won’t be forced to stick to a few Quick Hits from time to time.
As most of you probably know by now, the Orlando Magic defeated the Detroit Pistons 110-106 on Friday night at the Palace of Auburn Hills to end their five-game losing streak.
Orlando (3-5) got double-digit points from each of its starters, with J.J. Redick totaling 23 and Arron Afflalo notching 19. Three players recorded double-doubles, including Glen Davis (17 points and 13 rebounds), Nikola Vucevic (11 points and 13 rebounds), and the returning Jameer Nelson (13 points and 10 assists).
For the Pistons (1-9), Greg Monroe (23 points), Tayshaun Prince (18 points), Kyle Singler (14 points), Jason Maxiell (11 points), Brandon Knight (10 points), and Andre Drummond (10 points) all scored in double figures.
