Game Recap: Pistons end 2017 season with a loss to the Orlando Magic 113-109
Tonight the Detroit Pistons lost their last game of this abysmal season to the Orlando Magic 113-109.
Aaron Gordon, Magic dunk extradionare, dropped a game-high 32 points. Elfrid Payton (21p, 13a) and Nikola Vucevic (18p, 11r) both double-doubled while former Piston, Jodie Meeks, scored 12 points off the bench.
For the Pistons, Ish Smith and Kentavios Caldwell-Pope both scored 20 points while Boban Marjanovic posted a double-double with 14 points and 11 rebounds.
Henry Ellenson, Piston rookie, pitched in with 12 points and 6 rebounds in 19 minutes.
Overall, both teams are lottery bound, so this game ultimately meant nothing. The Detroit Pistons finished this season 37-45. Stan Van Gundy will now look to the NBA draft to begin the offseason. Hopefully, next year, the Pistons will be preparing for a lengthy post season.
