NBA 2K23 Summer League: Pistons defeat Wizards with balanced effort


Jalen Duren recorded 13 points, six rebounds and three assists for the Pistons.

The Detroit Pistons defeated the Washington Wizards, 105-99, on Day 3 of the Las Vegas Summer League at Thomas & Mack Center on Saturday.

The Pistons enjoyed a robust start on this game and managed to dominate the sport within the opening two quarters, constructing a 16-point lead after the primary quarter (39-23) and making it a 22-point advantage following a 20-14 rating within the second quarter. Nevertheless, the Wizards showed an improved effort within the second half and managed to aim a comeback with a 30-20 rating within the third quarter and a 32-26 rating within the fourth. Unfortunately, that was not enough, they usually fell short of their try and force an time beyond regulation period.

Jordan Schakel and Jordan Goodwin each led the best way for the Wizards on this win, as Schakel notched a game-high 24 points and Goodwin chipped in with 20 points and five rebounds. Devon Dotson and Isaiah Todd each posted 11-point outings.

Seven Detroit players scored in double digits on this game, with Isaiah Livers leading the best way with 20 points. Rookie Jaden Ivey and Saben Lee each ended with 11 points, and Isaiah Stewart got here near posting a double-double of 14 points and nine rebounds.
