The Detroit Pistons came away on the losing end in a one sided loss to the Toronto Raptors (final score 109-91.)
While the Orlando Magic are also looking for redemption after losing the first home game of the season to there in state rival the Miami Heat.
But for now, both teams hope to put their losses in the past as they looks to come away victors in the next outing.
The injury bug as already struck the Detroit Pistons taking their star guard Reggie Jackson, and putting him on the shelf for the next six to eight weeks.
Now with Ish Smith and Beno Udrih as the lone point guards on the roster the Pistons must make due with what they have.
But what they have in those two guards isn’t much.
Ish Smith scored only 6 points on 3-10 shooting in 33 minutes of action. And Beno Udrih put up 5 points on a dreadful 1-5 shooting from the field.
Having that type of play at the point guard spot is really killing the team, especially with the excellent play of Marcus Morris and Tobias Harris.
Morris scored 17 points in the loss, while Tobias Harris put up a team best 22 points. Yet, they still continued trail for most of the game due to poor play at the 1 spot.
The Orlando Magic made some splashy moves in the offseason. Trading for Serge Ibaka, and signing Bismack Biyombo and Jeff Green.
But despite that, the team wasn’t able to come away on the winning end against a new look Miami Heat squad.
Bismack Biyombo didn’t get to play, due to the fact that he had to serve a one-game suspension for accumulating too many flagrant fouls during the NBA playoffs.
However, Serge Ibaka and Jeff Green did get to play but they didn’t make the most of their minutes.
Serge Ibaka shot 6-17 on his field goal attempts, and Jeff Green was 2-7 from the field.

4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Pistons -4
As the Magic continue to adapt to new head coach Frank Vogel’s system it’s going to take time for the team to gel, making it likely a low scoring game.
The Pistons are only going to get points from the wing position and centre Andre Drummond, so don’t look for this to be a high scoring affair.
