So far, he’s fitting in perfectly with the Blazers collecting 22 points in his debut and 13 versus Toronto while connecting on 10 of his 20 perimeter attempts through two games.
In the win versus Toronto, the Blazers showcased how lethal the three guard starting lineup is going to be moving forward as Damian Lillard led with a double-double of 22 points and 11 assists while CJ McCollum scored 23 adding seven rebounds, five assists, two steals, and three blocks.
Yet the bigger news may be the defense that held the Raptors to 10 points in the third quarter and was a factor down the stretch of the game. Having Jusuf Nurkic back is definitely helping this effort.
Four other Blazers reached double-digits including Derrick Jones Jr., (16), Robert Covington (13), Nurkic (10), and Enes Kanter (10)
Nassir Little (thumb) and Zach Collins (ankle surgery) are out.
The Pistons wish they could play all 72 games against the Toronto Raptors as they ended up sweeping the season series to collect three of their 13 wins this season.
Granted, the Raptors weren’t ever healthy in any of those meetings and were missing core contributors or on a back-to-back game in each of the games.
But the team can only play who is on the court and Dwane Casey gets his small measure of payback for being fired the season before the Raptors went on to win the championship.
In the victory, the Pistons jumped out to an early lead and were never in danger of losing the match. That their rookies were the players who provided the majority of the success provides a measure of optimism for the club.
Specifically, Saben Lee scored 19 points adding three rebounds, five assists, a steal, and a block. Saddiq Bey also scored 19 points, another Detroit rookie, also scored 19 points with three rebounds, and four assists.
Hamidou Diallo joined in with his offering of 19 points (plus 10 rebounds) as one of four Pistons reserves to reach double-digits. Cory Joseph (17), Isaiah Stewart (14), and Frank Jackson (12) were the other bench producers.
Overall the Pistons reserves clobbered the decimated Raptors 65 to 24.
Rodney McGruder (elbow) and Dennis Smith Jr. (spine) were both out Saturday and Monday remaining day-to-day. Killian Hayes (hip) and Jahlil Okafor (knee) are both out.
