Ex-Detroit Pistons Marcus Morris, Luke Kennard, Reggie Jackson lead Los Angeles Clippers to 106-102 win over former team
DETROIT (AP) — Marcus Morris scored 31 points and Luke Kennard had 16 against their former team, helping the Los Angeles Clippers rally from an 18-point deficit to beat the Detroit Pistons 106-102 on Sunday.
Reggie Jackson, another former Piston, finished with 15 points, nine assists and eight rebounds.
“I will always have mad love for the Pistons, the city and the fans,” Jackson said. “I was just a rugrat when I came here from OKC, but I learned how to be an NBA player in Detroit. It’s always special for me to come back here and I hope all the fans understand that.”
mi Grant scored 21 for Detroit, and Cade Cunningham had 19 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds.
“We’re still a very young team and we need to learn how to close out games,” Grant said. “We still have too many mental lapses, especially on defense. We’re doing too much and switching and doubling at the wrong times.”
