The Philadelphia 76ers (23-10) visited the Little Caesar’s Arena in Detroit, Michigan and came away with not only Pizza Pizza but also their 23rd victory of the season.
An overmatched Pistons team put in a valiant effort but was outmatched in every aspect of the game.
Despite a 27 point night from Andre Drummond, Detroit was no match for the lights outs performances from Furkan Rorkmaz (21 points) and a monster game from the surging Tobias Harris who potted a huge 36 points.
Yet again, Ben Simmons nailed a double-double with 16 points and 13 rebounds.
Free Throws: Philadelphia dropped 54.7% from the floor with a 52 of 95 night while Detroit was 43 o 84 for a 51.%.
Philly out rebounded the Pistons, 48-30.
