The Portland Trail Blazers have fought through a very rough start to their season, but they bounced back on Sunday with a 110-92 win over the Detroit Pistons.
The Trail Blazers were led by a balanced scoring attack that saw seven players score in double figures. Damian Lillard had a season-high 39 points and had seven assists. Lillard hit 10-for-15 from the field, but some of his biggest shots came on 3-pointers, including the only two he made in the fourth quarter.
The Trail Blazers turned their season around on November 10th, winning for the first time since the opening night game at Philadelphia. Despite the win, the team is still very much searching for answers in the backcourt. Leading scorer CJ McCollum did not play in the fourth quarter due to personal reasons.
Detroit Pistons were led by Andre Drummond, who had a career-high 34 points and 21 rebounds, an assist, and a block in a solid all-around performance. The 7-foot-1 Drummond hit 12-for-16 from the field and had three blocks in the first quarter, but he also had three turnovers as the Pistons got off to a slow start.
The Pistons finished the season 5-0 at home, but struggled on the road, losing their first five games on the road before winning in Phoenix on Thursday.
