Harris scores 24, Pistons blow past Hornets 112-89
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Tobias Harris scored 24 points, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Marcus Morris each had 18 points and the Detroit Pistons beat the Charlotte Hornets 112-89 on Tuesday night for their third straight win.
Ish Smith added 13 points while Detroit shot 49 percent from the field.
Kemba Walker had 23 points for the Hornets, who were playing their fourth game in five nights.
The Pistons hadn’t played since Saturday and looked much fresher throughout the game in snapping Charlotte’s two-game winning streak.
Detroit took a 10-point lead into the fourth quarter after Caldwell-Pope knocked down a pair of 3-pointers late in the third. Things got sloppy from there with the Hornets turning the ball over frequently on bad passes, and the game quickly turning into a blowout.
