Marcus Morris scored 24 points on 9-of-13 shooting (1-of-1 from deep, 5-of-5 from the line) with seven rebounds, two assists and one block in the Pistons’ 88-82 win over the Thunder on Tuesday.
Morris has successfully held of Stanley Johnson and maintained more than the late-round value that we’ve pegged him at, as he has actually been an early round play over the last week. That’s not going to continue but we’re starting to see that Stan Van Gundy will use his veteran over his rookie now that every game matters. Tobias Harris scored 17 points on 6-of-14 shooting (1-of-1 3PTs, 4-of-4 FTs) with seven rebounds, three assists and one steal in the win. The Pistons move to 0.5 games ahead of the Pacers as they sit in the No. 7 seat, and the Bulls are 2.5 games behind them in the ninth slot.
