Harris scores 24, Pistons blow past Hornets 112-89

They dominated the Charlotte Hornets on both sides of the court to win comfortably 112-89. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope recorded 18 points, seven rebounds, and seven assists on the night.

"We're having fun", Drummond said. Look on the bright side, Dre: at least you're going to be helping some people out this holiday season!

Drummond said he didn't do it on objective.

"They're a hard team to match up with", said Stevens.

Interestingly, we didn't see any Boban Marjanovic until two minutes remaining in the game. "I feel like our guys were there".

While Russell is dealing with a knee injury expected to keep him out multiple weeks, Randle, who has been the team's best player thus far, will probably overcome a hip pointer to play at some point this week. "At the end of the day, it wasn't my call so I took the consequences and walked off the floor".

There are times when Boston Celtics swingman Jae Crowder talks after games and, if you shut your eyes, it's eerie just how similar he can sound to Kevin Garnett. Steve Clifford's side will surely enjoy a days rest as they look to get back in the win column against Dallas.

Wesley Matthews broke out of a shooting slump and led the team with 26 points, Harrison Barnes added 17 points while Seth Curry had 14 points off the bench, but in a tight contest, it was the Spurs' Patty Mills who scored 10 of his 23 points in the final 3:04 to steal the game from the struggling Mavs. Things got sloppy from there with the Hornets turning the ball over frequently on bad passes, and the game quickly turning into a blowout.

"That's been a key for us", Van Gundy said.

They even managed to hit a season high 12 three point shots.

The Grizzlies (11-8) scored the first five points of the second quarter, including a 3-pointer by Harrison.

Kemba Walker: This was his 15th game of 20 points or more and he reached that point midway through the third quarter. Charlotte fell to 5-5 at home.

Andre Drummond gave a laugh and a round of applause to the refs who ejected him for elbowing Roy Hibbert in the back of the head on Tuesday night.

"It's not bad. We've got so much room for improvement", he said.

Even with Horford getting his fewest amount of shots since last March 4 while with the Atlanta Hawks, the Celtics had plenty of offense to win.

The Pistons (8-10) have relied on a balanced approach this season, with six players averaging double figures.
