Detroit Pistons top Wizards, 105-99, in Summer League play

LAS VEGAS — The Detroit Pistons improved to 2-0 in Las Vegas Summer League play following Saturday’s 105-99 victory against the Washington Wizards. But it wasn’t a great day for the franchise, thanks to injuries. 

Both Jaden Ivey and Saben Lee left the game with ankle injuries, and their statuses going forward are unknown. Isaiah Livers led the Pistons with 20 points while adding five rebounds, and Isaiah Stewart had 14 points and nine rebounds while knocking down two of five 3-point attempts. Through two games in Vegas, Stewart is 5-for-9 from behind the arc. Jalen Duren also had a solid night with 13 points, six rebounds and three assists, and Braxton Key added 14 points and seven rebounds.

Before their injuries, Ivey and Lee each had 11 points. Ivey scored his points in just five minutes.
