Back to some stats from the night’s matches
Killian Hayes and Cade Cunningham make history
Another defeat for the Detroit Pistons this time against the Rockets. But in this match, Cade Cunnginham (11 assists) and Killian Hayes (10 assists) made history. They become the first teammates in the history of 20 years or less to deliver at least 10 assists in the same game.
Historic series for Detroit
The Pistons lost at home 116-107 to Houston, their 14th loss in a row. In their history they have lost 21 games in a row, but it was straddling two seasons: 1979/80 and 1980/81. In a single season, their longest losing streak is 14. They did so in 1979-80 and 1993-94.
First in history for Josh Giddey
In the Thunder’s victory at the buzzer over a Shai Gilgeous-Alexander shoot, Josh Giddey made history by signing 8 points, 18 rebounds and 10 assists. Never has a player under 20 compiled at least 15 rebounds and 10 assists.
Bradley Beal is heating up
Excellent game for Bradley Beal in the Wizards’ victory in Utah. He scored 37 points in addition to 5 rebounds and 7 assists. It is the 60th time in his career that he has scored at least 35 points. In the history of the Wizards only one player has done better: Walt Bellamy with 70.
The Nets do with what they have
Decimated, the Brooklyn Nets had to field no less than 3 rookies in their 5 major: David Duke Jr., Cam Thomas and Kessler Edwards. For these two it was even their first start in their career and the last time a team had fielded 3 rookies in their 5 major was in April 2009.
Fred VanVleet takes care of everything
The Raptors won against the Warriors with 27 points, 7 rebounds, 12 assists and 3 steals from Fred VanVleet. It is the 5th time in his career that he has signed at least 25 points and 10 assists. Only 2 Raptors players have more: Damon Stoudamire (24) and Kyle Lowry (21).
