The Detroit Pistons’ roster was revised with a new player, Allen Iverson, a few days ago and they greeted him with a warm welcome. Despite with a new number, Iverson’s first game with Detroit counted as a loss. The New Jersey Nets took the game by 7 (103-96). Iverson first accumulated stats on the Pistons were 24 points and 6 assists. Iverson stated:
“It was a good feeling for me,” Iverson said. “I haven’t been able to play for a while so it was good to get back on the basketball court. I’ll try to get a little bit of my rust off.”
It turned out to be a career-high game of 38 points for opposing for Nets’ guard Devin Harris.
“It was just about playing hard,” Harris said. “We didn’t get off to the best start. We have been really struggling in the third quarter but tonight we came out with more aggressiveness. Points for me didn’t matter. It was all about the win. We desperately needed this for our confidence’s sake.”
Richard Hamilton scored 22 points TyShaun Prince finished with 19 points and 11 rebounds. Winning team players, Vince Carter and Josh Boone both totaled a number of 18 points. Check out the SCHEDULE for tomorrow’s games.
