Pistons forward Saddiq Bey scored a career-high 51 points, leading the Pistons to a blow-out win vs. the Orlando Magic on Thursday night.

The win snapped a four-game losing streak for Detroit. The final score was 134-120.

Bey tied a Pistons record, hitting 10 three-pointers, tied with Joe Dumars for the franchise record.

It’s the first 50-point game for a Piston since Blake Griffin did it back in 2018.

Pistons rookie Cade Cunningham missed his second-straight game with a non-COVID related illness.

The Pistons are now 19-51 on the season. Their next game is Saturday in Cleveland.
