Hornets beat Pistons to finish Mardi Gras road trip
Detroit, Mi. - The Hornets completed their three game Mardi Gras road trip Monday night with a win over the Pistons, 105-86.
Eric Gordon sat out the game as a precautionary measure to avoid playing back-to-back games. Ryan Anderson led the team in scoring with 31 points, the second highest mark he's put up this season. Roger Mason, Jr. was also effective off the bench, putting up 14 points in just 22 minutes of play.
The Hornets had a decisive advantage in field accuracy, draining just shy of 50% of their field goal attempts and 47.6% of their 3-point attempt. The Pistons shot just 35.8% and 26.3% in those categories, respectively.
The team has Tuesday off and will host the Trail Blazers Wednesday before Anderson and Anthony Davis head off to All-Star Weekend in Houston.
