Cunningham vs. Green matchup lives up to hype; Rockets drop Pistons
Las Vegas — No. 1 and No. 2. Cade Cunningham and Jalen Green.
It was the marquee matchup on the Summer League schedule, and those games sometimes have a way of not living up to the billing.
Tuesday’s matchup was worthy of the top billing, with the top two picks in the draft in the much-anticipated prime-time slot. The Pistons had a hot start, but the Rockets recovered in the second quarter and coasted to a 111-91 victory at Thomas & Mack Center.
