Lauri Markkanen did his part to make sure that Tuesday night’s rematch in Detroit would not be repeated. The Jazz forward tied a career high with 38 points and hit 9 of 13 3-point attempts to help Utah defeat the Pistons, 126-111, at Little Caesars Arena.

It was overshadowed by a career night from Pistons rookie Jaden Ivey, who scored 30 points on 10-for-14 and 8-for-11 shooting from the free throw line. Detroit struggled through another weak second half and was outscored, 65-51, after halftime.
