Green scored 10 of those points in a decisive and clutch overtime period, and he was very efficient in his home Toyota Center gym by making 13-of-21 shots (61.9%) and 4-of-7 on 3-pointers (57.1%).

Detroit Pistons Cade Cunningham and Houston Rockets Jalen Green in NBA Summer League.

Tuesday night saw the most anticipated matchup of this year’s NBA Summer League so far. The Detroit Pistons faced off against the Houston Rockets — but more importantly, No. 1 overall pick Cade Cunningham faced off against No. 2 overall pick Jalen Green.
