The Detroit Pistons are really struggling in the 2022-23 NBA Regular Season, being alone at the last position in the Eastern Conference with a 15-45 record.

During the first NBA Night after the All-Star break, the franchise from Michigan lost to the Orlando Magic 108-106, and Killian Hayes couldn’t really help.

The French playmaker had 12 points, 5 assists, and 3 rebounds, but struggled shooting: he had 4/10 from the field, including 1/4 from beyond the arc.

After the game, the Detroit Pistons head coach Dwane Casey talked about Killian Hayes’ moment. “He had a tough game over there, which I was afraid of. The pressure of being back in his home country”, the former Toronto Raptors head coach commented.

As reported by Omari Sankofa II, Dwane Casey also said that Killian Hayes has to find joy in playing again. The 21-year-old point guard is averaging 9.6 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 5.8 assists per game, but he’s shooting 37.2% from the field.
