Jaden Ivey posts strong numbers in regular season NBA debut
Jaden Ivey made Piston fans very excited Wednesday night.
The former Purdue guard had one of the best rookie debuts across the league for the Pistons against the Magic in a 113-109 win.
Ivey scored the second most point of all rookies drafted in the first round, draining 8 of his 15 field goals on the night for 19 points. He also dished out 4 assists, nabbed 3 rebounds and pickpocketed 3 steals. Not bad fresh out of college.
The debut for @IveyJaden.

The Pistons young core is shaping up to be scary good. Ivey former Memphis forward Jalen Duren and former No. 1 overall pick Cade Cunningham could fuel that team for a long time.
Ivey is by far the most athletic of the bunch, and that’s saying something. It’ll be quite the ride following the former Boilermaker in the NBA.
