Detroit Piston’s victory over Orlando Magic was overshadowed by a brilliant performance from Saddiq Bey: the 22-year-old forward scored 50 points and joined giants like Lebron, Irving, and Durant in the 50-point club of the NBA’s best March.

The meeting between the two worst teams in the Eastern Conference left more than the victory of Detroit Pistons against Orlando Magic by 134-120.
Saddiq Bey signed the best performance of his career with 51 points, 9 rebounds, and 4 assists, and joined the 5 players who had already achieved that figure in this month.
March was a huge time of the year for this 75th anniversary NBA: LeBron James and Kyrie Irving managed to reach or pass 50 points twice. while Jayson Tatum, Karl-Anthony Towns, Kevin Durant, and Saddiq Bey himself did it once.

Despite the low importance of the game. The two teams that were not even close to the fight for a place in the Play. In gave life to an entertaining duel marked by the fantastic performance of Bey, who at 22 years of age joined his name to that of the great stars in the most prolific month of March in NBA history.
His three-point baskets were essential for Detroit Pistons to survive Orlando Magic’s dominance in the paint, where they scored 64 points to the Pistons’ 48.
