He contributed 10 points, 15 rebounds, one assist, one steal, and two blocks in 31 minutes. Dwight was 5-of-9 from the field and 0-of-2 from the free throw line.

Dwight Howard has seen a decline in his numbers ever since he left the Orlando Magic a couple of years ago. Now, he has the chance to rebuild his career and get back to the dominant force he once was. Dwight had a great start to his season and Charlotte fans can only hope that he can play well throughout the season.

Kemba Walker impresses with 24 points

Despite the loss, Kemba Walker looked amazing against the Detroit Pistons. He contributed 24 points, six rebounds, and four assists in 35 minutes. He shot 46.2 percent from the field, 33.3 percent from the three-point line and 84.6 percent from the free throw line. In order for the Charlotte Hornets to return to the playoffs this season, Marvin Williams, Jeremy Lamb and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will have to step up big time and help Walker and Dwight.

Stanley Johnson struggles badly

Stanley Johnson had a horrendous shooting night against the Charlotte Hornets. He only contributed two points, four rebounds, one assist, and four steals in 40 minutes. He went 0-of-13 from the field, 0-of-6 from beyond the arc, and 2-of-2 from the free throw. They still managed to get the victory despite how bad he shot the ball, but Johnson has to be better in order for them to beat stronger NBA teams in the east this season.

Reggie Jackson coming back to form

Reggie Jackson played a solid game last night against the Charlotte Hornets. He contributed 13 points, five rebounds, eight assists, and one steal in 27 minutes. Jackson was 5-of-10 from the field and 0-of-1 from beyond the arc, and 3-of-3 from the free throw line. Reggie Jackson is looking like his old self-tonight. If he can maintain this performance the whole season, the Detroit Pistons are going to be a tough team in the east.
