Avery Bradley returns to Boston and Marcus Morris faces old squad

The matchup between the Pistons and Celtics saw a couple of old faces in new places, namely former Celtic Avery Bradley with the Pistons, and former Piston Marcus Morris with the Celtics.

The two were involved in the same trade earlier in the season that sent them packing in opposite directions. Bradley and Morris each had 13 points in their first game against their former team.
