Luka Garza found himself in the starting lineup for the Detroit Pistons Summer League team Friday night and had himself his best game in Summer League so far.

The two-time national player of year finished with a 10 point and 12 rebound double-double in 25 minutes. He also added five blocks and three assists. His full offensive arsenal was on display as he hit a three and finished with five offensive rebounds.

The Pistons got their first win of the Summer League, beating the Knicks 93-87. Tyler Cook did not play in the game.

The Pistons play again Saturday against the Lakers.
