The 1-8 #Pistons with host 2-5 the Orlando Magic Friday night at the Palace of Auburn Hills. The big news is not that fact that the Pistons picked up their first win Wednesday night with Kyle Singler in the starting linuep.
The big news is that Rodney Stuckey will be coming off the bench for Detroit.
“Stuckey went to head coach Lawrence Frank and requested the switch after watching how well the starting unit flowed while he missed a game with the flu, and said today he has “no ego” and believes it could be the best move for everyone.
“I just want to come in and just impact the game,” Stuckey said after today’s shootaround. “I think coming in with the second unit, being able to run more, get out in transition, will help us out a lot.” via MLive
