AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Rodney Stuckey was drenched in sweat, tugging at his shorts, the international sign of a tired basketball player.
He had just finished a 2 12-hour practice with his Pistons teammates, yet he and rookie Brandon Knight kept doing extra shooting drills with assistant coach Dee Brown.
Over and over again, the two would dart around orange cones, stop and then...
Usually NBA season previews are best read in October, back when football games hardly mattered, Midnight Madness was a few weeks away, and baseball was winding down. Perhaps with the last of the offseason's iced tea in hand, as you whiled away on a too-warm-for-the-season afternoon.
Well, pour yourself a glass of bull shot and tighten those mittens, because it's mid-December...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Austin Daye's two free throws with 3.1 seconds left gave the Detroit Pistons a 90-89 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night.
Daye, who finished with 19 points, was fouled driving to the basket after the Pistons stole an inbounds pass with Cleveland holding an 89-88 lead.
Luke Harangody missed a jumper for Cleveland at the buzzer.

Irving and Knight are just beginning a rivalry in which both are trying to revive franchises in the Central Division.
Auburn Hills is a 35-minute drive north of Detroit. Make that almost an hour if you dare try it in the shadow of 5:00 traffic. It’s a rather uninspiring trek up I-75, with warehouses and impersonal office buildings surrounding you on the east and west.The starkness of the Detroit city limits gives way to those of the industrialized Troy as you head north, with a lovely view of...
The Pistons are still looking for their first victory of the Tom Gores -- and Lawrence Frank -- eras, against the Cleveland Cavaliers, the same team that beat them, 91-87, on Friday night. Tonight's game is at Cleveland and is the finale of their two-game exhibition season. (They start playing for real on Monday at Indiana.) 7 p.m., Fox Sports Detroit.
Jonas Jerebko smiled about the six fouls he picked up in just 17 minutes in his preseason debut. But he senses that his feel for the game is starting to rapidly return now after more than a year spent coming back from injury, Keith Langlois writes for True Blue Pistons.
A Brandon Knight steal with six seconds left gave Austin Daye the chance to win the game with two free throws, and he knocked them down as the Pistons closed the preseason with a 90-89 win - fitting in a game that saw Lawrence Frank start the "Knight and Daye" backcourt, Keith Langlois writes for True Blue Pistons.
The Pistons topped the Cavaliers in a come-from-behind 90-89 road win Tuesday. A late Brandon Knight steal followed by two free throws from Austin Daye sealed the game for the road squad.

The preseason stat line Brandon Knight will carry into the regular season isn't very impressive. But if you don't think the rookie from Kentucky has shown great promise in two exhibition games against the Cavs, you haven't been paying attention.
