The Detroit Pistons came into tonight's rematch with the Indiana Pacers fresh off a 32 point embarrassment the night before in Indianapolis. The rematch wasn't much better.
The Pistons were missing starting shooting guard Brandon Knight again due to a right knee hyper extension, and Detroit struggled to score without him. Against a stout Indiana defense, the Pistons missed on their first seven shots before Rodney Stuckey knocked one down for the Pistons. When he made the jumper though, the Pacers were up 10-0.
Again Roy Hibbert started it off. He was fouled by Greg Monroe and he hit both free throws. George Hill had a turnaround and a floater, them Hibbert and Paul George had back-to-back layups. Monroe started 0/7 for Detroit before finally getting a layup to go. The Pistons shot a paltry 14% in the first quarter and scored a grand total of nine points. They trailed 16-9 after one.
Will Bynum then hopped off the bench and "Bynumite" was terrific. He score...
