AUBURN HILS, Mich. -- For years, Glen Davis has been a thorn in the side of the Detroit Pistons.
Tuesday, Jason Maxiell played Big Baby right off the floor.
Davis missed 11 of his 15 first-half shots, picked up a technical early in the third quarter and was benched for most of the second half as the Pistons beat the Orlando Magic 105-90.
"Baby has been a difference-maker for them in a lot of games, and he's had several big games against us," said Pistons coach Lawrence Frank. "But we did a great job against him. Greg and Andre had him some of the time, but he was Max's for most of the night and Max did an outstanding job. He was just great tonight."
Maxiell almost had a double-double in the first quarter, finishing with nine points and eight rebounds, while Davis was 1-for-7 in the first 12 minutes.
"I knew I had a big matchup tonight, so my focus was all on defense," Maxiell said. "I wanted to go out there at the start of the game and really set a tone."
