Brandon Knight scored 16 of his 26 points in the first half, outplaying Damian Lillard in a matchup of young guards and leading the Detroit Pistons to a 108-101 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday night.
Lillard entered the day as the NBA's top rookie scorer, averaging 19.6 points per game. He missed his first 12 shots from the field against the Pistons.
Detroit is 4-3 since dropping its first eight games. The Pistons won for the first time when allowing more than 90 points.
LaMarcus Aldridge was back in the lineup for Portland after missing a game with back spasms. He scored 32 points but didn't have enough help with Lillard struggling.

Forward Kyle Singler has been one of few bright spots in a relatively disappointing season thus far for the Pistons this season.
The second year pro from Duke is also pretty accomplished at executing some pretty remarkable trick shots.
Here’s Singler sinking many different tricks shots around Detroit including one off a moving car.

The Detroit Pistons dug themselves an early hole this season as they struggled on the road.
Detroit still has a ways to go to reach the break-even point, but it's heading in the right direction by taking care of business at Auburn Hills.

Matchup: Portland (6-8) @ Washington Wizards (0-12)

After getting their first two wins of the season last week, this was a so-so week for the Pistons, now 3-11.
After a couple of days of practice, the Pistons traveled to Orlando and promptly laid an egg.
The first half was actually pretty good as they held a 48-45 lead over the Magic.
But it was a completely different story in the second half, particularly the third quarter. The...
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. Kyle Singler is one of the more intriguing young players the Pistons have.
At 6-8, 230 pounds, Singler is a pretty big shooting guard. But really, that's just where he is listed in the starting lineup. With that size, he can play more than one position.
That versatility was on full display Monday night at the Palace against the Portland Trail Blazers.
