Rodney Stuckey scored half of his 24 points in the fourth quarter, including the winning 20-foot jumper with 0.2 seconds left, and the offensively-challenged Detroit Pistons ended a five-game losing streak by erasing a 13-point deficit to beat the Washington Wizards 79-77 Monday night.
Detroit managed to win despite being held below 80 points for the third game in a row; that last happened to the Pistons in December 2003.
Greg Monroe, who played home games on the Wizards' court while at Georgetown, had 10 points and 10 rebounds, including a putback off a miss by Tayshaun Prince with 23 seconds remaining to put Detroit ahead 76-75. After Detroit's Ben Wallace made one free throw, Washington's Nene tied it at 77 on a hook shot with 5.8 seconds to go.

Rodney Stuckey scored twenty four points against the Washington Wizards, twelve of which came in the fourth quarter, but it was his last two that sealed the deal. With 5.8 seconds left in the fourth, Stuckey drove the length of the court and then hit a fade away over Jordan Crawford giving his Detroit Pistons the 79-77 win.
Any game winning shot in the NBA is a big shot, but this...
The Detroit Pistons defeated the Washington Wizards 79-77 on Rodney Stuckey’s game winning shot with .2 left. But teammate Brandon Knight received the Gatorade bath as an award for his hustle earlier in the game.
The Pistons have had a frustrating season, but there are glimmers of hope with this young team, especially the arrival of Knight. Hustle plays like that will endear...
Usually, the Gatorade bath is normally reserved for NFL head coaches and Doc Rivers but during tonight's Pistons/Wizards affair, rookie Brandon Knight got his own version.Knight was attempting to track down a loose ball and dove into the Pistons bench area. Knight took out some Gatorade cups in the process and ended up getting all wet:
Detroit Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey left Wednesday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers with a sore left hamstring.
Stuckey was hurt in the first period and ruled out for the rest of the game. It was his second game back since sitting out three games with a toe injury.
The team's leading scorer, Stuckey entered Wednesday's game averaging 16.5 points and 4.1 assists per game.
Rodney Stuckey hit a game-winning jumper with 0.2 seconds left, but it was Brandon Knight who got the Gatorade bath in the Pistons' ugly-as-all-hell 79-77 win over the Washington Wizards.
The entire Pistons team could have used a cleaning, as they shot under 37% for the entire game. Knight was a particularly abysmal 3-for-13, but his 6 assists and 7 rebounds were...
This is one of those clips that make you happy to be a Pistons fan, because your rookie point guard just hustled like crazy for a loose ball, but it also makes you smile if you’re….. well…. anyone. As Knight flys over the bench to track down the rock, he lands directly on the Gatorade station and flips an entire trey of refreshing drink all over himself.
I like Gatorade as...
Probably the least deserved shower in sports since he failed to even save the ball from going out of bounds. Even if he had saved the ball, he is still on the Detroit Pistons, no one ever deserves a celebration on that team. Three quick reaction notices from the gif: 1) The two twins in the top left corner have great timing. 2) Their mother puts her driving with children instincts...
Detroit Pistons rookie Brandon Knight has pulled off the impossible. He dunked himself in Gatorade. Free commercial follows.

There were like 1500 people watching the Pistons-Wizards game last night, hence the lack of buzz from Brandon Knight jumping over the Detroit bench and into the Gatorade buckets. The Pistons won a meaningless game, the Wizards draft pick positioning (2nd worst NBA record) gets better and BC lands this video of Knight getting rained on. Everyone is a winner this morning.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Rodney Stuckey scored half of his 24 points in the fourth quarter, including the winning 20-foot jumper with 0.2 seconds left, and the offensively-challenged Detroit Pistons ended a five-game losing streak by erasing a 13-point deficit to beat the Washington Wizards 79-77 Monday night.

The Detroit Pistons have admitted that the latest twists in this topsy-turvy NBA schedule have affected them, but they won't be the more fatigued team in their next game.
The Pistons have enjoyed a welcome day off as they travel to face the Washington Wizards, who return home to complete a stretch of three games in as many nights Monday.
Detroit (16-32) is back on the road...
The Cleveland Cavaliers and Detroit Pistons are both rebuilding, and it's clear that their rookie point guards continue to provide excellent building blocks.
Both seem to be slumping now.
Kyrie Irving and Brandon Knight are the league's top rookie scorers and meet for the third time Wednesday night when the Cavaliers host the Pistons.
Irving was chosen No. 1 by Cleveland...
