John Kuester was running out of ideas to fix a Detroit Pistons season that was quickly falling apart.
On Friday night, found one that worked.
Kuester benched rebellious guard Rodney Stuckey, started Tracy McGrady at the point and watched the Pistons win their first of the season, 97-90 over the Charlotte Bobcats on Friday night.
“I’m happy for the organization, but mostly I’m happy for the players,” Kuester said. “Obviously, this has been a tough way to start the season, but these guys have kept playing hard.”
