An experienced lineup of veterans didn’t panic after opening the season with five straight losses. Nearly two weeks after that awful start, the Detroit Pistons are on the mend.
Rodney Stuckey scored 17 points and Ben Gordon hit a late 3 that sent the Pistons over Sacramento 100-94 Sunday, the Kings’ fifth straight loss.
The Pistons have won four of five since their early slump.
“We thought we could have won all five of those games,” said Gordon, who had eight points in the fourth quarter. “Now we’re finishing games out like we know we can.”
