AUBURN HILLS (WWJ/AP) The Pistons struggled to fill the seats and struggled to find the basket, losing to the Charlotte Bobcats, 97-87 Wednesday evening at the Palace.

Stephen Jackson scored a season- high 39 points for the Charlotte Bobcats and former Pistons center Kwame Brown added 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Bobcats, who snapped a two-game losing streak.

Charlotte held the Pistons to 39 percent shooting in the first half, and held a 28-14 rebounding advantage, but only led 44-41 at the break. That allowed Detroit to get back into the game, starting with a 9-2 run to open the second half.

The Pistons led in the third quarter 63-60 when the Bobcats went on a run and never looked back.

“That’s a lack of concentration….it’s not executing the game plan all the way through,” said Rick Mahorn post-game on WWJ.

 Detroit, which lost its fourth in a row, was missing Rodney Stuckey.(shoulder) and Jason Maxiell (back). Ben Gordon led the Pistons with 20 points and Tayshaun Prince added 16.
