Pistons 120, Utah 116

AUBURN HILLS (WWJ) – A much-needed win for the Detroit Pistons as they out-slug the Utah Jazz 120-116 Saturday at the Palace.

“It’s good to get back to basketball,” says Ben Gordon speaking post-game on WWJ. “Now we can talk about something else.”

Referring to the embarrassment of one night earlier, when Detroit used only six players in a lopsided loss at Philadelphia after several Pistons missed at least part of a team shootaround. Stuckey and Austin Daye, who arrived late to the shootaround and didn’t play Friday, were back on the court against the Jazz.

Daye scored 18 points, 11 in the fourth quarter.

Rodney Stuckey scored 28 points and made a big steal in the final minute.

Paul Millsap led Utah with 23 points.

Will Bynum, who had played all 48 minutes against Philadelphia, put Detroit ahead for good with a driving three-point play with 1:52 remaining.
