Pistons Get The Win Over Bobcats

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WWJ/AP) – The Detroit Pistons get a much-needed road win, beating the Charlotte Bobcats 112-101 on Sunday night.

A slow start was aided by the top scoring of Rodney Stuckey’s  24 points, and fellow reserve Charlie Villanueva added 20 to beat the reeling Charlotte Bobcats.

Chris Wilcox chipped in with 14 points for the Pistons, who shot 56 percent from the field in their third straight win and second in three days since California investor Tom Gores reached a deal to buy the team.

Hours after coach John Kuester said he hopes to return for the last year of his contract, the Pistons overcame a 15-point, first- quarter deficit for their first road victory since Feb. 9 at Cleveland.

Gerald Henderson scored 21 points and Boris Diaw 20 for the Bobcats, who have dropped six straight.
