Milwaukee 103, Pistons 82
MILWAUKEE (WWJ/AP) – The Detroit Pistons continue to struggle on the road losing to the Milwaukee Bucks 103-82 on Monday night.
The Pistons have lost 10 of their last 11 on the road – the loss in Milwaukee makes 5 in a row for Detroit.
Rodney Stuckey scored a team high 19 points, Greg Monroe hit for 16 pts. and 10 rebounds, and Tayshaun Prince finished with 14 pts.
The Pistons (4-18) played without Ben Gordon because of a sore shoulder, Charlie Villanueva due to a sore right ankle and Will Bynum because of a strained right foot.
Brandon Jennings had 21 points, reserve Mike Dunleavy added a season-high 20 on 8-of-10 shooting for the Bucks.
Drew Gooden shot 7 of 9 and scored 16 points for Milwaukee, including 10 straight early in the third quarter during a decisive 12-2 run to open the second half. Detroit, which has lost five straight and nine of 10, never led in falling to 4-18.
Jennings scored nine points in the first 7 and 1/2 minutes, helping the Bucks to a 30-16 lead after the first quarter. He added 12 in the third period.
Milwaukee (9-11) defeated the Lakers 100-89 on Saturday, bouncing back from a 107-100 loss at Chicago the previous night. Already playing without injured center Andrew Bogut, the Bucks learned shortly before Saturday’s game that Stephen Jackson was suspended for verbal abuse of an official and failure to leave the court in a timely manner against the Bulls.
