–Forward Tayshaun Prince became the sixth player in franchise history Saturday to play in 700 career games with Detroit. Prince, a 2002 draft pick, has played at least 78 games in seven of his nine seasons. The only players who have played more games in a Pistons uniform are Joe Dumars (1,018), Isiah Thomas (979), Bill Laimbeer (937), Vinnie Johnson (798) and Lindsey Hunter (703).

“It speaks of his professionalism and consistency,” coach Lawrence Frank said. “One of the first talents you look for in a player is availability. Are they going to be available every night? The second one you look for is reliability. He fills those marks pretty good. There are a lot of talented guys in this league but they’re only playing 50 or 60 games a season, so you’re not getting their full talents. With Tay, you know what you’re going to get every single night.”
