Pistons 112, Magic 86

AUBURN HILLS (AP) – Rodney Stuckey scored 19 points and Greg Monroe added 15 points and four rebounds to lead the Detroit Pistons to a 112-86 preseason victory over the Orlando Magic on Tuesday night.
Rookie DeQuan Jones had 22 points to pace Orlando (0-4).

After leading by three points at the end of the first quarter, the Pistons (2-2) outscored the Magic 35-14 in the second quarter to take a 62-38 lead heading into the break.
Detroit gave a glimpse of the future in a 23-second span that featured two alley-oop dunks, one from rookie Andre Drummond off a pass from Monroe and another off a perfect lob from second-year guard Brandon Knight to Stuckey.

Orlando was without five players, including Arron Afflalo (strained left hamstring) and Al Harrington (right knee rehabilitation). Rookie Chris Johnson also left the game in the fourth quarter with a leg injury.
