PISTONS MOVE PAST MAGIC
Tue, 25 Jan 2011 12:21 PM EST

The Detroit Pistons surged to their second straight win on Monday night over a sloppy Orlando Magic. The Central Division team is doing quite well despite alignment changes sparked by a recent rift between coach John Kuester and guard Rip Hamilton. Although the disagreement ended in Hamilton’s suspension from the next seven games, the Pistons have found their way to their first win over Orlando this season. Detroit shot 50 percent from 3-point range and had five players score double-digits to snap the Magic’s three-game winning streak. It all came to a close at 103-96 after regulation time. Basketball scores.

The Pistons [17-28] had control for the majority of the game, leading by as many as 14 points at one period in the game. Standing in for Hamilton, Rodney Stuckey gave 16 points and 2 rebounds, and nailed two important free throws in the closing minute of the game. Player of the game Tracy McGrady brought a bit of his old skill to the game to put up 20 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists. Tayshaun Prince and Austin Daye also contributed 20 points apiece. When the Magic did take the lead in the fourth, Detroit quickly crushed that with an 11-3 run to make a 97-90 cushion. The Pistons simply took the lead early on, and never looked back. Basketball odds.

The Magic displayed the lack of focus and defensive shortcoming that have become custom of Orlando’s recent losses. The team went 7 of 27 from 3-point range, and left the Pistons open to find the basket. Player of the game Dwight Howard came through with 20 points and 16 rebounds for a double-double, but no lineup coach Stan Van Gundy tried seemed to yield much. Anderson also finished with 21 points, 5 rebounds and 1 assist for his tenth straight game with scoring double-digits. Basketball spreads.

In the end, Howard’s words were true, “We’ve just got to play. Everybody knows what to do. We’re professional athletes. We know what to do, so it’s on us.” Perhaps the Magic will find their spark on Wednesday against the Indiana Pacers.
