Pistons get boost from Villanueva vs. Bobcats

"I'm embarrassed."

Charlotte entered the game averaging an NBA-low 85 points a game and didn't even approach that lowly total, settling for jump shots and failing to create shots off the dribble.

The Bobcats' 12-point quarter wasn't even their worse of the season. They scored just 10 in three different quarters against three teams this season.

Detroit didn't have any trouble scoring and it was solid on defense as it has been - surprisingly - so far with its revamped roster thanks in part to revitalized Ben Wallace.

Detroit's Will Bynum scored 16 points and the 6-foot guard sparked a second-quarter run with a baseline drive and dunk past the 7-1 Chandler.

"That got us going," Gordon said. "Will is one of those guys that is a freak of nature."

Bynum said he tried to dunk on Chandler once in high school.

"I missed," Bynum said.

Rodney Stuckey also scored 16 for the Pistons, who have a .500 record after winning two straight for the first time this season.


Detroit's Richard Hamilton (right ankle) and Tayshaun Prince (lower back) didn't play and Kuester said both players "looked better" earlier in the day. Hamilton said "probably not" when asked if he expected to play on an upcoming road trip, starting Nov. 17 against the Lakers and ending Nov. 22 at Phoenix. ... Detroit's next two games are also against former coaches: Washington's Flip Saunders and Dallas' Rick Carlisle. ... Charlotte fell to 0-4 on the road.
