Rodney Stuckey looking like crap early in season
Rodney Stuckey continued his struggles, part of which could be attributed to his migraine headaches that he's getting treatment for. He hasn't made a basket on this trip, missed all six of his attempts Sunday and for the season, he's 1-for-23 — with the Pistons getting off to such slow starts, perhaps they'll explore sitting him until he recovers.
His backcourt partner, Brandon Knight, wasn't much better, either. Knight, a second-year point guard, had trouble initiating the offense and had five turnovers. The Pistons shot 35 percent from the field, allowing the Lakers to shoot 62 percent in the first half.
After the first two games, winnable ones that slipped out of the Pistons reach for some reason or another, this one had a different feel — especially the starting five, which didn't have a player reach double figures.
