Rodney Stuckey coming alive lately for Pistons
Rodney Stuckey is really coming alive of late for the Detroit Pistons. After leading his team to a 10-point road win over the Boston Celtics on Wednesday, Stuckey is now averaging 18.0 points, 5.2 assists, 1.4 steals, and 81.6 percent shooting from the line over his past five games, and should continue putting up big numbers for the foreseeable future after struggling quite a bit to start the season.
Stuckey, remember, finished 86th on the Player Rater last season and is currently well outside the top 100 this season. His minutes are down, but he's actually improved as a 3-point shooter and is still getting to the line a lot and making a ton of free throws. He could be a nice second-half performer if he can keep getting minutes, so it will be interesting to see if any changes to the Pistons' rotation happen with the trade deadline fast approaching.
