Default Rodney Stuckey hits game-winning J to beat Wizards

Stuckey’s late jumper lifts Pistons over Wizards

The AP reports: With three minutes left in a game Pistons coach Lawrence Frank called “ugly, grimy, grindy”—and his team won, beating the Washington Wizards 79-77—the aesthetic highlight, without a doubt, came when Detroit rookie Brandon Knight got drenched while hurdling over the team’s sideline seats in futile pursuit of a loose ball. Knight upended a jug of energy drink and about a dozen paper cups Monday night, spraying himself and some seated teammates. Play was delayed for a bit while Knight toweled off—and some of the evening’s most enthusiastic applause came in response to overhead video-board replays of his valiant and athletic effort... Yes, given the utter lack of good basketball displayed by two lottery-bound teams, Knight gave the Pistons a needed nudge, and Rodney Stuckey gave them the winning 20-foot jumper with 0.2 seconds left. Stuckey scored half of his 24 points in the fourth quarter, and the Pistons erased a 13-point deficit to end a five-game losing streak... Greg Monroe, who played home games on the Wizards’ court while at Georgetown, had 10 points and 10 rebounds, including a putback off a miss by Tayshaun Prince with 23 seconds remaining to put Detroit ahead 76-75. After Detroit’s Ben Wallace made one free throw, Washington’s Nene tied it at 77 on a hook shot with 5.8 seconds to go.
