Auburn Hills, MI (Sports Network) - Brandon Knight poured in 20 points as the
Detroit Pistons snapped their 18-game losing slide to Chicago with a 99-85
victory over the Bulls at The Palace of Auburn Hills.
Rodney Stuckey added 14 points for the Pistons, who had won just two of their
previous 25 meetings against their Central Division rival from the Windy City.
Greg Monroe chipped in 11 points and Andre Drummond had 10 rebounds.
The win came without point guard Jose Calderon, who did not play due to a
triceps strain. Detroit's win also ended their eight-game losing streak at The
Palace of Auburn Hills.
Carlos Boozer paced the Bulls with 21 points and 10 rebounds, but it was not
enough to make up for the absence of Luol Deng, who did not dress due to a
sore hip. Nate Robinson had 18 points on 8-of-19 shooting from the floor while
Joakim Noah returned to the lineup after missing the last eight games to tally
13 points and seven rebounds.
Chicago is now 42-34, which places it two games back of Brooklyn for fourth
place in the Eastern Conference and just one game ahead of Atlanta.
