Pistons Vs. Kings Final Score: Rodney Stuckey, Brandon Knight Lead Detroit Past Sacramento,

Believe it or not, the Detroit Pistons have now won six of their last eight games, and they won Friday night against the Sacramento Kings with barely any production out of their best player, Greg Monroe. Monroe scored just one basket (three points), but he got a little help from his back court 'mates, Rodney Stuckey and Brandon Knight throughout the game.

Stuckey and Knight combined for 59 points, 10 assists (one turnover), and nine rebounds. They hit back-to-back threes in the waning minutes to put the game away and give Detroit their 10th win of the season.

The Pistons wasted the (once) coveted DeMarcus Cousins' strong game for the Kings; he finished with 26 points and 15 rebounds, and he was doubtful to play earlier in the day with bask spasms. Tyreke Evans added 16 points and nine assists, and the Kings shot 50-percent as a team.

Detroit will go for seven of nine on Sunday when they take on the Celtics again.
