Pistons Vs. Lakers Final Score: Rodney Stuckey Leads Detroit Past Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles In Overtime

The Palace of Auburn Hills -- full of fans who came to see the masked Kobe Bryant -- was given a show. The Rodney Stuckey show. Stuckey scored a game-high 34 points on 13-for-20 shooting, 11 of those coming in the fourth quarter and then another six coming in overtime.

Fans saw plenty of what they paid to see, though -- Bryant heaved 26 shots (and only made eight of them); one of his makes was a big one, as he hit a fadeaway at the buzzer of regulation to force overtime.

But Stuckey kept coming in overtime when Kobe didn't, scoring six of the Pistons' 10 points in a 10-7 overtime period in Detroit's favor. Bryant's three-point attempt with six seconds was off the mark and Metta World Peace missed a desperation three after corralling the rebound and hustling it back out to the three-point line as the final seconds ticked off.

Greg Monroe struggled mightily with Andrew Bynum, who scored 30 points and had 14 rebounds against the Pistons' 21-year-old second year big man. Monroe had just two points on 1-for-10 shooting. He did have 15 rebounds, though.

The Pistons play again on Friday when they host the Atlanta Hawks.
