Bobcats Vs. Pistons Final: Detroit Pulls Off 110-107 Overtime Win

The Detroit Pistons might have avoided the embarrassment of losing to the Charlotte Bobcats, the NBA's single worst team, on Saturday night, but they needed every second of the five minute overtime period to pull it off.

Detroit (now 19-33 on the year) picked up 24 points and nine rebounds in a strong game from Tayshaun Prince, as the lanky veteran flashed the all-around skills that made him such a fan favorite over the last decade. Despite such a high usage rate, Prince turned the ball over just a single time in 39 minutes on the court.

Jonas Jerebko was also excellent off the bench for the Pistons, as he broke a five-game streak of failing to reach double figures in scoring with 18 points on 8-for-11 shooting. Rookie point guard Brandon Knight, however, continues to struggle with his shot. Knight connected on just five of his 15 field goal attempts in the game, and is nearing closer to moving his season average below 40% for the year.

The Pistons will try to build on this win on Tuesday at The Palace against Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic.
