The Detroit Pistons ended several losing streaks on Saturday night -- a five game losing streak at home, a four game losing streak overall, and a seven game losing streak to the Portland Trail Blazers. Thanks to a 94-91 win at The Palace, all of those are now over.
Following a 28-16 second quarter, and a 11-point lead at the half, the Pistons really had control throughout. The Blazers trimmed their deficit to five after three quarters, but the Pistons never had to sweat until the final minute.
The Trail Blazers pulled within three points with 37 seconds remaining and then one point with eight seconds left, but Rodney Stuckey sealed it for the Pistons by hitting four free throws.
Stuckey was the best Piston tonight with 28 points on 8-for-15 shooting. Brandon Knight added 14 points and Greg Monroe had 10 points and eight rebounds.
The Pistons now travel to Oklahoma City to take on the West's best on Monday, Kevin Durant and the Thunder.
