Pistons Vs. Magic Score Update: Detroit Down Big In Orlando At Half

The Pistons are taking on the Orlando Magic for the second time in less than a week. While the Pistons beat the Magic in Detroit on April 3, 102-95, they find themselves down 21 in Orlando, 64-43.

The Pistons aren't playing the poorest game offensively, but they have not been able to stop the Magic on defense. Orlando is shooting 10-for-19 from long distance and has 16 assists on their 22 baskets overall. Jason Richardson leads the Magic with 13 points, thanks in part to 3-for-4 from three pointers.

The Pistons are getting most of their production from Tayshaun Prince; he has 15 on 6-for-9 shooting and a team-high four rebounds. Greg Monroe, who had 22 points and 11 rebounds in the Pistons' win last week, only has nine points and four rebounds.

Dwight Howard is not playing due to back spasms and will also miss Orlando's game on Wednesday.
