Pistons vs. Bucks: Detroit sets position rotations for preseason game at Milwaukee

Detroit will look to lessen turnovers in Saturday's road clash with the Bucks.

After splitting the preseason's first two games with Toronto, The Pistons hit the road to take on the Bucks at 8:30 p.m. ET Saturday at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee.

Pistons coach Lawrence Frank said forward Austin Daye will rotate with Jason Maxiell and guard Terrence Williams will back up Rodney Stuckey. Stuckey had 14 points Friday.

Other substitutions he mentioned are Slava Kravtsov backing up Greg Monroe and Kyle Singler backing up Tayshaun Prince.

The 28 turnovers the committed in their 82-75 loss to the Raptors didn't help things, but as a team, the Piston shot .347, a mark that will improve as they continue through the preseason. Toronto was 22-for-23 from the free throw line, but managed just a seven-point victory.

Milwaukee defeated Cleveland 97-90 in its only preseason game thus far. They will be without forward Ekpe Udoh, who suffered a strained knee against the Cavaliers. The Bucks hope to get him back for their season opener Nov. 2 at Boston.
