Through the first half it felt like a competitive game. But Denver kept pulling at their lead until it was a blowout. The quick nuggets from Denver:
• Rodney Stuckey looked like he was back on track in the first half with 14 points on decent shooting. But he finished with 17 points on terrible shooting.
• Moose actually did get back on track with 27 points, 10 boards, 2 assists, 3 blocks, a steal, and only 2 turnovers. You know, franchise playery stuff.
• From the rest of the field, it was a story of good and bad. Brandon Knight, Tayshaun Prince, and Will Bynum shot 4-19. Max, Jonas Jerebko, Kyle Singler, Andre Drummond, and Kim English shot 16-22.
• The Pistons came into the game last in the league in rebounding differential at -11.7. That number got worse, as Detroit was out-rebounded by 17, 52-35.
