Truth About It

Notes

1. Stuckey will play. David Mayo of MLive:

Rodney Stuckey returns to the Detroit Pistons tonight, in a reserve role, after a pulled left hamstring cost him almost all of the last four games.

Gordon played well against the Magic, so it’s not really imperative that Stuckey get back in there quickly or anything anyway.

2. See ya next year, Ben Wallace.

Wallace joked that he might let the fans vote on whether or not he plays next year. Well Ben, sorry to inform you, 75 percent of fans who have voted in the poll say you are coming back.
