ABOUT THE PISTONS: Detroit has won three of its last four games, including a win over Miami, 109-99, at home Friday night. The Pistons' only loss in that stretch came in double overtime at Atlanta. Former Bucks forward Charlie Villanueva has been red-hot recently to spark a productive Pistons bench. He combined with reserve guard Will Bynum to score 26 of the Pistons' 39 fourth-quarter points in Atlanta to help force overtime. The Pistons trailed by 22 points early in the final quarter. The Detroit bench scored a franchise-record 85 points against the Hawks, the most by an NBA team since Charlotte scored 85 against Boston in 1999. And the Pistons reserves scored 64 against Miami, including 25 by Bynum and 18 by Villanueva as he sank 4 of 5 three-pointers.
