Lawrence Frank to Roll with Pistons’ Bench
Rodney Stuckey (left ankle sprain) is still out, but coach Lawrence Frank said he would continue to ride with the newfound prowess of the Pistons’ bench until further notice despite being down one player.
The reserves had racked up 149 points in the two games before Sunday’s 96-94 victory over Milwaukee, when the bench accounted for 33 points.
“They have good chemistry, and they fit together,” Frank said. “Will (Bynum) is our best pick-and-roll player. Charlie (Villanueva) and Austin (Daye) both spread you out on the floor. Andre (Drummond) is our best finisher as a big, and whether it was Rodney, prior, or (Kyle) Singler or (Tayshaun) Prince or someone who hasn’t played … we play a different way with that group that fits the strengths of that group.”
