The SportsXchange

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Guard Rodney Stuckey led seven Pistons in double figures with 17 points as Detroit sent the reeling Milwaukee Bucks to their ninth consecutive loss 113-94 on Monday at The Palace.

Forward Greg Monroe had 16 points and point guard Brandon Jennings, who played his first four seasons with the Bucks before he was dealt to Detroit during the offseason, supplied 15 points and 13 assists. Rookie guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope tossed in a career-high 14 points.

Center Andre Drummond contributed 12 points and eight rebounds for the Pistons. Forward Charlie Villanueva had 12 points off the bench and forward Josh Smith chipped in 10 points, seven rebounds and four assists.

The Pistons, who never trailed, led by as much as 33 in the first half and 34 points after the break. Detroit (6-8), which began a four-game homestand, won for the second time in as many days. It defeated Brooklyn 109-97 on Sunday afternoon.

Forward John Henson had 15 points and seven rebounds for Milwaukee (2-11), which committed 20 turnovers that led to 26 Pistons points. Small forward Khris Middleton, one of the players traded for Jennings, and guard Gary Neal added 14 points apiece. The Bucks have lost by double digits five times during their current skid.

The Pistons had five players in double figures by halftime as they roared to a 65-34 lead. Jennings buried three consecutive 3-pointers late in the first quarter to give Detroit a 34-14 lead. Detroit, which scored a season-high 38 first-quarter points, scored 15 answered points in the second quarter when the lead reached 31.

Detroit's lead was still 26, 92-66, after three quarters.

NOTES: The Bucks used 10 different starting lineups in their first 13 games. Coach Larry Drew started 12 different players, with only injured G/F Carlos Delfino and little used rookie G/F Giannis Antetokounmpo and C Miroslav Raduljica failing to get a start. ... Milwaukee's last nine-game losing streak covered the final eight games of the 2007-08 season and the opener of the 2008-09 season. ... Pistons C Andre Drummond led the NBA in field-goal percentage (.664) entering the game but had made just seven of 29 free throw tries (.241). ... Pistons G Chauncey Billups (knee tendinitis) missed his seventh consecutive game. ... Detroit SF Kyle Singler wore goggles because of an allergic reaction to his contact lenses. ... The Bucks were playing the third of 11 consecutive games against Eastern Conference teams. Their next Western Conference opponent is the San Antonio Spurs on Dec. 11. ... The teams have a combined 11 first- and second-year players on their rosters.
