Brandon Knight came back from one injury and when the Detroit Pistons guard was forced back to the bench 45 seconds later, he had a second one. Knight left Wednesday's win over the Charlotte Bobcats with a hyperextended right knee in the third quarter. Upon his return, he quickly incurred a twisted right ankle and hobbled back to the bench again. "I think I was just trying to compensate and wasn't really ready to go back out there, just wanted to," Knight said. "God found a way to sit me down." Booth Newspapers

Utah's extra feisty and physical defense was a popular topic in the Pistons locker room, according to the Detroit News. Beat writer Vincent Goodwill described the Jazz as using "physical play (that) bordered on early-90's assault as they mucked up the game, preventing the Pistons from doing virtually anything on the offensive end." Forward Jason Maxiell: "They took advantage and hit us and we didn't fight back, got us into a hole." Guard Brandon Knight: "They punched us in the face and there was nothing we could do about it. "Instead of fighting back, we just kind of laid down a little bit." Deseret News

Dooling earned a reputation as a mentor for young players over the years, including the Pistons' Brandon Knight and the Celtics' Rajon Rondo. He was, in the NBA lexicon, a good locker room guy. He ascended to a vice presidential role in the players' union, always immaculately dressed, able to roll in all manner of different worlds, paying his mentor role forward as he had been helped over the years by the likes of Eddie Jones, Doug Overton and Adonal Foyle, among others. "It's my duty," Dooling said. "I get a lot of pleasure seeing young men, people around their game, reach their goals, accomplish their goals. Uplift their family, uplift their community. And a lot of times, cats just don't know how to do it. They don't know how to put a name or a face to that success they're striving to achieve. I kind of normalize it for them, because I've come from nothing. I've come from the slums, the City Zone, as we like to call it in Fort Lauderdale. I've had a very unique ride, a very unique journey." NBA.com

"I feel like I'm not in a rhythm at all," Stuckey said about his poor shooting. "I just feel like last year, I was having the ball in my hand, being able to create, and play in transition. Coming in the second quarter when Brandon Knight went to the bench last year, being the point guard, and being able to use my post position on smaller guards, I just feel like I'm not using that right now.
