Charlotte got great production from their two guards off the bench as Ramon Sessions (20) and Ben Gordon (27) became the third set of teammates in franchise history to score 20 or more off the bench. Detroit should win this game and continue their winning streak but it will be a struggle against rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (10.8ppg) and company who match up well against the Pistons.
