AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Ben Gordon scored 22 points and Rodney Stuckey added 20 as the new-look Detroit Pistons remained undefeated in the preseason with a 100-91 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night.
The Pistons are now 3-0 even though Charlie Villanueva (hamstring) has yet to play. Richard Hamilton and Will Bynum combined for 26 more points, helping Detroit overcome just eight points from its starting frontcourt.
The Pistons used Stuckey's buzzer-beating jumper to take a 49-46 lead at the half, and then moved their advantage to 75-66 on Gordon's 30-footer at the end of the third period.
The teams combined to commit 57 fouls, leading to 59 free throws.
