Pistons coach Lawrence Frank expected a riled up opponent in the Sacramento Kings on Monday night.

Sacramento had endured a 26-point home loss to the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday and sought revenge after the Pistons' close victory at the Palace nearly a month ago.

Sure enough, they were energetic from the opening tip through the second quarter, when they rolled to a 16-point lead. But these are the Kings, whose defense is among the worst in the league. And that defense was in a giving mood.

The main beneficiary was Rodney Stuckey.
