Rookies getting torched happens, but it occurs to point guards with more frequency.

So it wasn't surprising to see Pistons rookie Brandon Knight go through the gamut Monday against the Bucks Brandon Jennings, one of the league's hottest point men.

Jennings dominated Knight, scoring 21 as Knight went scoreless for the first time in his career in a 103-82 loss to the Bucks.

In a way, it seems like a rite of passage for point guards to have an older player light them up.

"Heck, I've seen a Hall of Fame point guard go through it," said Pistons coach Lawrence Frank, referring to Jason Kidd. "If you're struggling and the other guy has it going, it happens."
