It turned into the Rodney Stuckey show Tuesday in more ways than one. He not only ran the Pistons at game’s end but he led the team, something Pistons brass wished happened more often and on a more consistent basis.

It is nights like this where Stuckey is both a joy to watch and frustrating to follow.

He was the best player on the floor during the Pistons 92-86 victory over the New York Knicks at The Palace. He came off the bench to score 21 points and pass for five assists. And he made the best play of the game when he snuck a bounce pass to Andre Drummond (13 points, 11 rebounds) for one of his four dunks in the game.

The Stuckey assist gave the Pistons a 78-63 lead and this glimpse of good Rodney Stuckey showed why the Pistons stuck with this guy for so long. The question is, which Stuckey do the Pistons (4-6) get Wednesday night when they play the Atlanta Hawks at Philips Arena in Atlanta?

Josh Smith added 19 points and Greg Monroe had 16.

Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks (3-7) with 25 points
