AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Jan. 17 (UPI) -- Detroit's Rodney Stuckey put in 20 points Monday and the Pistons logged a season-best third straight win with a 103-89 decision over Dallas.

Tayshaun Prince added 19 points, Greg Monroe added 16 points and nine rebounds, and Charlie Villanueva came off the bench to score 15 points for the suddenly hot Pistons.

Ben Gordon added 11 as Detroit sent the Mavericks to their sixth straight loss.

Dallas superstar Dirk Nowitzki pumped in 32 points in his second game back after missing nine contests with a knee injury, but it wasn't enough to stop the Mavericks' slide.

Jason Terry contributed 18 points for Dallas.
