THE LEAD: Jefferson piled up 32 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists as the Charlotte Bobcats won the first game of a home-and-home series with the Detroit Pistons 108-96 Tuesday night at The Palace of Auburn HIlls. Point guard Kemba Walker contributed 22 points and six assists, and forward Josh McRoberts added 14 points and 10 rebounds. The Bobcats moved 1 1/2 games ahead of Detroit in the race for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The teams play again Wednesday night in Charlotte. Point guard Brandon Jennings led the Pistons with 24 points and seven assists.

QUOTABLE: "My teammate over here (guard Jannero Pargo), I told him I was just going to ride the bike for the All-Star break. He said, 'No, you need to get in the gym because that could be the difference between you having 20 and 30 points.' So, I got in the gym Saturday and Sunday and finished with 32."
-- Jefferson on coming back in top form after the All-Star break.

THE STAT: 0. The first time the teams met on Dec. 20, Charlotte trailed by 18 late in the third quarter, then roared back with a 41-point fourth quarter for a 116-106 victory. The Bobcats' return to The Palace played out much differently, as they scored on their first seven field-goal attempts while the amount of times the Pistons led was zero.

TURNING POINT: Detroit cut its deficit to eight, 89-81, on a Jennings 3-pointer with 5:40 remaining in the game. Charlotte got an immediate response from McRoberts, who fired in a 3-pointer off a kickout pass from Jefferson. When the Pistons got within single digits again with just over three minutes left, Jefferson scored on Charlotte's next four possessions to close out the victory.

HOT: Pistons center Andre Drummond, coming off his MVP Performance in the All-Star Game's BBVA Rising Stars Challenge, had another monster game around the boards as he tied his career high with 22 rebounds. Drummond also scored 16 points while achieving his 40th double-double, an Eastern Conference best and the most by a Piston since Grant Hill's 44 double-doubles in 1995-96. He has grabbed at least six offensive rebounds in eight consecutive games, the most by any NBA player since Dennis Rodman did that eight straight times in 1992.

NOT: Pistons sixth man Rodney Stuckey is the key to Detroit's offense off the bench. Stuckey, who scored just four points against Cleveland in the team's last game prior to the break before experiencing dizziness, shot 1 for 11 from the field on Tuesday in a 17-minute stint while scoring two points. The Pistons bench combined for just 13 points.

QUOTABLE II: "We have to have energy. We have to play with passion. These are critical games for us. Every game is a playoff game and we can't give up games like this or we'll find ourselves on the outside looking in."
-- Detroit reserve guard Will Bynum on the rematch between the teams on Wednesday.

ROOKIE WATCH: Both of the team's first-round picks last June had forgettable nights. Charlotte's Cody Zeller had one point and four rebounds in 15 minutes while Detroit's Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had zeroes across the board in a 10-minute outing.

NOTABLE: The Pistons had a seven-low seven turnovers but also forced a season-low tying seven turnovers. ... Jefferson's double-double was his 24th this season while McRoberts' double-double was his second. .... Charlotte guard Gerald Henderson had a season-high seven assists. ... Monroe's double-double was his 22nd. ... Drummond has four games with 10-plus offensive rebounds while the remainder of the league has six. .... Charlotte improved to 14-3 when it reaches 100 points. ... Forward Charlie Villanueva was not with the Pistons for personal reasons but might rejoin them in Charlotte for Wednesday night's game.
