Michael Jordan and Jerry Stackhouse went head-to-head last night, as Detroit hosted Washington.
Stackhouse netted 36 points (16-16 FT) and seven assists, while Jordan had 24 points (7-20 FG) and six boards.
"It's been tough for me a little bit in these preseason games to get motivated even though I know we need the work," Stackhouse told the Washington Post. "A game like tonight when you've got the greatest player on the court, we rose to the occasion."
