Pistons' Jackson, Bulls' Rondo have things to prove

Detroit Pistons point guard Reggie Jackson hopes to build off his season debut. His counterpart on Tuesday gets a chance to make amends after yet another disciplinary issue.

Jackson posted 18 points and four assists in 23 minutes after missing the team's first 21 games with left knee tendinitis. That didn't prevent the Pistons from seeing their three-game winning streak snapped, as they were defeated 98-92 by the Orlando Magic in Detroit on Sunday.

Jackson also committed three turnovers, missed a couple of layups and got beaten off the dribble a few times. He'll be in the starting lineup once again when Detroit plays the Chicago Bulls at The Palace of Auburn Hills on Tuesday night. Jackson averaged 23.5 points and 7.5 assists last season against the Bulls as the Pistons won the season series, 3-1.
