  • SAN ANTONIO — Kyle Singler is turning into one of the few bright spots on the PisDetroit tons.
    He was averaging 12.4 points per game for the month entering Wednesday night's game at San Antonio.
    His shooting percentage was 50 percent (21-for-42) from 3-point range since he was inserted into the starting lineup Feb. 5 at Orlando.
    Considering the up-and-down nature of the team, Singler's consistency has been welcome.
    "He's done a nice job," interim Pistons coach John Loyer said. "He's a worker. He sees the shots he's gonna get in a game and by golly those are the shots he works on.
    "He's a guy for two years, every day you walk in and don't think about him, but you know what you're going to get out of him."
    After spending most of the season as the backup small forward, Singler is adjusting to starting at shooting guard.
    "Now he's more chasing guys off screens with one or two dribbles off the bounce," Loyer said. "It's something he works on every day and he watches a lot of tape on."
