Jerry Stackhouse returned to the Nets lineup for the first time in 22 games dating back to Jan. 26?in Houston. Stackhouse fittingly returned to action against his former team, the Detroit Pistons, where he became a two-time All-Star and led the NBA with 2,380 points during the 2000-01 season.As Brooklyn embarked on the first of an eight-game road trip, Stackhouse turned back the clock and provided a spark off the bench after a 51-day layoff between appearances. Stackhouse brought the ?Stack Attack? to the Palace of Auburn Hills and scored 10 points while shooting an efficient five-for-six from the field. Stackhouse also fired up his teammates on the bench with a blocked shot, one of numerous stingy defensive plays by Brooklyn to hold Detroit to 82 points.
Stackhouse is doing much more than mentoring the Nets this year and has become an important piece off the bench for PJ Carlesimo.

Moke Hamilton, SNYNets.comNEW YORK ?

Unfortunately, Avery Johnson told the media after morning shootaround that Jerry Stackhouse would not be available on Friday night.
Before tip-off, he spoke with the media about his current condition and when he may return.

One statistic stood out from the rest in the Nets' Dec. 4 contest with the Oklahoma City Thunder. It wasn't the 60 percent clip that the Thunder converted from the field, and it wasn't the Nets' 15 offensive rebounds.
It wasn't even the 30-for-34 shooting that the Thunder did from the free-throw line.

Michael Scotto, SNYNets.comNEW YORK ? At 38-years-old, Jerry Stackhouse is perceived as the older man you play against in the park who?s played across the neighborhood for years. Metaphorically, Stackhouse is the guy chosen for a pick-up game because of his experience while showing flashes of the moves that made him a revered legend by his peers.
He may not be the player he was during the 2000-01 season when he led the NBA in scoring at 29.8 points per game, but he is still a serviceable player on the court and a vital veteran leader on the sidelines.
