Former Clipper guard Malik Sealy missed four of five shots and had four points and four rebounds in 30 minutes in the Detroit Pistons' 94-76 victory over the Clippers on Thursday at the Arrowhead Pond.
"I didn't play like I wanted to, but we got the win," Sealy said. "I struggled a little bit. My shot was a little long. I think my legs were gone."
Sealy said he was happy to return to Southern California.
"I'm still friendly with a few of the people here," he said. "There's no animosity."
Resplendent in a red suit and matching glasses that he designed, Sealy held court with friends after the game.
Guard Brent Barry, who replaced Sealy in the starting lineup, walked off the court with Sealy after the game.
Guard Pooh Richardson has been held out of five consecutive games and seven of the last nine by Coach Bill Fitch.
