Will Bynum, one of the most cerebral and low-key Pistons, was lifted from the game with 8:52 left in the second quarter and the Magic leading 32-28, and the ensuing nose-to-nose confrontation he engaged with head coach Maurice Cheeks was the clearest signal yet of internal tension.

Chauncey Billups and Josh Smith had to cool down Bynum, who didn’t play again.

Cheeks called the disagreement with Bynum “part of the game.”

“We had a few words and we moved on,” he said.
