GAME RECAP

Newly acquired Jerry Stackhouse scored 20 points in his first game against his former team as the Detroit Pistons routed the Philadelphia 76ers, 115-78, in a game that was as one-sided as their trade two days ago.

Jerome Williams had career highs of 22 points and 13 rebounds for the Pistons, who have beaten the 76ers in 11 of the last 12 meetings and recorded their biggest win ever in the all-time series. The previous margin came exactly 25 years ago, when Detroit defeated Philadelphia, 141-113.

"It's amazing how many weapons we have now," Williams said. "We've got three NBA Slam Dunk finalists running the court at the same time. So obviously, we're going to be able to do some things. I started to show some of my real game tonight. In the next few weeks, I hope I can show you more."

Acquired with center Eric Montross for forward Theo Ratliff and guard Aaron McKie on Thursday, Stackhouse scored a season-high 33 points in his Detroit debut Friday and stayed hot against the Sixers.

He scored 10 points in the second quarter, when the Pistons took the lead for good, and added eight in an 18-4 burst that began the fourth quarter and blew open the game. Afterwards, he was hugged by several of his former teammates. The teams meet again in Philadelphia on Monday.

"Somebody had to lose and I'm glad we were able to come out and get the win," Stackhouse said. "I'm looking forward to going back home and (wrapping) things up. The most important thing now is for us to try and build our team and get ready for the later stages of the season."

Montross, who has been dealt three times in his four-year career and struggled mightily with the Sixers, had six points and a season-high 14 rebounds. Ratliff, who scored 17 points in his Sixers debut Friday, had eight points, six rebounds and seven blocks and McKie managed four points.

"It's not quite the way I wanted to come back here," Ratliff said. "We gave them too many easy baskets on the break. We have to do the job as far as picking up people on defense. I still have to learn the offense and learn my teammates. I've played two games but haven't had a practice. It's kind of different. I don't know where people are going to be or where to expect the pass."

"I told Theo we've been friends a long time, so he shouldn't dunk on me," Williams said. "If you're gonna dunk, you should dunk on someone else. Then he went right ahead and tried to dunk on me. I had so much intensity tonight, because I knew Theo would, and I didn't want him to embarrass me."

Grant Hill scored 18 points for the Pistons, who posted a season high in points and matched their second-best defensive effort. Detroit, which had lost three in a row, overcame an injury to forward-center Brian Williams, who pulled his right groin in the second quarter and did not return.

Detroit native Derrick Coleman scored 16 points for the Sixers, who have lost five straight games. Philadelphia surrendered a season high in points and managed its worst total since scoring 74 against Chicago in the second game of the season.

"They just played great and we didn't challenge them," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "They played with so much more effort than we did. Eric and Jerry really contributed. We did a reasonably good job on Hill but everyone else had their way with us. When we get behind, there's no passion to win, no urgency to get back into it."

The Pistons breezed despite a terrible start that saw them miss 15 of their first 17 shots. They shot 19 percent (5-of-26) from the field in the first quarter and trailed, 20-16.

Two free throws by Stackhouse gave the Pistons the lead for good at 35-33 with 5:31 left in the second quarter. Stackhouse and Hill scored 10 points each in the period, which ended with Detroit holding a 51-44 advantage.

"We had a lot of energy, starting in the second quarter," said Stackhouse. "Things came together and the energy carried us throughout the game."

The Sixers still were within 69-60 after a hoop by Coleman with 3:56 left in the third quarter, but Jerome Williams scored four points in a 13-4 spurt that closed the period and gave the Pistons an 82-64 lead.

Stackhouse and Jerome Williams scored eight points apiece as Detroit surged to a 100-66 cushion with 6:56 remaining. The Pistons took their largest lead at 114-76 on two free throws by rookie Charles O'Bannon with 1:41 to play.

Lindsey Hunter scored 17 points and Malik Sealy added 14 for the Pistons, who shot 45 percent (39-of-87) and held a 54-39 edge on the glass. Detroit committed just eight turnovers.

"Obviously, we started sluggish, but it didn't last long," said Pistons coach Doug Collins said. "Jerome, Stack, Malik and Don Reid all had a lot of energy off the bench. We went small in order to run and that worked very well. Jerome was fantastic, even more than the stats show."

Jimmy Jackson scored 13 points and Allen Iverson added 12 in his second straight sub-par game for the Sixers, who shot 37 percent (29-of-78) and committed 17 turnovers.
