Game Recap

Joe Dumars scored 12 of his season-high 33 points in the second period and all eight of his fourth-quarter points in a key run as the Detroit Pistons snapped a seven-game losing streak with a 102-83 victory over the Washington Wizards.

Detroit led 26-12 after one quarter before Dumars collected 10 points in the first five minutes of the second. His two free throws built the lead to 40-18 with 7:22 left before halftime.

After coach Bernie Bickerstaff's ejection in the second period, Washington recorded its worst half of the season and faced a 60-29 halftime deficit.

The Wizards cut the margin to 85-75 on a jumper by Tracy Murray with 6:57 to play in the fourth quarter. But Dumars answered with seven straight points and, after two free throws by Jerome Williams, hit a foul shot to cap a 10-0 spurt for a 95-75 cushion with 3:18 to go.

"Tonight we held on, it all came together for us," Dumars said. "We had such a big lead when they made their run, we were still able to hold on. It took an entire half for them to get adjusted."

Grant Hill contributed 23 points, nine rebounds and seven assists and Jerry Stackhouse added 20 points for the Pistons, who never trailed and ended their longest losing streak of the season.

"We won a game and it's like Christmas. I'm not talking about anything else," Pistons coach Alvin Gentry said.

Murray scored 23 points to pace the Wizards, who fell 2 1/2 games behind New Jersey for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Washington played its first game without starting point guard Rod Strickland, who suffered a season-ending leg injury in Tuesday's loss at Chicago.

"I thought the first half seemed to be the culmination of everything coming down on us," Bickerstaff said. "I don't think they ever quit tonight. Sometimes you just get your butt kicked. I think they're hurting and I think they're disappointed, like all of us. We don't have any excuses. This is what we've got to live with."

Chris Webber had 20 points and 15 rebounds for the Wizards, who have dropped six of their last eight games and have a tough task ahead with five games to play. Webber and fellow starting forward Juwan Howard, who scored 13 points, are facing accusations of sexual misconduct but have yet to be charged.

"I hate losing, man, I hate losing," said Webber. "I usually have a smile on my face, tonight is nothing to smile about. We should be upset at each other."

"Luck has not been on our side and losing this one does not help at all," Howard added. "Yes, there have been some distractions, but that's still no excuse for the way we played tonight."

The Pistons took control early, reeled off 14 straight points late in the first quarter to take a 24-8 lead. Lindsey Hunter, who had eight assists and five steals, sparked the spurt with a layup, and Don Reid had back-to-back inside baskets. Stackhouse added three consecutive dunks before making two free throws to cap the burst with 1:05 left in the first quarter.

The 12 points in the opening period were a season low for the Wizards, who watched Hill start the second quarter with a layup before Dumars buried one of his six three-pointers for a 31-12 lead.

With 2:09 to go, Bickerstaff was called for a technical foul after arguing with an official, then picked up his second when he mimicked the referee behind his back. Stackhouse made one of two free throws to open a 49-25 lead.

The advantage was 53-29 with 11 seconds left before halftime when Washington collapsed. Charles O'Bannon, who averages two points per game, hit a dunk and Hunter stole the ensuing inbounds pass. He made the layup and was fouled, adding the free throw with 8.6 seconds left. Hunter picked off the inbounds pass again, feeding O'Bannon for another slam with four seconds to go.

The Pistons grabbed their largest lead when Hill converted a three-point play 42 seconds into the second half, creating a 63-31 cushion. Washington steadily trimmed the deficit but O'Bannon had another dunk with 1.9 seconds left in the third quarter to give Detroit an 81-60 lead.

"We need to forget about this one and be ready for Sunday," Webber said. "Sometimes stuff like this happens."

Murray scored 10 points in the fourth quarter as the Wizards got back in it. After his jumper made it a 10-point game, Dumars made two free throws, a three-pointer and a jumper to help seal the victory, which snapped Detroit's four-game skid on the road.

Detroit was outrebounded, 39-29, and committed 22 turnovers but shot 55 percent (35-of-64) from the field while limiting Washington to 40 percent (31-of-77).

"We shot better ball in the second half and we didn't give up. That's the one bright spot, not giving up," Howard added.

Rookie God Shammgod chipped in a career-high 12 points for the Wizards, who also committed 22 turnovers and failed to reach 90 points for the fifth time in their last seven games.

"Taking Strickland off of the Wizards is like taking Grant Hill off of our team," Gentry said. "They're hurting without him."
