Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Grant Hill gave the Detroit Pistons the lead and Jerry Stackhouse made sure they kept it.

Hill scored nine of his 31 points in a decisive fourth-quarter burst and Stackhouse made two clutch free throws and a jumper in the final 33 seconds as the Pistons rallied for a 116-112 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

"It shows character and it's a great win on the road to come back like we did," said Hill, who also had a season-high 12 assists. "We have to keep working on our rotation, on our traps and being aggressive every night."

Hill scored at least 30 points for the fourth time in the last five games. He took over at the outset of the final period, turning a four-point deficit into a 98-91 lead with 9:34 to go.

Stackhouse scored 26 points, reaching at least 20 for the third straight game. He had 10 points in the third quarter, when the Pistons began their comeback, but saved his best for last.

The Bucks pecked away and closed the deficit to 112-110 with 1:35 to play on a hook by Glenn Robinson, who scored 30 points. Milwaukee stopped Detroit and had a chance to tie but Sam Cassell had his shot blocked by Hill.

Stackhouse corraled the loose ball and was fouled. He made both free throws for a four-point lead with 33 seconds remaining. Robinson responded with a jumper, but as the shot clock expired, the 6-5 Stackhouse made a tough 15-footer from the baseline over 6-9 Tim Thomas to seal the win with 4.2 seconds left.

"We were a different team out there in the fourth (quarter)," Hill said. "It's good to get a win like this on the road and in a hostile environment."

"We had good defensive balance on the last possession but we didn't come down on Stackhouse," Milwaukee coach George Karl said.

Lindsey Hunter scored 16 points and shut down Bucks guard Ray Allen in the second half. Allen scored 14 points in the first half but only seven after the break.

"The key was Lindsey Hunter did a great job on Ray Allen defensively in the second half," Pistons coach Alvin Gentry said. "He gave us all the energy we needed and got us back to single digits. Then we felt we had a chance to do something."

Scott Williams had a season-high 17 points and nine rebounds and Sam Cassell added 17 points and 12 assists for the Bucks, who have lost three of their last four games, blowing second-half leads in all of them.

"This loss hurts," Karl said. "It's similar to three or four other games that we've given away. A lot of it has been us instead of them. We're not finishing games or quarters off. We get a lead and play with it. It's an immaturity that a lot of NBA teams have. Sometimes it catches you."

Allen scored eight points in the first quarter as Milwaukee bolted to a 31-22 lead. Robinson, who signed a one-year, $12 million contract extension on Monday, scored nine points in the second quarter as the Bucks built the lead to 62-46.

With Hunter slowing down Allen and Stackhouse finding his shot, the Pistons scored 38 points in the third quarter and closed to 88-84 entering the final period.

"We just shot the ball really well in the third period," Hill said. "We simply did not play well in the first half."

Hill scored half the points in an 18-5 burst that gave Detroit the lead for good, and a layup by John Crotty capped it at 98-91 with 8:21 left.

Christian Laettner and Terry Mills scored 12 points apiece and Jerome Williams added 10 and 10 rebounds for the Pistons, who shot 53 percent (39-of-74) from the field, including 9-of-17 from 3-point range.

The Bucks shot 52 percent (49-of-95) and held a 48-23 advantage on the glass but took only 15 free throws, making 11. Detroit made 29-of-34 free throws.
