Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- Jerry Stackhouse kept Gary Payton and the Seattle SuperSonics reeling.

Stackhouse scored 38 points, including a key 3-pointer with 3:18 to play, as the Detroit Pistons recovered for a 101-92 victory over the SuperSonics.

Having lost three of four on a five-game road trip, Seattle got off to a terrible start, missing its first eight shots. The SuperSonics trailed by 21 points midway through the third period but rallied behind Payton, who had 29 points and eight assists. His basket tied it, 86-86, with 4:18 remaining.

Michael Curry answered with a layup that gave Detroit the lead for good and Stackhouse followed with his 3-pointer for a 91-86 advantage with 3:18 to play. The baskets triggered an 11-2 run that powered the Pistons to the win.

"It's almost impossible to hold a big lead in this league," Stackhouse said. "No matter who's playing, it always seems to come down to the last few minutes. We're still doing a lot of standing around."

After acquiring center Patrick Ewing in the offseason, Seattle was expected to contend for the Western Conference title. But Payton was at a loss for answers following Saturday's 35-point loss at New Jersey, and tonight's setback dropped the SuperSonics to 2-6.

"It's something different every time," Seattle coach Paul Westphal said. "When a game's close, the last three minutes in the NBA. At that point, anybody can win the game. The other team's been making those plays and we haven't. Certainly we weren't planning and hoping on going 1-4 on this trip."

Payton, who played all 48 minutes and shot 11-of-26 from the field, refused to talk to reporters after the game.

"It's been a bad trip for us," Seattle forward Vin Baker said. "Obviously, this isn't what we anticipated. It's going to be a long trip back but we didn't play as well as we wanted to and we've gotta go back to the lab. We feel like we're one of the better teams but we've gotten off to a slow start."

Stackhouse made 13-of-23 shots, including 4-of-7 from the arc, as he eclipsed 35 points for the third time this season. He bounced back from a season-low 17 points at Indiana on Saturday.

Chucky Atkins had 14 points and 11 assists and Curry scored 14 points for the Pistons (3-5), who were playing just their second home game of the season.

"We're learning that teams are going to pick up their defense down the stretch and we can't just stand and wait around for Stack to do everything," Pistons coach George Irvine said. "It's not part of our offense to just stand there and stare at Stack but we seem to do it anyway. Finally, once they caught up, Michael and Chucky hit some shots for us. That won the game."

A three-point play by Stackhouse capped a 7-0 burst and gave the Pistons their largest lead at 66-45 with 7:16 left in the third quarter. But the Sonics fought back within 77-64 entering the final period and continued to rally as the Pistons stagnated.

"Once I get a couple baskets and get things going, everyone in the building knows that we're gonna run plays designed to get me the ball," Stackhouse said. "But that doesn't mean we can stop playing. We have to do some other things to keep people honest."

Payton's three-point play cut the deficit to 80-73 and Rashard Lewis hit a 3-pointer to give Seattle an 82-82 tie with 6:11 to go. But Atkins answered with a jumper and Detroit never trailed thereafter.

Ben Wallace grabbed 12 rebounds for the Pistons, who shot 49 percent (41-of-83).

Vin Baker scored 16 points, Rashard Lewis added 12 and 11 boards and Patrick Ewing pulled down 10 rebounds for the Sonics, who shot under 38 percent (34-of-90) and held a 48-45 edge on the glass.

"We're a better team than everybody that we've played," Ewing said. "Realistically, we should be 8-0. We're just not getting it done. We've got to pick our game up, both offensively and defensively. We let teams score on us too easy."

Both teams started slowly, with Detroit holding a 17-16 lead after one quarter. Stackhouse outscored Payton 13-10 in the second period as the Pistons extended the advantage to 54-43.
