Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Jerry Stackhouse proved he can still score with the NBA's best and the Seattle SuperSonics proved that all may not be well just because Nate McMillan is on the bench.

Stackhouse recovered from a poor performance by pouring in 41 points, lifting the Detroit Pistons to a 112-99 victory over the SuperSonics, who looked helpless in defending the NBA's third-leading scorer.

Seattle surrendered an NBA season-high 51 points to Antawn Jamison during Sunday's 118-102 victory over Golden State but the Sonics' offense could not bail out their porous defense tonight.

Stackhouse, coming off an 11-point effort in a 91-83 loss at Vancouver on Tuesday, seemed intent to get off to a good start. He had 16 points in the first eight minutes, 25 at the half and when the Pistons needed him down the stretch, he and Dana Barros provided every big shot.

"Tonight we came out and we had energy from the start," said Stackhouse. "The guys did a good job of setting screens and having good ball reversal."

Stackhouse finished 12-of-28 from the floor, 15-of-16 at the line, handed out five assists and grabbed six rebounds in 43 minutes as the Pistons rolled to their fifth straight victory over the Sonics.

"We talked about it before the game that we wanted to make it a track meet," Detroit coach George Irvine said. "We wanted to push it up to Jerry in the open court to give him more time when they double- and triple-team him. Jerry is obviously our best player, but we need contributions from everyone."

"The guy is just a heck of an offensive player," Seattle guard Brent Barry said. "We've got to find some ways to stop some guys. If we are giving up 40 points to Stackhouse, I hate to think what we're going to do against (Lakers forward Kobe Bryant) on Friday."

Barros had 11 of his 17 points in the final period, including a crucial 3-pointer that gave Detroit a five-point lead with 2:28 remaining before Stackhouse hit two from the line and a fancy finger roll to make it 106-97 with 1:50 left.

"I got a chance to get the opportunities and I made the best of it," Barros said. "After 12 years people have to respect me whether I make it or miss it. Jerry was carrying us the whole game. It was a big win for us."

Winners of three of their first four games under new coach McMillan, including back-to-back triumphs over Western Conference powers Portland and the Los Angeles Lakers, Seattle has come back down to earth a bit the past week.

"It's obviously a step backwards," Barry said. "We're not happy with the effort. The coaching staff isn't. You can't start pointing fingers, you know who is calling the shots. It's got to be the guys in the locker room. I don't know what we were doing out there defensively. We weren't into the game. Our focus wasn't there."

Gary Payton scored 29 points and handed out nine assists but received little help from his supporting cast in crunch time as the Sonics failed to reach .500 for the first time since splitting their first two games under fired coach Paul Westphal.

"It looked like we played last night and they rested," McMillan said. "You know whey that happens and why the effort wasn't there and the focus wasn't there. Like I said they have to question themselves."

After Chucky Atkins opened the scoring with a 3-pointer, Stackhouse hit two free throws, a 20-footer, a 19-footer and connected on a 3-pointer from the right corner to give the Pistons a 14-4 lead just over 4 1/2 minutes in.

Another 3-pointer, two more free throws and a 10-footer before taking a seat on the bench with the Pistons holding a 23-14 lead.

"Tonight, Jerry got off to an early start. He hit some 3-pointers, got his confidence and from there on, he could basically do what he wanted on the court," Barry said.

Stackhouse started slower in the second period, committing an early turnover that turned into a layup by Shammond Williams, capping a 14-3 run by the Sonics and giving Seattle a 28-27 lead. A 12-footer with just under eight minutes left in the first half got Stackhouse back in the groove and the 6-6 swingman followed with a slam, a 13-footer and a free throw.

He gave Detroit a 58-57 halftime lead with two more from the line with less than a second left in the second quarter.

"We're not taking pride in defending 1-on-1," McMillan said. "We sent double-teams and the double-teams weren't aggressive. He hit some tough shots, but again, if you don't focus, which we didn't have, things like this will happen."

Two free throws and a pair of jumpers were all that Stackhouse managed in the third quarter but his 19-footer with 1:10 remaining in the period gave Detroit an 82-79 lead entering the final 12 minutes.

Ben Wallace and Mikki Moore dunked on consecutive possessions to give Detroit a nine-point bulge as the Pistons shredded Seattle's interior defense. Stackhouse made two free throws and fed Barros for a 21-footer that made it 96-87 with 6:32 to play. The duo continually buried the Sonics down the stretch.

Atkins scored 14 points and Wallace added 11 and 17 rebounds for the Pistons, who made half of their 80 shots and held a 44-36 rebounding advantage.

Rashard Lewis scored 15 points and Vin Baker had 12 for Seattle, which shot 42.5 percent (37-of-87), including 4-of-17 from 3-point range.
