Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- The Detroit Pistons had a shot in the fourth quarter, but Jerry Stackhouse missed every one.

Stackhouse, the NBA's second-leading scorer, missed all nine shots plus two crucial free throws in the final period as the Pistons squandered several chances in a 100-96 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.

Overall, Stackhouse made just 6-of-23 shots and scored 16 points, his lowest total since he had 12 against Boston on January 29. The All-Star guard averages 29.9 points per game.

Asked if he ran out of gas in the fourth quarter, Stackhouse said, "No, it was gone sooner than that. There was nothing left."

"I just tried to stay in front of him," Bucks guard Ray Allen said. "He's a guy that gets to the free-throw line a lot. I didn't want him to get to the line and I didn't want him to shoot any easy shots. So I just tried to stay in front of him."

With the Pistons trailing, 92-90, Stackhouse missed a 3-pointer with 2:45 remaining. They still were within striking distance at 95-92 when Stackhouse -- an 82 percent foul shooter -- missed two free throws with 1:29 remaining.

Stackhouse had another chance to tie it on the next possession but dribbled into the left corner and forced a 3-pointer that missed badly with 49 seconds left.

"I really believed that some of the guys just ran out of gas," said Pistons coach George Irvine, whose team was playing its fourth game in five nights. "Some of our guys coming down the stretch were really, really exhausted."

Jason Caffey's follow dunk gave Milwaukee a 97-92 lead with 24 seconds left and the Bucks held on for their third win in four games.

Glenn Robinson scored 24 points for Milwaukee, which took the season series, 3-1.

Ben Wallace scored a season-high 18 points, pulled down 21 rebounds and blocked four shots for the Pistons, who have lost three of their last four games and are slipping out of range in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

"We are not going to blame this one on fatigue," Wallace said. "We had a chance at the end and we missed some shots and they made their shots. I think everyone played solid and hard on defense."

Joe Smith collected 16 points and eight rebounds and Corliss Williamson had 15 and eight for Detroit, which shot just 21 percent (6-of-28) in the fourth quarter.

"We shot the ball terrible in the fourth quarter," Irvine said. "We had some looks and couldn't get the ball to go down. We tried to do the right things. The effort was great."

Stackhouse's effectiveness was limited by both Detroit's offense and Milwaukee's defense.

"This really wasn't my kind of game," he said. "We played Ben, Corliss and Joe a lot. That clogs up the inside, so I ended up taking a lot of outside shots and not getting to the line. I just didn't have a jumper tonight."

"We have kind of a Vince Carter, Jerry Stackhouse, Kobe Bryant defense rule," Bucks coach George Karl said. "We want them to take as many twos as possible, keep them away from the rim as much as possible and keep them off the free-throw line. Unless he gets in one of those explosive modes, we've gone away from double-teaming him like we did last year, probably moreso than we did this year."

After Caffey's dunk, Williamson scored inside and was fouled by Sam Cassell, who drew his sixth foul with 15 seconds left. But Cassell inexplicably remained on the floor as the Pistons protested.

Williamson missed the free throw, but Smith rebounded and passed to Chucky Atkins, who missed a wide-open 3-pointer that could have tied it. Wallace rebounded and was fouled with 9.2 seconds to go and Cassell finally departed.

"The referees, they get so unnerved," Allen said. "I think when Sam was saying he was still in the game, (referee) Gary Benson said he doesn't care at that point.

"We had a good crew tonight. Those are very respected referees. But when the game takes a toll where there's tension on both sides, (Benson) was like, `You're gonna do it on my terms right now and (Cassell) left when he said he could leave.'"

Wallace, a 32 percent foul shooter, missed both and Robinson got the rebound. He made 1-of-2 free throws to seal it with 8.1 seconds to play.

"We're just trying to figure out a way to win ballgames," said Robinson. "Tonight it took us four quarters to finally break through and get something going for us. We couldn't rebound any missed shots. We were making them miss, but they were coming up with the rebounds and laying them back in. It almost caused us to lose the ballgame."

Cassell returned from a one-game absence due to a hip injury and scored 21 points. Caffey added 17 and Allen 15 for Milwaukee, which shot 46 percent (37-of-81) and made 23-of-30 free throws.

Atkins scored 13 points for the Pistons, who shot 41.5 percent (39-of-94) and held a 51-42 rebounding edge.

The Bucks started slowly and trailed 63-55 at halftime. Cassell scored eight points in the third quarter to cut the deficit to 79-77 entering the final period and Robinson's turnaround jumper with 9:07 to go gave Milwaukee the lead for good at 84-83.

"A lot of times we don't have urgency out there," Allen said. "Then when we realize our backs are against the wall, we come out and do what we need to do. Half the time we coast and we think that it's going to be OK and that we're gonna win based on our talent."
