Game Story

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- Jerry Stackhouse used to be compared to Michael Jordan. For one night in "The House That Mike Built," he was better than Jordan himself.

Stackhouse scored a career-high 57 points -- the most ever in the United Center -- as the Detroit Pistons trounced the Chicago Bulls, 110-83.

"Thats the most points I've ever scored," Stackhouse said, who is the NBA's second-leading scorer behind former teammate Allen Iverson. "This is the highest level of basketball that you can play and I can say that I did this. It is definitely something I will remember for a long time. And I really think I can do it again."

Jordan did most of his prolific scoring in Chicago Stadium prior to his first retirement and never scored more than 55 points in the United Center, which opened in 1994.

In addition to a building record, Stackhouse set a Pistons club mark, surpassing Kelly Tripucka, who had 56 vs. the Bulls on January 29, 1983.

Stackhouse made 21-of-36 shots, including four 3-pointers, and 11-of-13 from the line. His effort was the NBA season high and shattered his previous best of 46 was set against the Los Angeles Lakers on March 15.

"That's the most points I've ever scored in any game," he said. "I think maybe I scored 55 or 56 in an AAU game in the summertime when I was 16 or 17, but to be able to do at this level is the best."

Stackhouse scored the first three points of the fourth quarter to run the tally to 50. He committed an offensive foul and missed an 18-footer before he headed to the bench with Detroit leading 92-76 and 9:29 to go.

Once the team realize something special was near, Stackhouse was re-inserted with 6:15 left. The Pistons had scored just two points in his absence as their lead was cut to 94-81.

Rookie Mateen Cleaves found Stackhouse for a short jumper, then dished to him on the wing for the 18-footer for the 57th point. He led the 16-1 surge that ended the game for Detroit.

"I was happy Mateen wanted to help get him the ball to get the record," said Detroit coach George Irvine, who was on the bench when Denver's David Thompson scored 73 against Detroit on April 9, 1978. "And this was still a great performance.

"The guy is something special, He got started early and I was happy to see him get the record. We looked at the clock and said, `Just a few seconds left,' and he didn't really have the legs, but he was great."

Stackhouse followed Jordan at North Carolina, where the unfair comparisons began. He was dressed down by Jordan for calling the NBA "easy" in his rookie season with Philadelphia and was traded to Detroit in 1997, where he has climbed from reserve to All-Star.

"It's the NBA," Stackhouse said. "But Ron Artest told me before the game that coach Floyd (Chicago's Tim Floyd) didn't really respect my game and wasn't going to double-team me. Maybe next time."

The United Center's previous regular-season mark was 53 by Jordan against Detroit on March 7, 1996. Jordan scored 55 vs. Washington in a 1997 playoff game.

Chucky Atkins scored 19 points and Corliss Williamson added 12 for the Pistons, who shot 49 percent (41-of-83).

Stackhouse tied a franchise record with 24 first-quarter points and set a United Center record for points in a quarter. Fans at the arena got caught up in the history and began cheering for the competition.

"If our fans were enjoying it, based on everything else they saw from our club that they paid to come watch in the first three quarters, then so be it," Floyd said. "I do have a problem, not from their end, from our end with that guy going to the rim everytime he wanted. I have a hell of a problem with that."

"It's kind of a bittersweet feeling," Brand said. "We definitely want the fans to come out, but you don't want them to get excited for the other team. It's like your girlfriend rooting for the other guy on the other team. It hurt but he really just killed us out there."
