Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- Jerry Stackhouse led six players in double figures with 23 points as the Detroit Pistons withstood a furious second-half rally to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers, 115-107.

Cleveland never led, trailed 57-40 at halftime and by 20 points several times in the third quarter before rallying behind Ricky Davis to climb within 83-77 entering the fourth quarter. Davis scored 12 points in the third period.

Andre Miller's layup with 10:47 remaining got Cleveland within 84-83, but Corliss Williamson and Damon Jones each hit a pair of free throws to rebuild the lead to five.

After Zydrunas Ilgauskas sank 1-of-2 free throws to make it 88-86 with 8:21 left, the Pistons went on a 12-0 run capped by a fast-break layup by Jones with 5:31 left. The Cavaliers got no closer than eight points thereafter.

"We weren't playing well offensively and we were struggling on defense, so in the second half I wanted a change and do something different to get us into the game," Cleveland coach John Lucas said. "We started a different group in the second half and it took a lot of energy to get back to two points."

Williamson scored 17 points and Clifford Robinson, Jon Barry and rookie Zeljko Rebraca added 14 points apiece for Detroit, which won for the fifth time in six games.

"I don't care who you are playing, it's a tough game mentally for us and we made it a little harder than we had to," Barry said. "We let the Cavs back in it but we did what it took at the end."

Davis had season highs of 28 points and nine assists to pace the Cavs, who lost for the 14th time in 15 games.

"We have to find a way to stay in the game from the beginning," Davis said.

Cleveland's Lamond Murray, who had not played since suffering a broken nose against the Los Angeles Clippers on January 18, made 10-of-15 shots and tallied 24 points despite wearing a facial mask.

"It was a good night the first time back," Murray said. "I was just trying to be aggressive and to get good minutes when I was out there. A mask was no problem. I've already played with one and I know how it feels on my face. They cut it just right and I could see very well."

Andre Miller scored 20 points, but Cleveland's other starters combined for just 11 points. The Cavs' reserves scored 76.

Detroit also had solid production from its bench. Williamson, Barry, Jones and Rebraca combined for 57 points, just one less than the starting five.

"Those guys played really well," Pistons coach Rick Carlisle said. "My feeling coming into the game, I was going to go to those guys earlier than normal because of the stretch that we're in -- four games in five nights. Boy, did they respond in the second quarter."

In the fourth quarter, the Pistons made 19-of-23 free throws while the Cavs made just 6-of-8.

"We've had the tendency sometimes to settle for jump shots, and it's always nice to see us attack the basket and try to establish that we're going to play inside-out," Robinson said.

Overall, Cleveland made 23-of-30 free throws while Detroit sank 42-of-51.

"It's hard to overcome 51 free throws and they made 19 foul shots in the fourth quarter," Lucas said. "We seemed to attack the rim, too, but for some reason we don't seem to get the calls."

"When the other team shoots 51 free throws, that's the game -- automatically, whether we play well in the first half or not," Davis said.
