Game Story

DENVER (Ticker) -- Corliss Williamson and Jerry Stackhouse combined for 16 points down the stretch as the Detroit Pistons blew a double-digit fourth-quarter lead but bounced back to defeat the Denver Nuggets, 98-91.

After Zeljko Rebaraca scored the first basket of the fourth quarter to give the Pistons an 80-69 advantage, the Nuggets stormed back behind 12 points by Voshon Lenard to get within 82-81, and Donnell Harvey scored on a soaring dunk in the lane to give Denver its only lead, 83-82, with 6:09 remaining.

But Williamson hit a pair of free throws 15 seconds later to reclaim the lead, and Stackhouse hit a 3-pointer and a jumper to stretch the advantage to six with 4:43 left. Denver got no closer than four points thereafter.

"Corliss was big down the stretch because he was sort of able to control the clock and get good shots and convert," Pistons coach Rick Carlisle said. "That was a big key in us being able to close the game out.“

"They chose not to double me, I just tried to take advantage of it," Williamson said. "I guess they felt like I was going to start missing.“

Stackhouse had 24 points and 11 assists for Detroit, which has won 11 of its last 13 road contests. Chucky Atkins, Clifford Robinson and Williams added 16 points apiece and Ben Wallace chipped in 11 and 15 rebounds for the Pistons, who improved to 2-0 on their five-game road trip.

"It was a good win," Stackhouse said. "We made it a little bit harder than it needed to be. (But) that’s how we’ve been doing it all year."

Lenard and Juwan Howard tallied 18 points apiece for the Nuggets, who dropped their fifth straight contest.

Denver outshot Detroit, but the Pistons converted five 3-pointers while the Nuggets made none. It was the second straight game that Denver failed to hit a 3-pointer after making at least one in its previous 255 contests.

"We did close the game out," Carlisle said. "It was not easy, obviously. They were in a shot-making groove tonight and at times our defense was very good and at other times we just let them get into too much of a groove. Once again, we allow a team to shoot 50 percent and score 91 points but we did force 18 turnovers and that was the difference."

The Pistons turned 18 Nuggets turnovers into 23 points, while Denver converted seven Detroit turnovers into just 13 points.

"They were a team that was really executing tonight, they could do whatever they wanted," Nuggets coach Mike Evans said. "Our problem was too many turnovers. The first quarter was a disaster, giving up 34 points. That team is really focused, they are a very unselfish team and they get the ball to the open guy. We are not focused, too many shot-clock violations or close to it."

Detroit jumped out to a 34-18 lead after one period and took a 55-46 edge into halftime.

"We dug ourselves in a hole in the first quarter," Howard said. "The reserves brought us back with their energy, guys like Harvey, (Ryan) Bowen, Voshon, and (Mengke) Beteer. (But) we’ve got to find ways to correct our slow starts. I think it’s our defense."
