Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- The Detroit Pistons have not done this since the days of the "Bad Boys."

Chucky Atkins sparked second-half comeback as the surprising Pistons won in Utah for the first time in nearly 13 years with a 94-87 victory over the Jazz.

The Pistons had lost their last 11 visits to Utah since a 108-104 victory on March 29, 1989. In that season, the Pistons won the first of consecutive NBA titles and were the toughest team in the league, carrying the nickname "Bad Boys."

"This is a hard place to win, there's no doubt about that," Pistons coach Rick Carlisle said. "I've been fortunate to win a couple of other times in here and you always feel like you've won a championship series because of the caliber of the competition and building is very loud."

On Tuesday, these Pistons showed some toughness as they erased a 12-point deficit early in the third quarter en route to their first win in 10 tries at the Delta Center. The first two losses in the streak came at the old Salt Palace.

Detroit had lost five straight overall to Utah, including a 100-97 defeat Friday. The Jazz won that contest despite playing without Karl Malone, who was sidelined with the flu.

"We came in here with one thing in mind that was payback," Atkins said. "We thought we should have beat them on our home court last week and they came away with a victory."

Atkins fueled the rally, scoring 12 of his 20 points in the third quarter, when Detroit outscored the Jazz, 30-17, to take a three-point lead entering the final period.

Clifford Robinson and Jerry Stackhouse each added 20 points for the Pistons, who moved three games ahead of second-place Milwaukee in the Central Division. Detroit (39-27) also pulled within 2 1/2 games of New Jersey for the Eastern Conference's top record while improving to 3-0 on a five-game road trip.

Malone netted 22 points to lead Utah, which leads the Los Angeles Clippers by 1 1/2 games for the final Western Conference playoff spot.

Malone played 41 minutes, moving past Elvin Hayes into second place on the all-time minutes played list with 50,033.

After struggling in the third quarter, the Jazz opened the final period on an 11-5 run, capped by a pair of foul shots from John Stockton to take a 72-69 lead with 7:13 remaining. Stockton finished with 20 points and seven rebounds.

Tied at 74-74, the Pistons took the lead for good on consecutive baskets by Williamson, who had eight points in the fourth quarter. The baskets triggered a 13-3 run that ended with two foul shots by Jerry Stackhouse for an 87-77 bulge with 2:04 to play.

The Jazz got no closer than seven points rest of way as they lost for the third time in five home games this month. Utah was sloppy, committing 18 turnovers and making just 1-of-11 shots from 3-point range.

"The turnovers killed us, there is no question about that," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "We told them at halftime, I'd just as soon walk the ball up the floor, if we can't run the floor properly. It looked like mashed potatoes out there the way we were trying to play."

In the opening half, the Jazz led by as many as 13 points and settled for a 44-34 advantage at the break. Malone had 11 points and Donyell Marshall nine of his 13 in the half.

Detroit shot just 33 percent (14-of-43) in the first half but came alive after intermission.

In the third quarter, the Pistons made 10-of-15 shots from the floor, inlcluding five 3-pointers. Atkins sank two shots from beyond the arc but the last by Robinson as time expired in the period, gave Detroit a 64-61 lead.

Barry added 10 points off the bench for the Pistons, who shot 44 percent (32-of-73) overall.

"They had us right where they wanted us pretty much after the start of the second half," Sloan said. "We just didn't have any energy to run the floor."
