Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- The Detroit Pistons' reserves wore down the Seattle SuperSonics in the second quarter before Richard Hamilton effectively dealt the knockout blow in the third period. Hamilton scored 25 points on 9-of-13 shooting and Corliss Williamson added 15 off the bench as the Pistons continued their home mastery of the SuperSonics with a 91-78 victory. Williamson, a member of the NBA's top scoring bench, scored eight points in the first half. The reserves powered a 22-6 run in the second quarter and helped open a 54-44 cushion at halftime. "Hamilton was really efficient when we needed him in the third quarter," Pistons coach Rick Carlisle said. "Corliss was very key for us and we basically played through him most of the way. He made good decisions and good shots." Detroit's bench outscored Seattle's reserves, 38-17, marking the 20th time in 22 contests this season that "The Alternatorz" have had the upper hand on their foes. Seattle's Desmond Mason hit a free throw to pull his team within 60-59. But Hamilton scored eight points in an 11-0 run that allowed Detroit to open a 73-62 lead after 36 minutes and improve to 9-2 at The Palace of Auburn Hills. "Our defense fell asleep for some reason tonight," Sonics coach Nate McMillan said. "When they cut to the basket tonight, we turned our backs three times. That was something that we had mentioned at halftime. We have got to see the ball on our cuts." Gary Payton paced the Sonics with 24 points and fellow guard Brent Barry recorded his 800th career 3-pointer. But Seattle slipped to 2-2 on its five-game Eastern swing. Detroit held a one-point lead when backup guard Chucky Atkins hit twice from the arc within a minute, sparking the second-quarter outburst and giving the Pistons a 34-27 advantage with just over eight minutes to play. "Their bench is hard on everybody, not just us," McMillan said. "With the rotation they use, they don't lose anything when they go to the bench. They have solid perimeter people - Jon Barry and Chucky Atkins might be their best 3-point shooters. And Williamson might be their best low-post scorer." Jon Barry - Brent's brother - added five points and fellow reserve Zeljko Rebraca, the second-year center who originally was a 1994 second-round pick of Seattle, put home a pair of layups. Williamson's layup with 4:01 to go capped the run and increased the lead to 50-33. "One of the toughest things to do in the NBA is coming off the bench and finding guys that are excited about doing it," Brent Barry said. "My brother has a passion for playing and every night he is going to give you an effort, whether things are going for him or not." "The Alternatorz" are outscoring their opponents by an average of 37.2-24.4 this season. "Detroit doesn't let up when their second unit comes in," Brent Barry said. "Having to match up with their bench was a tough task for us this evening." Ranked fourth in the NBA in 3-point field-goal percentage at .456, Brent Barry registered his 800th career basket from the arc just 97 seconds into the second half. That helped the Sonics put together a 15-6 burst and close the deficit to 60-59. Brent Barry is fourth on Seattle's all-time list of 3-pointers made with 478, trailing Payton, Dale Ellis and Sam Perkins. Hamilton took over from there. The fourth-year shooting guard, who also collected five rebounds, four assists and three steals in 29 minutes, put home a driving layup and hit a pair from the line to make it 64-59. "I wanted the ball," Hamilton said. "I just tried to be aggressive getting the ball and my shots were falling. You have to keep moving without the ball. A lot of people don't do that. But in today's game, if you keep moving, you're going to get a lot of good opportunities to score." Detroit's scoring leader with 20.8 points per game, Hamilton fed Robinson for a 3-pointer before converting a layup and then sinking a jumper with 1:56 remaining in the third to push the advantage to 71-59.
