Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Michael Jordan proved his value as a player has diminished. Ben Wallace proved his value goes beyond the boxscore. Jordan had a rough sequence down the stretch and Wallace used a pair of hustle plays to help produce four key points in the fourth quarter, lifting the Detroit Pistons to an 87-82 victory over the Washington Wizards. After the Pistons took control late in the game, Washington still had a chance to tie, facing an 85-82 deficit with 24 seconds left. The Wizards inbounded to Jordan, who dribbled off his foot and watched the ball squirt toward the backcourt. Tyronn Lue saved the ball back to Jordan. But the 39-year-old was stripped on a double-team, and the ball eventually ended up in the hands of Jon Barry, who sank two free throws to seal it. "It wasn't just the last play," Jordan said. "Just never really could get a handle on the ball. We were more or less trying to rush, felt like we were trying to rush. We knew the clock was ticking. Never really got into it. At least I didn't anyway." Jordan finished with 17 points on 7-of-17 shooting. He had just seven points after halftime and finished with one assist. Detroit avoided a third straight loss with an 8-0 run in the fourth quarter that featured stellar work from Wallace, the reigning Defensive Player of Year. Clifford Robinson's jumper started the burst and forged a 71-71 tie with just under seven minutes remaining. Robinson missed a jumper on the next possession, but Wallace went flying out of bounds to save the ball. Wallace was fouled on a layup attempt, and the 39-percent career foul shooter drained a pair to give Detroit the lead for good. "We made some good plays down the stretch defensively and came up with some loose balls," Pistons coach Rick Carlisle said. "We are really pleased to win. Our turnovers were down and we played the game at the pace we needed to." Corliss Williamson drained a pair at the line and Wallace tipped in a miss by Barry with 5:15 remaining to cap the run. Wallace scored 11 points and grabbed 13 rebounds. Richard Hamilton led Detroit with 22 points in his first game at the MCI Center since he was traded from Washington on September 12 in the deal that brought Jerry Stackhouse to the Wizards. "I can't really call it revenge," Hamilton said. "I just say we're one up on them. I know they're over there heartbroken. I've been in that locker room before and I'm just happy to be in this locker room right now." Stackhouse led all scorers with 24 points and Kwame Brown added 10 off the bench for Washington, which has lost three straight. The Wizards scored only 33 points in the second half. Stackhouse and Jordan combined for 23 points in the first half as Washington held a 49-41 lead. But Jordan was just 2-of-7 in the second half and also dribbled the ball off his foot for a shot-clock violation with just under three minutes left. "It's one of those games in which you want to hide your heads under the pillow," Jordan said. "It's just one of those things where you are not at sync, and I just couldn't hang onto the ball." "When we don't move the ball, we stand, and if we do that, we can't win," said Wizards coach Doug Collins, a former coach with Detroit. "That's something that I battle with this team." Robinson finished with 16 points and Williamson added 15 off the bench for Detroit. The Pistons won despite shooting just under 40 percent (29-of-73) and losing the battle of the baords, 44-37. Hamilton came out with a point to prove against his former team and was aggressive throughout. The No. 7 pick in the 1999 draft got to the line and made 10-of-13 to offset 6-of-16 shooting from the floor. "I'm happy here, I definitely feel welcome," he said. "It's good to feel appreciated for what you do. I feel welcome here and that's all a player asks for, is to feel welcome." "Rip did a great job," Collins said. "Rip is a terrific player and we knew that. He averaged 20 points a game for us last year." Washington fell to 1-8 in games in which it scores in the 80s.
