Game Story

MEMPHIS, Tennessee (Ticker) -- Chauncey Billups could not buy a basket in the first quarter. He more than made up for it in the final three. Billups scored a season-high 33 points and added seven rebounds and five assists as the Detroit Pistons rallied from an early double-digit deficit to beat the Memphis Grizzlies, 99-92. Tayshaun Prince added 16 points and Richard Hamilton 15 for the Pistons, who snapped the Grizzlies' season-high three-game winning streak. Detroit fell behind, 25-15, late in the first quarter but pulled within 52-49 at the break behind eight second-quarter points from Billups, who added 14 in the third quarter. Billups opened a 13-0 run with a 3-pointer that gave Detroit the lead for good, 58-55, with 8:22 left in the period, then capped it with a layup with 5:39 remaining. He had 10 points during the burst. "In the first quarter I came out and missed a few easy looks, got two quick fouls and I knew I had to be a little more aggressive and open up a few more opportunities," Billups said. "And I did, once I started going to the rack." "He's 11-for-21, he's in the paint," Memphis coach Hubie Brown said. "He got to the line eight times tonight. So you can see the bonus your team has when your point guard is in the paint. ... Billups, he was the difference tonight." Memphis trailed by 10 points entering the fourth quarter before climbing within 86-83 on a tip-in by Shane Battier with 4 1/2 minutes left. But Billups, who had 11 points in the fourth quarter, countered with a 3-pointer on Detroit's next possession, and Memphis got no closer than five points down the stretch. "(We had) great defense in the fourth quarter," said Prince, whose fast-break dunk off a steal by Billups made it 97-90 with 45 seconds left. "We had some 3-on-1s, 4-on-1s, fast breaks, and were able to make some great plays in the stretch." Lorenzen Wright and Mike Miller scored 18 points apiece for Memphis, which has lost five in a row to Detroit. Pau Gasol added 13 points and 12 rebounds but shot just 5-of-15 for Memphis, which shot just 26 percent from the arc (5-of-19). The Pistons shot 71 percent from 3-point range (5-of-7), with Billups making four of his five attempts. "We missed a lot of shots, open shots (in the second half)," Gasol said. "They made their shots, they made a good run,"
