Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- In what is becoming a repetitive scene for the Detroit Pistons, Chauncey Billups had the ball in his hands at the end of the game. This time, he came up short twice. Carlos Boozer collected 21 points and 15 rebounds and Zydrunas Ilgauskas added 15 and nine as the Cleveland Cavaliers held on for their fifth win in six games, 85-82 over the Pistons. With the Pistons trailing by two points, Billups' leaning jumper bounced off the front of the rim with three seconds left. After Dasagna Diop split two free throws, a 3-pointer by Billups fell well short of the rim at the buzzer. On January 23 at Minnesota, Billups had a game-winning shot negated by a controversial charging call. On Saturday, he made two free throws in the final second for a win over Memphis. "There was some contact, but I initiated it," Billups said of leaner. "I was just trying to get something." Detroit had a five-game home winning streak against Cleveland snapped, losing to the Cavaliers at The Palace of Auburn Hills for the first time since February 25, 2001. The Pistons had won four in a row overall. "(This win) is right up there," Cleveland coach Paul Silas said. "We beat a really good team on the road. It'a a great win for us, a very significant step." After rebounding an airball by rookie LeBron James, Boozer was fouled and made two free throws to snap an 82-82 tie with 8.9 seconds to play. "I think Carlos is an All-Star," James said. "He's the best forward in the conference and one of the best in the league. All I know is that I want him as my power forward until I retire." Cleveland took advantage of Detroit's cold shooting late in the game. The Pistons missed 13 consecutive shots bridging the final two quarters, a span of nearly 8 1/2 minutes. That helped the Cavaliers turn a five-point deficit into a 77-71 lead. "It's tough to win a game when you only score 11 points in the fourth quarter," Detroit guard Richard Hamilton said. "We're going to have to look at the films and figure out what happened down the stretch." Detroit had its problems on the defensive end at the outset, matching a season high by allowing 32 points in the first quarter. The Pistons have given up at least 27 points in the opening period in five of the last six games. "We've had bad (first quarters) all year," Detroit coach Larry Brown said. "Maybe I don't give good enough pregame talks. I don't know." On the day he was snubbed for the Eastern Conference All-Star team, James scored 12 points on 5-of-19 shooting. "I can't understand why he didn't make it," Silas said. "Maybe it was because of our record. He's going to make a lot of All-Star Games before he's done and this will keep him humble. I'm old school and I always like kids to pay their dues and earn what they get. But it is what it is, he earned it." "I'm not disappointed," James said. "I just think I played well enough to be on that team and by me not making it just tells me I've got to work harder." Billups led the Pistons with 19 points and Hamilton scored 18. Both were left off the Eastern Conference roster. "Myself and Rip, if we're going to be considered the best backcourt in the Eastern Conference, maybe in the league, and we're winning, how can one of us not be represented in the All-Star Game?" Billups asked. All-Star starter Ben Wallace had 17 rebounds and five points. Detroit center Mehmet Okur missed the game due to back spasms and is listed as day-to-day.
