Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- Faced with the prospect of a fourth straight loss, the Detroit Pistons turned to their big men. Antonio McDyess scored 20 points, Ben Wallace grabbed 16 rebounds and Rasheed Wallace hit a big jumper down the stretch to lift the Pistons to a 92-88 victory over the Golden State Warriors. The trio dominated inside, combining for 33 of Detroit's 52 rebounds, matching the Warriors' total. The Pistons grabbed 19 rebounds on the offensive end, 16 from McDyess and the Wallaces. "It's just hard work," McDyess said. "Ben gives us the energy and we just feed off of him. It wasn't the prettiest win, but some are like that." Injuries limited McDyess to only 52 games in the last three seasons, but he is healthy again and has been a force off the bench for Detroit since signing with the club as a free agent during the offseason. "Everybody else is just starting to recognize that he's been doing that all season for us," Ben Wallace said. "He's coming in and getting down on the blocks, and you know he can score for us. He can crash the boards, get offensive rebounds and defend." McDyess said that the Pistons are a perfect fit for him. "When the coach has confidence in you, your teammates will have confidence in you," McDyess said. "Then you get your minutes and everything's a lot easier." McDyess scored eight points in the second quarter, helping Detroit claim a 39-28 lead midway through the period. Golden State immediately responded with a 12-1 run and the game was tight thereafter. After Warriors guard Baron Davis buried a 3-pointer with 1:47 left to tie it at 88-88, the teams traded empty possessions. Rasheed Wallace, who had 13 points and nine boards, gave the Pistons the lead for good with a 17-footer from the baseline with 44 seconds remaining. Golden State's Jason Richardson had a chance to tie it but missed both free throws, and Tayshaun Prince made him pay on the other end, blowing by him for a runner and a 92-88 edge with 18 seconds to go. Richardson fired an airball on a 3-pointer and Ben Wallace blocked Mike Dunleavy Jr.'s try from long range with just under 10 seconds left, ending the Warriors' last chance. "We didn't make the plays down the stretch and the Pistons did," said Golden State forward Troy Murphy, who scored 14 points. "When we start making those plays, like the big jumper Rasheed hit from the corner, we'll be winning these close games." "It was a tough way to lose," Richardson said. "Both teams played very tough all game. They play great team basketball, and that's the bottom line. The team that plays well together goes far together, and they've definitely shown that. We played well against some great players and we did a good job of keeping it close. We just couldn't finish." Prince scored 20 points for Detroit, which had lost three in a row after an eight-game winning streak. Pistons coach Larry Brown had praise for all of his big men, especially McDyess and Ben Wallace. "(McDyess) is like that every game. It's amazing," Brown said. "If you put him in for 24 minutes, he's going to get eight or nine rebounds and double-digit points. I don't know what we would do without him. He gives us a low-post presence like Corliss (Williamson) and Memo (Okur) did last year. I've got to find a way to play him a little more. "This was a Ben Wallace-type game. He was diving to the floor. He was getting his hands on the ball, and we got a lot of extra possessions. When you're shooting 38 percent like we are, that's huge." Davis had his best effort since being acquired by the Warriors in a three-player deal with New Orleans on February 24. He had 21 points and four assists in 32 minutes off the bench. "That was his best game scoring-wise since coming here," Warriors coach Mike Montgomery said. "He gave us a big lift tonight with his scoring." Golden State fell to 3-3 on its eight-game road trip, but Montgomery wasn't satisfied with just being close. "We can't be content with a close loss anymore," he said. "There are enough little things that we didn't do that could have won the game for us. We could have been a little more attentive on the boards in terms of long rebounds. I think we're playing well enough where we can win games like this." The Warriors have lost 10 straight and 20 of their last 24 in Detroit.
