Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- Antonio McDyess made sure the Detroit Pistons would get more than a token contribution from their bench. McDyess scored 19 points and was dominant late as the Pistons moved closer to securing the second seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs with a 105-93 triumph over the Washington Wizards. "They need me to come off the bench and score some points," McDyess said. "This is the most important stretch of the season for us, these last (eight) games. We want to get to where we need to be for the playoffs." Ben Wallace chipped in 21 points and 18 rebounds and Chauncey Billups added 19 points for the Pistons, whose starters scored all but 11 of their points in a 113-103 win over Toronto on Sunday. Wallace set the tone early for Detroit as he scored 13 points in the first quarter, including his first 3-pointer of the season as the shot clock was running down, helping the Pistons take a 29-22 advantage. "With one second left (on the shot clock), that's an easy shot to take," Wallace said. "Of course, it usually doesn't go in." Wallace was one short of his season high in both points and rebounds. He has scored in double figures in his last five games. "The guys are doing a great job of getting me the ball where I can do something with it, instead of just taking an emergency shot," Wallace said. "Everyone is telling me to shoot the ball, so they must know something." Wallace's teammates are happy to see him taking more shots. "Ben's been doing that the last three or four games," McDyess said. "He's our go-to guy in the first period. When he's making those shots early, he has confidence to keep shooting. "The last couple of games, he's really been solid down low, making great moves and not being hesitant like he usually is," Detroit guard Lindsey Hunter said. "We get on him all the time. We say, 'For as hard as you work, you deserve to get some post-ups.' Finally, he's not hesitating and doing what he can do." The Central Division-leading Pistons (47-27) have a five-game lead over surprising Chicago (42-32) with eight games left. Detroit, which beat Washington for the 10th straight time, held a 68-46 lead after a jumper by Tayshaun Prince with 8:53 left in the third quarter. But the Wizards scored the next 13 points and pulled within 72-66 before McDyess made a basket at the buzzer to give the Pistons an eight-point cushion entering the fourth quarter. McDyess pushed the lead to 83-68 with a jump shot with 8:58 to play, then opened a 95-78 advantage with another jumper with 5:39 left. "I thought we played in spots as good as we can play, but then we started to turn the ball over in the third quarter," Pistons coach Larry Brown said. "Fortunately, we came out in the beginning of the fourth and did what we had to do. Overall, I was really pleased. We had some great ball movement." Washington coach Eddie Jordan had a simple explanation for Detroit's success against his team, which was outrebounded, 47-31. "First of all, we played a team that was better than we are," Jordan said. "Give my guys credit. They played hard. We got some stops but we just couldn't rebound the ball. They moved the ball very well offensively. They are just the better team. We got beat by a better team." Larry Hughes scored 28 points and Gilbert Arenas added 19 for the Wizards (41-33), who slipped one game behind Chicago for fourth place in the East. "It's going to take us three games to get back into fourth place because they've got the tiebreaker," Arenas said. "This stretch since the All-Star break has been like the playoffs for us. We have a young team and we're getting hammered. Eventually, we're going to get sick of it and start to fight back." Wizards forward Antawn Jamison, who returned to action Tuesday after missing three weeks with tendinitis in his right knee, didn't dress for Wednesday's contest, and Jordan said that he didn't expect that the All-Star would play Friday at Indiana.
