GAME RECAP

Jerry Stackhouse made a successful return to Philadelphia with 17 points and a key block in the final seconds as the Detroit Pistons erased a 21-point deficit and rallied for a 96-92 victory over the 76ers, who have lost six straight games.

Grant Hill had 22 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists and Brian Williams and Lindsey Hunter added 17 points apiece for the Pistons, who trailed 55-34 early in the third quarter but scored 40 points in the final period to sweep the home-and-home series, which began Saturday in Detroit.

"That's been the story for us all season long," Pistons coach Doug Collins said. "We dig huge holes and then try to climb out of them. We get close, plays go against us toward the end of the game.

Stackhouse was traded by Philadelphia in a four-player deal on Thursday and scored 20 points in a 115-78 rout of the 76ers on Saturday. He received a warm greeting from the CoreStates Center crowd during pregame introductions but did hear some boos throughout the game.

"It was hard," Stackhouse said. "It's not like I don't know those guys. I've been in a lot of situations with those guys over the years. We had our ups and our downs. It was a bit different out there tonight, but I'm happy with the win.

"It's an ideal situation," he added. "You get to go out and show them that they made a mistake. Regardless of the circumstances that surrounded the trade, I think they realize that now. I feel that I can be an asset to whatever team I am on. They chose to change that and now it's their loss."

Stackhouse was dealt primarily because of his incompatibility with fellow guard Allen Iverson. But the 1997 Rookie of the Year had just seven points on 2-of-17 shooting and has struggled since the trade, managing just 31 points on 26 percent shooting (11-of-42) in three games.

"When I play bad like I played, I don't know if it rubs off on anyone else," Iverson said. "But it had a big effect on how we do as a team. As good as we played in some spurts in this game, just by my off night, and not just in my shooting, but in my court awareness, it hurt us. I just think I'm out there thinking too much, instead of relaxing, playing my game."

"I thought he did a lot of good things in terms of trying to run our offense," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "But he's getting wrapped up in this outside jump-shooting and it hurts. It hurts his game, it hurts everybody's game. I don't think it's in his best interest and I've been trying to tell him that over and over again. That was the first thing I tried to get him and Jerry to realize when I first got here."

A three-point play by rookie Tim Thomas, who had a season-high 18 points, gave the Sixers a 91-85 lead with 2:47 to play. But that was Philadelphia's last basket.

With the shot clock running down, Stackhouse made a 30-footer over Iverson to cut the deficit in half with 2:31 left. Hill and Derrick Coleman traded free throws before a tip-in by Grant Long pulled the Pistons within 92-91 with 1:29 to go.

Coleman missed a jumper and Hill found Williams for a layup and three-point play for a 94-92 lead with 52 seconds to play. Six seconds later, Hill fouled out when he hacked Iverson, who missed two free throws.

I had a chance to tie the game up," Iverson said. "They gave me the ball to make something happen, I had the chance, and I blew it."

Coleman missed a three-pointer with 15 seconds left, but the Sixers grabbed the rebound and called time. But Stackhouse blocked Thomas' jumper with six seconds left and Joe Dumars made two foul shots to seal it.

"It was a play we needed because if we didn't, we go into overtime," Stackhouse said. "With Hill having fouled out, a couple of other guys in foul trouble, we were going to be shorthanded going into the overtime."

"We gave up 40 points in the fourth quarter," Brown said. "They probably scored every time down. You can talk about missing free throws and shots at the end of the game, but we didn't get a stop. The defense was horrible. We had some bad offensive possessions."

Dumars added 11 points for the Pistons, who shot 45 percent (28-of-62) from the field and held a 46-36 rebounding edge. Detroit committed 20 turnovers while forcing just 11.

Coleman scored 23 points and Jim Jackson added 20 for the Sixers, who shot under 39 percent (29-of-75), including 2-of-11 from three-point range. Iverson had nine assists but missed 3-of-7 free throws.

Thomas scored 10 points and Jackson six as Philadelphia grabbed a 27-21 lead after one quarter. Detroit missed its last six shots of the second period and trailed 46-32 at halftime, and a three-pointer by Coleman capped a 9-2 burst that began the third quarter and gave the Sixers their largest lead with 9:21 left.

Coleman scored nine points in the period, which ended with the Sixers holding a 71-56 advantage. Hill scored five points in a 9-1 burst to open the fourth quarter, but Philadelphia still held an 83-74 lead after Coleman's jumper with 6:34 remaining.

A three-pointer by Hunter capped a 10-4 spurt that closed the deficit to 87-84 with 4:24 to go.

"The key for us was getting Brian Williams locked in, both offensively and defensively," Collins said. "It made us better down the stretch and enabled us to go to a smaller lineup. I was grasping out there for anything that worked tonight. But our guys hung in there."
