GAME RECAP

Grant Hill had 35 points and Joe Dumars scored all of his 18 in the second half as the Detroit Pistons reached the .500 mark for the first time since the opening week of the season with a 94-76 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers.

Hill scored 13 points in the second quarter when the Pistons took the lead for good. His driving layup capped the pivotal 13-3 run late in the period, giving Detroit a 43-33 lead. That burst helped the Pistons (20-20) move to the break-even mark for the first time since they were 2-2 on November 5th.

"We have been knocking on the door since we were 2-2," Pistons coach Doug Collins said.

"This was a very important game for us," Hill added. "It got us back to .500."

Dumars recovered from an 0-for-5 shooting effort in the first half to score nine points in each of the final two quarters. His three-pointer highlighted a 9-0 spurt down the stretch that built an insurmountable 89-69 lead with 2:39 to play.

"Defensively, we have been coming together and that is a staple we would like to keep here," Dumars said. "Anyone that comes to Detroit, we will try to install that in them."

Lamond Murray scored 16 points and rookie Maurice Taylor chipped in 13 for the Clippers, who have lost seven of their last eight games and six straight against Detroit. Los Angeles was 2-of-21 from three-point range and shot just 35 percent (28-of-81) overall.

"I think we look like a team that has been on the road the last two weeks," said Clippers coach Bill Fitch, whose team just finished a 1-5 road trip. "When you are missing good ones, it gets under your skin. We missed good shots."

Former Clipper Brian Williams, the Pistons second-leading scorer and top rebounder, missed his first game of the season. He sustained a knee injury early in Wednesday's 87-67 romp at Denver.

Grant Long started in place of Williams and finished with just four points on 1-of-5 shooting but contributed 10 rebounds and three steals.

After hitting just 6-of-26 shots (23 percent) in the first quarter, Detroit connected on 12-of-18 (67 percent) in the second period to take control.

The Pistons trailed 20-15 after the opening quarter before Hill scored seven of the first nine points in the second. The Clippers' James Robinson hit a layup with 5:54 left to tie it, 30-30, but Jerome Williams answered with a driving lay-in to spark the 13-3 burst.

Murray drained a 14-footer with 19 seconds left to cut the deficit to 43-35 at halftime. Stojko Vrankovic and Brent Barry hit back-to-back baskets to open the third quarter, pulling Los Angeles within four.

But Hill reeled off six straight points to build the lead back to double digits and the Clippers got no closer than seven the rest of the way.

"He's (Hill) an all-star, what can you say," Murray said. "Those type of guys are going to get their's regardless. It really doesn't matter who's guarding them."

"Our defense was sensational tonight. Defensively, we were able hold ourselves in there," Collins said. "Then Grant really took over, he played great."

Rodney Rogers had been averaging 25 points over the last three games for Los Angeles but was limited to just six on 3-of-14 shooting. The Clippers' starting backcourt of Barry and Darrick Martin combined to make just 3-of-19 shots from the field and scored 12 points.

Detroit shot 43 percent (33-of-77) from the floor and held a 46-40 rebounding edge.
