GAME RECAP

Grant Hill had 23 points and 12 rebounds and Brian Williams scored 20 points as the Detroit Pistons made a club-record 22 straight free throws in the first half and handed the Indiana Pacers their worst loss of the season, 122-91.

Jerry Stackhouse came off the bench and scored 13 of his 19 points in the second quarter, when Detroit outscored Indiana, 38-20. The Pistons, who had lost the first three meetings with the Pacers this season, shot 91 percent (39-for-43) from the free throw line and made 41-of-70 (58.5 percent) shots from the field.

"As a team we just came out and attacked them right away," Stackhouse said. "This was definitely a huge win, considering it's been an up-and-down season for the team and myself. At this point we need to win all of our home games and hold nothing back."

Dale Davis had 15 points and six rebounds and Rik Smits and Reggie Miller each added 14 points for the Pacers, whose previous worst loss was a 91-79 setback at San Antonio on December 23rd.

"Obviously we didn't come to play tonight," said Indiana coach Larry Bird. "Tonight the Pistons played by themselves, we weren't out there. Grant Hill started off beating us off the dribble then Joe (Dumars) hit some post-up shots. But we just didn't come to play. When a team hits some shots and the other team doesn't come to play, it's easy to get a lead. Guys are just not anticipating like they were."

Dumars contributed 18 points, making 6-of-11 shots from the floor, and Jerome Williams added 12 for the Pistons, who returned home from an 0-3 road trip and received points from 11 players. Detroit's starting point guard Lindsey Hunter was the only Piston without a point, missing five shots from the field.

Stackhouse had six points and Dumars five in Detroit's 21-3 second-quarter run that put away the game. Dumars began the run by making a free throw after an illegal defense violation with 9:18 left and Williams capped it with a tip-in for a 57-31 bulge with 3:41 to go in the second. Detroit shot 62 percent (23-for-37) in the first half for a 68-44 lead at the break.

"We got off to such a good start," said Detroit coach Alvin Gentry. "We were good offensively but I felt we were doing a good job defensively. We were able to play them without doubling. I thought that was the big key. We played well but it's one game. I still think it was our defense that won the game for us. We had 25 fast-break points, anytime you have that you're probably going to score 100 points."

The Pistons had their biggest lead when Stackhouse made a jumper with 10:53 left in the fourth to make it 100-63.

Detroit took the lead for good when Williams hit a hook shot for a 10-8 edge with 8:35 left in the opening quarter. Dumars capped an 8-0 surge with a jumper for a 14-10 advantage with 7:12 left in the first. Hill had 14 points and Williams eight as the Pistons led, 30-24, after the first.
