GAME RECAP

Grant Hill scored 25 points and Brian Williams added 24 and 18 rebounds as the Detroit Pistons swept the season series from the Toronto Raptors with a 105-99 victory.

Detroit led the entire second half but Doug Christie buried a three-pointer with 1:31 remaining to cap a 10-1 spurt, pulling the Raptors within 101-99. Hill answered with a jumper just 16 seconds later and, after Toronto was unable to convert, Williams sank two free throws with 16 seconds left to seal the Pistons' fourth win in six games.

"They made a little run there and I don't think any of us got rattled," Hill said. "They cut it to two and we came out and got a shot. They are a team that junks it up, so it's hard to really blow them out."

"You've got to make your three, get a stop on the other end and get the game into a free-throw shooting competition," Christie explained. "We just weren't able to do that tonight."

Detroit avoided its third straight home loss and improved to 11-1 all-time against the Raptors. The Pistons had a 46-40 edge on the boards as Toronto was outrebounded for the 19th straight game.

Chauncey Billups finished with 22 points and Christie chipped in with 19 for the Raptors, who have lost seven of their last eight road games. Toronto's only four wins in 19 games since the All-Star break have come in overtime, including a 104-103 victory over Denver on Thursday.

The Pistons took control of this contest in the second quarter. A dunk by Tracy McGrady gave the Raptors a 48-45 lead with 4:44 left, but Detroit reeled off the next nine points to go ahead for good.

After Don Reid hit a layup, Hill converted the go-ahead three-point play. Lindsey Hunter followed with a jumper before Hill dunked to cap the spurt, putting the Pistons in front, 54-48, with 3:17 remaining. Hill scored 11 points in the second quarter to guide Detroit to a 60-53 halftime lead.

"We dug ourselves a huge hole and it's tough to win when you're a young team and you don't get any calls," Raptors coach Butch Carter said. "We think we're in good physical shape but we're not. Once they figure out what it takes to get in physical shape, we can become a much better ball team."

Williams hit two free throws to give the Pistons their largest lead at 78-64 with 4:45 left in the third period. He collected 13 points in the third as Detroit took an 87-79 lead into the final quarter.

"We made it tough on ourselves. That was just bad ball-handling," said Williams, who committed five of his team's 16 turnovers. "They got a couple of offensive rebounds and they were definitely a threat at that point, but then Grant hit a big shot and put us up four."

Williams sank 10-of-11 from the foul line, handed out five assists, made four steals and blocked three shots.

Marcus Camby scored nine of his 16 points in the third quarter and grabbed eight rebounds but committed a crucial offensive foul with less than 30 seconds to play. John Wallace and Dee Brown contributed 11 points apiece for the Raptors (15-51), who fell to 2-19 against Central Division foes and own the Eastern Conference's worst record.

"It's a young basketball team," Brown said. "Our playoffs are every game, getting better every game."

Jerry Stackhouse totaled 13 points and Hunter added 12 for Detroit, which made just 3-of-17 from three-point range but hit 49 percent (40-of-81) from the field overall.

The Raptors shot 43 percent (36-of-84) and were 8-of-19 from behind the arc.
