Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- While Grant Hill and Patrick Ewing struggled most of the way, the old pro came through for the Detroit Pistons.

Joe Dumars scored eight of his 21 points in a decisive 14-0 third-quarter run to lead the Pistons to an 89-68 rout of the New York Knicks.

The 35-year-old Dumars, who has spent his entire 13-year career with Detroit, hit two of his four 3-pointers in the spurt, which opened a 64-45 lead. The Pistons extended their winning streak to four games and avenged a 79-68 loss at New York 13 days ago.

"You look at our team and you can see how much Joe Dumars means," Pistons coach Alvin Gentry said. "For him to come back and play at the level he's played at, I can't see how anybody can be Player of the Week but him."

Since missing six games with a strained right hamstring, Dumars has scored 82 points in four games, shooting 17-of-31 from 3-point range. Today, he was 7-of-11 from the field, including 4-of-6 from behind the arc.

"Joe's playing great right now," said Knicks guard Allan Houston, a former teammate of Dumars. "They did a really good job of moving the ball around and finding him and Joe's not going to miss those shots."

Hill made just 2-of-11 shots and scored four points, his lowest total since he scored just two points in a November 1997 game against Charlotte. Although he shot poorly, Hill grabbed 11 rebounds and handed out eight assists.

"If one area is not going well, then you try to make the contributions in other areas," Hill said. "We showed today it's not a one-, two- or three-man show. It's a team."

Ewing scored just six points in 28 minutes, his lowest total since he scored six against Detroit in December 1996.

"We did a good job on Patrick," Gentry said. "I thought the player of the game was Eric Montross. The defense he played on Patrick and just his presence in the middle was great. He took a guy like Patrick and kept him out on the perimeter and made him shoot over the top."

"I do what I always try to do -- get him out of his comfort zone," Montross said. "I just try to force him a step to a step and a half from where he wants to take his shot."

Lindsey Hunter scored 16 points and Jerry Stackhouse added 13 off the bench for the Pistons.

The Knicks, who played their third game in four days and play again Monday and Tuesday, scored just 27 points on 10-of-34 shooting in the second half. They shot just 36 percent overall.

"We had no spark or enthusiasm," Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy said. "We were very flat. It's hard to think why only 13 games into the season."

"We took quick shots and then we couldn't get the rebounds," Ewing said. "We didn't play with any force or collective energy. We got our butts kicked."

Houston led the Knicks in scoring for the fifth time in the last six games with just 13 points on 4-of-12 shooting. Larry Johnson added 12 points.

Dumars hit a pair of short jumpers in an 8-0 run which opened a 41-31 lead in the second quarter.

After the Knicks pulled within 50-45 on a tip-in by Johnson with 9:34 left in the third quarter, the Pistons reeled off 14 points. Hunter hit a jumper to start the run with 8:43 remaining and Dumars capped it with a 3-pointer with 5:29 left.

Detroit increased the lead to 76-49 with 1:28 left in the third quarter.

The Knicks cleared their bench and scored their first basket in a 12-point fourth quarter when Rick Brunson hit a jumper with 4:46 left. New York was 5-of-17 from the field in the period but the Pistons' reserves were even worse, scoring 11 points on 3-of-16 shooting.
