Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- Elden Campbell had 27 points and 11 rebounds as the resurgent Charlotte Hornets posted their season-high fourth straight victory, 92-86 over the Detroit Pistons.

David Wesley fell just shy of a triple-double with 10 points, a career-high 10 rebounds and nine assists for Charlotte, which had won three straight games twice this season. The Hornets are 15-1 when Wesley records a double-double.

"(Wesley) was awesome," said interim coach Paul Silas, who has guided the Hornets to a 12-9 mark since taking over for Dave Cowens. "But it is really out of the ordinary. Here's a guy 6-1 really going and getting them (rebounds)."

Charlotte took a commanding 32-19 lead after one quarter, but the Pistons battled back to forge a 59-59 tie on Joe Dumars' jumper with 4:09 remaining in the third period.

Campbell scored six straight points and Chuck Person capped a decisive 9-2 run with a 3-pointer that gave the Hornets a 68-61 lead with 1:58 left.

"I hit some tough shots," Campbell said. "Under any other circumstances, they would be forced shots. But they went in, so it was cool. It's all in shooting and making. This was another huge win for us. We feel like we've got a good flow going. I'm playing and getting all the minutes I want. That's what it takes. Leave me out there, let me play and I'll give you the production."

"We felt Campbell could get off in the paint," Silas added. "He's been working hard in practice and before games on his shooting. It's money now when he shoots. You do expect that kind of production from him. If you could kind of write in 24 or 25 points a game, it's to your advantage."

Chucky Brown scored 14 points and Eddie Jones added 12 for Charlotte (16-20), which pulled within three games of Philadelphia for eighth place in the Eastern Conference.

Don Reid collected a career-high 25 points and Grant Hill added 15 for Detroit (22-16), which dropped into a fourth-place tie with Atlanta in the East. The Pistons and Hawks are 2 1/2 games behind first-place Indiana in the tightly packed Central Division.

"We just got outplayed in every phase of the game," Detroit coach Alvin Gentry said. "That's the bottom line. They outhustled us. They set the tone in the first quarter. We let them get off to a great start and were fighting uphill from there. They just had more energy than we did."

Jerry Stackhouse, who had missed seven of the last eight games with an injured groin, returned to score 14 points for the Pistons. Detroit has lost four of its last six games and may have trouble holding onto a postseason spot as only four of its remaining 12 games will be at Auburn Hills.

Detroit center Bison Dele scored eight points in 12 minutes but was forced to leave the game after the opening quarter with a groin strain. He is listed as day-to-day.

Despite the absence of Derrick Coleman, the Hornets' leading rebounder, Charlotte held a 45-38 advantage on the boards. Coleman remains day-to-day with a sprained left ankle.

These teams will meet again on Wednesday in Charlotte to complete the home-and-home series.

Charlotte's Bobby Phills, who had hit game-winning shots in each of the last two victories, had 10 points and eight rebounds. The Hornets shot 49 percent (32-of-66) and overcame 18 turnovers.

Reid was 10-of-13 from the field but watched his teammates make only 22-of-73 shots, giving the Pistons a 38 percent performance.

Detroit was a woeful 2-of-17 from beyond the arc, including an 0-of-1 by Grant Hill, who has not made one in 13 attempts this season. Charlotte connected on 6-of-13 from long range.

The Hornets watched a nine-point halftime lead disappear on Dumars' jumper, capping a 15-6 run that made it 59-59 with 4:10 remaining in the third quarter.

But Campbell drained a pair of jumpers and added an emphatic slam before Person sank a 23-footer from the left corner to make it 68-61 with 1:58 left.

"(Campbell's) been big for us on this whole streak," Wesley said. "We need that presence inside, both offensively and defensively. The way he's been crashing the boards has been huge."
