Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- All-Star Grant Hill scored 30 points and Lindsey Hunter added 28 to lead the Detroit Pistons to a 115-108 overtime victory over the Toronto Raptors.

Hill also grabbed 13 rebounds and opened overtime with a 17-footer before Hunter followed with consecutive running jumpers to give Detroit a 106-100 lead with 3:07 remaining.

"I was so tired at the end of the game. Luckily Lindsey had a great second half and hit some big shots in overtime," Hill said. "That would have been a really tough loss to swallow going into the All-Star break. Now we have a little momentum and we have to keep it up after the break."

All-Star Jerry Stackhouse was limited to 13 points for the Pistons, who improved to 14-5 all-time against the Raptors. Detroit (25-23) is one-half game behind the Milwaukee Bucks for seventh place in the Eastern Confernce.

All-Star Vince Carter shook off a sprained ankle to collect 34 points and a season-high 13 rebounds and Tracy McGrady added 20 and nine off the bench for Toronto (26-21), which had won five of its last six games.

The Raptors, who have not made the playoffs since entering the league in 1995, fell one game behind the Charlotte Hornets for fourth place in the Eastern Conference.

Carter, who has scored at least 30 points in three straight games, converted 14-of-15 free throws as the Raptors shot 87 percent (40-of-46) from the line.

"The next time anyone complains about us shooting a lot of free throws they should look at Vince Carter," said Detroit coach Alvin Gentry. "Not even Grant Hill gets fouled every time he goes to the basket. Vince Carter gets all the calls that Michael Jordan got. Maybe it's a North Carolina thing. He's a great player and one of the most exciting talents in the NBA, but if he's shooting 15 free throws in a game like this, Grant should shoot 20."

Stackhouse was not as bold as his coach when speaking about the 46-31 disparity in free throws.

"They had some help getting back into the game and that's all I'm going to say because I didn't have enough money to say anymore," Stackhouse said. "You all saw the game. This is really nice for us because it shows us that the slump we had wasn't the end of the world."

The Raptors pulled within 106-102 when Carter drove for a layup with 2:51 remaining. Hunter answered with a 13-footer but Dell Curry hit a 3-pointer to cut Detroit's lead to 108-105 with 1:43 left. Carter had another layup to make it 108-107 with 1:11 to go.

Hunter sank two free throws with 52 seconds remaining and after a missed jumper by Carter, Stackhouse made one from the line to give the Pistons a 111-107 cushion with 40 seconds to go. After Curry missed a 3-pointer, two free throws by Michael Curry pushed the lead to 113-108 with 29 seconds left.

"Grant and Stackhouse are too good in the transition to let them run up and down the court," said Toronto coach Butch Carter. "They use their fresh legs to get a lot of transition baskets and on defense we stood around and didn't talk."

Detroit never trailed in the first half and held a 56-44 lead at the break behind Hill's 16 points.

The Pistons withstood a couple of spurts by Toronto in the third quarter and held an 88-74 lead after Loy Vaught made a layup with 8:43 to play. Carter's layup capped an 8-2 spurt and pulled the Raptors within 91-87 with 4:40 left.

The Raptors did not lead until newcomer Haywoode Workman hit a 16-footer to make it 99-98 with 38 seconds left. Detroit regained the lead when Hunter made a pair of free throws nine seconds later. Antonio Davis made one foul shot to tie the score, 100-100, with 27 seconds to play.

Carter blocked John Crotty's jumper from the top of the key with six seconds left to give the Raptors a chance for victory. But Workman missed a long 3-pointer from the left side as time expired.

Workman, who was claimed off waivers from the Milwaukee Bucks earlier in the day, made 2-of-6 shots in 11 minutes.
