Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- While Richard Hamilton had no trouble working overtime, Michael Jordan and Jerry Stackhouse punched out early. Hamilton set the tone in overtime by scoring his club's first six points and Jordan and Stackhouse disappeared in the extra session as the Detroit Pistons stopped a six-game road losing streak with a 94-90 victory over the Washington Wizards. Acquired from Washington in an offseason deal for Stackhouse, Hamilton was quiet for the first three quarters before emerging in the extra period. Hamilton buried three jumpers in the first 2:15 of overtime, giving the Pistons a 90-86 lead. Those were his only points of overtime as he finished with 16. "I thought he played like a real professional tonight because even though he struggled early, he became more patient as the game went on and he hit huge shots for us to start overtime and gave us energy," Pistons coach Rick Carlisle said. "I like the way he's handling the last five or six minutes. He's learning a lot and he's getting better." "He struggled early but he came out in overtime and did what he had to do. He made shots for us," Pistons center Clifford Robinson said. "We need him to just play and relax and not worry about going out there and feeling the pressure of having to score a lot of points. When we move the ball, we have guys capable of scoring." Jordan and Stackhouse carried the Wizards in the fourth quarter, combining to score 21 of their team's 23 points. But they were nowhere to be found in overtime. The duo combined for just two points while looking flustered against the tough Pistons' defense. Jordan committed two turnovers and had his only shot attempt blocked by Ben Wallace, while Stackhouse also had a turnover and played out of control. Stackhouse finished with 28 points and the 40-year-old Jordan had 23 and 11 rebounds in 50 minutes as Washington fell into a tie with Milwaukee for the Eastern Conference's final playoff berth. "It was a hard-fought game," Jordan said. "We made some mistakes, they made some mistakes and they capitalized on our mistakes in overtime." Wallace finished with 20 rebounds, becoming the first player since Dennis Rodman in 1997-98 to have at least 20 rebounds in four straight games. The NBA's leading rebounder, Wallace has 86 boards over his last four games. "I'm just looking to do whatever I can to help this team win," said Wallace, a former Wizard. "Every night we stress rebounding, and that's what I bring to this team. That's what I'm looking to do every night." "They are the best team in the Eastern Conference," Stackhouse said. "It's plain and simple. We have to get better. We can't allow someone to come in here and get 20 rebounds." Chauncey Billups scored 26 points to lead Detroit, which remained 1 1/2 games ahead of New Jersey for the Eastern Conference's best record. Following Hamilton's hot start in overtime, the Wizards closed to 91-88 with 1:07 remaining on Christian Laettner's jumper from the right baseline. Billups missed a tough runner on the Pistons' ensuing possession before Wallace showed why he's the reigning Defensive Player of the Year. Out of a timeout, the Wizards went to Jordan, who spun into the lane and had his shot blocked by the 6-9 Wallace. Jordan protested that he was hit on the arm. "It was at that point in the game when the ref wasn't going to try to decide the game," said Wallace, who had seven blocked shots. "In overtime, you let the players decide the game. I didn't think it was a foul, but that's Mike and he usually gets that call. That just complements us playing hard. Never concede anything ... making them make tough plays and making them make tough shots." Wallace drew praise from Carlisle. "I've run out of adjectives to describe what he's doing right now," Carlisle said. "When you play 50 minutes and get 20 rebounds and seven blocked shots, that's a man's man." Carlisle also should have reserved some praise for his club's bench, which came up huge in the fourth quarter. Reserves Corliss Williamson and Mehmet Okur combined to score the Pistons' first 14 points of the period. Wallace had the first points by a starter, an acrobatic layup with 4:38 left that gave the Pistons a 77-74 lead. Williamson netted 16 points and Okur 12, helping the Pistons garner a lopsided 38-5 edge in bench points. "We didn't get much from our bench today," Jordan said. "Our bench didn't play many minutes, actually. In fairness to them, they really didn't get on the court in any rhythm." While the Pistons' bench was getting the job done, so were Stackhouse and Jordan. Stackhouse scored 14 points in the quarter, including a jumper with 3:15 remaining that gave the Wizards their last lead at 80-79. Jordan netted seven points in the final period. Stackhouse and Jordan received some help from Laettner, who finished with 12 points and a season-high 18 rebounds.
