Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- The Milwaukee Bucks found it is harder to bounce back from a slow start against one of best defensive teams in the NBA. Richard Hamilton buried two clutch jumpers in the final minutes and Ben Wallace made a pair key defensive plays in the last 60 seconds as the Detroit Pistons extended their winning streak to four games with a 105-99 victory over the Bucks. Milwaukee has started slowly in each of its first six games, averaging only 18.5 points in the first quarter. "I'm getting concerned," Bucks coach Terry Porter said. "We've done it every game now. Starting guys have got to somehow give us a lift. We've just got to figure out why we're not having good starts to our games." The Bucks managed to overcome the sluggish starts to win three of their first five games and nearly pulled off a tremendous comeback against the Pistons. Detroit never trailed and led by as many as 20 points, but Milwaukee dominated the first eight minutes of the fourth quarter, pulling within 96-95 on a jumper by Toni Kukoc with 3:58 left. Hamilton responded with a pair of jumpers to make it 100-95 and, after Kukoc made two free throws, Mehmet Okur sank 1-of-2 from the line with 89 seconds to go. Wallace blocked a shot by rookie T.J. Ford and stole an inbounds pass in the final minute. "(Wallace) just anticipated the inbounds pass," Porter said. "He got his hands on it and got a steal. He can hurt you any way defensively. If you give him an opportunity, he can hurt you." Chauncey Billups buried four free throws in the final 40 seconds for the Pistons, who have not lost since dropping their season opener. "The finish wasn't fun for me," Detroit coach Larry Brown said. "Give (the Bucks) credit. They did an unbelievable job. That really became a game, until Ben comes up with a big steal ... and Chauncey hits the big free throws." "Believe me, that was not our plan for the finish," Billups said. "I thought we showed great character down the stretch. We didn't get out of our game when they made a run. Even when they had it down to a point, we didn't rush anything and we stayed in our offense." Billups scored 27 points on 8-of-16 shooting and Hamilton made 10-of-19 shots en route to 24 points, but the rest of his teammates combined to make just 11-of-52 attempts from the floor. Wallace collected 10 points, 15 rebounds and five blocks and Okur finished with 12 points and a career-high 18 rebounds as the Pistons won for the ninth time in the last 13 home games with the Bucks. Michael Redd scored 28 points to lead Milwaukee, which got a season-high 15 from Damon Jones. Kukoc finished with 12 points and Desmond Mason added 11. "We did a great job of rallying back in the game and I credit them for that," Porter said. "They never gave up. They kept fighting the whole night. That what happens in this league. You use so much energy to try to get back in it, you just can't make up for it." "We need to do a better job at the beginning of games, not digging ourselves such a hole," Jones said. "We would have been fine if we would have stayed close there early and didn't go down 15. Maybe we win this game going away." The Pistons had a dominant first quarter, scoring 18 of the game's first 22 points. They shot 64 percent from the floor and had 10 assists as they jumped out to a 34-23 cushion after 12 minutes. "Our ball movement in the first half was incredible," Brown said. "We tried to play like that all game, but Milwaukee stepped it up." Detroit had its largest lead at 58-38 after Wallace made 1-of-2 free throws with 1:43 left in the first half and had a 15-point halftime advantage. Redd made a pair of baskets during a 16-5 run late in the third quarter as the Bucks pulled within 74-69 with 4:09 remaining. He had a three-point play with 5:18 left in the game and Ford made a layup before Kukoc's jumper made it a one-point game.
