Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- The Detroit Pistons won a championship by playing defense, team ball and getting a contribution from everybody. For the second straight game, the Toronto Raptors used that blueprint to record a victory. Loren Woods had a career night and Toronto's bench played great as the Raptors recorded a surprising 101-89 victory over the world-champion Pistons. Woods scored 17 points - one shy of his career best - and added a career-high 14 rebounds for the Raptors, who beat Houston, 95-88, in their season opener on Wednesday. The center shot 8-of-12 from the floor and scored eight points in the first four minutes of the second half. "This is a good opportunity for me to get it," Woods said of establishing a new personal best in rebounds. "Especially against Detroit, because they play a lot of help-side defense. ... I knew Ben Wallace is going to be all over the glass, so I had to bring a more physical presence to today's game." Toronto's reserves outscored the Pistons' bench, 30-8, with Morris Peterson contributing 11 points and Milt Palacio nine. "The starters didn't really play well in the beginning," Raptors guard Vince Carter said. "(Toronto coach Sam Mitchell) made some subs, all five of us, and put that second unit in at 31-21 and they turned it up. Next thing I know, we're up, 37-36. A great effort by everybody." Chris Bosh had 17 points, eight rebounds and three assists for Toronto and scored from outside, inside and on drives. The Raptors, who were outrebounded by more than seven boards a game against the Pistons last season, held a 47-45 advantage on the glass against the defending champions and held them to just under 42 percent (36-of-86) from the floor. "In the second half, the key in the game was we didn't give up as many offensive rebounds," Mitchell said. "Chauncey (Billups) hits two threes in the first half off offensive rebounds and kicking the ball out." With Toronto holding an 87-80 lead with just over four minutes remaining, Rafer Alston knocked down a 3-pointer from the left corner, Woods scored on a layup and Vince Carter drained a 20-foot jump shot to open a 94-80 cushion with 2:59 left. "It's a great feeling to see us compete at this level," Carter said. "With the schedule we have - the Houston Rockets, a potential champion, the NBA champion (Detroit) and an athletic team in Portland - and then we go on the road, it is big for us as far as confidence goes." Billups, who scored 24 points, sparked a 15-3 run late in the first period with three consecutive 3-pointers to give the Pistons a 31-21 advantage after the opening 12 minutes. Richard Hamilton added 24 points and Ben Wallace had 10, 11 rebounds and eight assists for the Pistons, who played without coach Larry Brown. Brown underwent left hip surgery Wednesday and is expected to miss seven to 10 days. Assistant Gar Heard ran the team. "We came out playing hard and made plays, but after a while we started to go through the motions and didn't execute our sets or take anything away from them," Ben Wallace said. "We allowed them to catch the ball and they made plays. Once you give a team like that confidence, it's tough to beat them."
