Game Story

NEW ORLEANS (Ticker) -- Good shooting finally paid off for the Detroit Pistons. Ben Wallace scored a career-high 22 points and Richard Hamilton added 21 as the Pistons routed the New Orleans Hornets, 92-69, for their first win of the season when shooting better than 50 percent. Losers of four of their previous six overall, the Pistons entered this one with an 0-4 mark when making more than half their shots. And in its last seven wins, Detroit had shot just 37 percent. "Defense. Defense, man, every time," guard Chauncey Billups said. "We're not a run-and-gun, quick-shot team. We control the ball, control the tempo and take things away on the defensive end. We've won games shooting 32 percent, and that's because of our defense." But the Pistons had success from the floor in this one, making 13-of-18 shots in the first quarter to open a 32-20 lead. They shot 54 percent (20-of-37) in the first half, with Hamilton scoring 15 points and Wallace adding 13. Detroit, which never trailed and led by as many as 25 points, maintained the pace in the second half to shoot 54 percent (37-of-68) and post its largest road win against the Hornets' franchise. It was the first time the Pistons allowed less than 70 points since the sixth and final game of last season's Eastern Conference finals against Indiana. And it was the fewest points the Hornets have scored at home in their three seasons in New Orleans. "This was the first time in a long time that we got to play with everybody in the lineup, everybody in sync and knowing what we want," Hamilton said. "We know you can't win championships in December, but we've got to get better." Wallace, playing for the second time since a six-game suspension for his flagrant foul and shove of Indiana's Ron Artest on November 19, had another explanation for the Pistons' shooting success. "Ball movement," he said. "Any time we get the ball moving from side to side, get everybody open looks, good things happen." Wallace made a career-best 10 baskets in 14 attempts and grabbed eight rebounds in 38 minutes. "(Ben) did a lot of great things," Detroit coach Larry Brown said. "I played him longer spurts than I would normally, but I've got to get him ready to play. He's kind of feeling his way. But he was terrific." Tayshaun Prince had 14 points and 11 rebounds for his second double-double of the season and Rasheed Wallace matched his season high with 10 boards for the Pistons (8-8), who avoided falling two games below .500 for the first time in four seasons. "We had too many turnovers (18), a lot of them unforced," Brown said. "But other than that, we did a lot of good things." Lee Nailon scored 18 points - all in the first half - and David Wesley added 14 for New Orleans, which lost its sixth straight game and dropped to 0-8 at home. The 1-14 start is the worst in the Hornets' 17-year history. "Our lack of intensity was the big problem tonight," New Orleans coach Byron Scott said. "This is the first time all season we came out and played scared. We looked like we were afraid of that team. We were scared to compete." The Hornets, who entered the game next-to-last in the NBA in points per game, have scored less than 40 points in six of their last seven halves. Their injury problems continued in the first three minutes, when forward David West sprained his right knee and did not return.
