Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- Statistically, Darius Miles is a poor free-throw shooter. But he came through when his team needed him most. Miles swished in a foul shot with five-tenths of a second remaining to give the Portland Trail Blazers a 75-74 victory over the Detroit Pistons after blowing a 15-point second-half lead. After Chauncey Billups drained game-tying 3-pointer with 7.8 seconds remaining, Miles - a 60 percent shooter from the line - dribbled toward the lane and drew a blocking foul from Ben Wallace. He missed the first but coolly made the second. "There was big pressure - like a playoff game," Miles said. "I just wanted to make at least one of them. The crowd was going nuts when I was shooting them." After Chauncey Billups drained game-tying 3-pointer with 7.8 seconds remaining, Miles - a 60 percent shooter from the line - dribbled toward the lane and drew a blocking foul from two-time Defensive Player of the Year Ben Wallace. He missed the first but coolly made the second. Once they saw the replay, the Pistons agreed with the official's call. "It was a foul," Detroit coach Larry Brown said. "It was unfortunate. Ben was trying to make a hustle play. He did the right thing, but then Miles crossed the lane. It's just one of those things." "It was the right call," Wallace said. Rasheed Wallace's last-second 20-footer hit the top of the backboard. The ex-Trail Blazer scored 17 points but just two in the second half. Portland built a 57-42 advantage with 4:05 left in the third quarter on a jumper by Miles, who scored 13 points. But Detroit rallied to take a 67-66 lead on another 3-pointer by Billups with 4:33 to go. Billups scored 16 points. "We had a chance of putting this game away many times, but I knew they were going to make a run because they're the world champs," Portland coach Maurice Cheeks said. "They always think they're in the game. They have guys who make shots to put them back into the game. I give them credit, but we did a good job tonight holding on for the win." "We should have had this one wrapped up tightly, but they made a sizable run and got back into it," Miles said. "I give them a lot of credit. It was a fun game. We played hard and so did they." After come-from-behind wins against New York and Cleveland earlier this week, the Pistons could not overcome 32 percent (29-of-92) shooting, the lowest surrendered by the Trail Blazers this season. "It was a big win," said Damon Stoudamire, who came off the bench for the second straight game after starting 104 in a row. "Detroit has been playing good ball lately, and to come in here and beat them tonight, especially after playing last night, is big for us. It really motivates us and keeps us going. This win will give us some much-needed confidence." Detroit's Richard Hamilton had a dreadful game, missing his first 11 shots from the field and finishing 3-of-22 for just 11 points. "I kept saying, 'The next one's gonna fall,' but it didn't," Hamilton said. "That's how you have to approach it. If one doesn't fall, the next one will." Billups also struggled for the Pistons, making just 5-of-15 shots. "When your shots aren't falling, you start to second-guess yourself," he said. "You pass up a shot to make a pass, then you wind up taking a worse shot than the first one." "I thought we did a good job chasing them, making them shoot and contesting all of their shots," Stoudamire said. "That's all you can do to those guys. They play so well together. It's rare that you can hold both of those guys to bad shooting nights on the same night." The Pistons stayed in the game on the strength of a 56-33 rebounding advantage, including 25-6 on the offensive glass. The point guard rotation of Stoudamire and Nick Van Exel scored 14 points apiece for Portland, which has won six of the last seven meetings in Detroit.
