Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- The Chicago Bulls are at .500. The Detroit Pistons are at a loss. Kirk Hinrich scored 16 of his 24 points in the second half as the Bulls reached the .500 mark for the first time this season with a 100-89 triumph over the Pistons, who have lost three straight games. After opening the season with nine consecutive losses, Chicago crept within a game of the break-even mark at 17-18 before falling to Boston on Wednesday. But a victory over Atlanta on Friday put the Bulls in line to reach .500 for the first time since October 31, 2003, when they were 1-1. It also is the first time since the 1997-98 campaign Chicago has been at .500 this late in the season. Coach Scott Skiles downplayed the achievement, even though his players did not. "It's not even halfway (through the season)," Skiles said. "The guys were talking about it after the game, but it all depends on what we do after this. We want to be way above .500, but to do that, I guess you have to hit .500 first." Even though the Bulls were pleased with improving to 500, they were not satisfied. "We're glad to be at .500, especially after starting 0-9," Hinrich said. "It shows that we've made a lot of progress, but we want to keep getting better." "It feels good to be .500, but we can't relax now," center Eddy Curry added. "We have bigger goals. This is just another goal that we've achieved." Chicago escaped the first quarter with a 24-24 tie despite 16 points by Detroit's Richard Hamilton. The guard added nine in the second period as the Pistons took a 47-44 advantage into the break. The Bulls opened the second half with a 7-0 run to grab a 51-47 lead. A jumper by Hamilton with 10:04 remaining put Detroit ahead, 74-72, but Hinrich scored 10 points in an ensuing 26-11 burst that sealed the win. During the spurt, the Pistons were hit with three technical fouls and Hinrich converted each of them. "Emotions were running high," Hinrich said. "We both had tough games last night and were fatigued. I just wanted to make my free throws. That's really all that I was thinking about." Hamilton believed Detroit must do a better job of keeping its poise, especially in close games. "Regardless of how (the officials) are calling it, we have to keep our composure," he said. "It was a three-point game when we got those technicals. We have to learn how valuable these games are. All three of the games we've lost (during the streak), we've lost in the fourth quarter." Detroit coach Larry Brown was unhappy with the way his team let the game slip away in the fourth quarter. "We're not finishing games," he said. "We're not getting stops and making the right play. I don't get the feeling that we're playing harder than everybody, and that's what really troubles me. "I don't get upset too much about guys complaining. For the most part, I know these guys care about winning. ... You have to know when to hold them and know when to fold them. It doesn't seem like we're learning from any of these experiences." Hinrich handed out nine assists, Curry scored 15 points and Antonio Davis had 14 and eight rebounds for the Bulls, who have won at Detroit twice in a season for the first time since 1995-96, when they set an NBA record with a 72-10 mark. "It feels good to beat a great team like Detroit twice," Hinrich said. "I remember how tough it was to play here last year." Hamilton scored 32 points, Rasheed Wallace chipped in 15 and Chauncey Billups and Antonio McDyess added 13 apiece for the defending champion Pistons, whose season-high slide has followed a season-high six-game winning streak.
