Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- Richard Hamilton and the Detroit Pistons continued where they left off against the Orlando Magic. Hamilton scored 13 of his 14 points in the first quarter as the Pistons opened a comfortable early cushion and cruised to their season high-tying eighth straight win, a 103-94 triumph over the reeling Magic, who were all but eliminated from playoff contention. "I wasn't feeling too well tonight, so I'm glad we got a big lead early," Hamilton said. "Then the bench sustained the lead." Hamilton didn't mind that no starter played more than 30 minutes. "The rest is helpful for us, and it's important that the guys on the bench get some minutes, too," he said. Orlando interim coach Chris Jent said that Hamilton's shooting was a major factor in the game. "Our goal was to make them a jump-shooting team, and he hit some shots in a row," Jent said. "He basically brought us out of our zone." Orlando (35-43) officially will be eliminated if the eighth-place Philadelphia 76ers win any of their final five games or it loses any of its final four. Tayshaun Prince and reserve Carlos Arroyo added 14 points apiece for the Pistons, who shot 68 percent in the second half of a 114-102 win in Orlando on Friday and 74 percent (14-of-19) in the first quarter of this one to built a 31-17 advantage. The game was tied, 12-12, four minutes into the contest before the Pistons embarked on a 15-3 run. They led by double figures until the final minute. "We had a great first quarter with 13 assists on 14 field goals," Detroit coach Larry Brown said. "We had the opportunity to rest some people and to play some people, which is good. ... I think it would be an advantage to have certain guys on the bench get some minutes, especially (Carlos) Delfino and Elden (Campbell). If we can get them some time with the other players, I think they'll make some progress." To a man, the Pistons said that they could not relax as the regular season winds to a close, despite having clinched the second seed in the Eastern Conference. "It's important for us to stay aggressive and play the right way," Hamilton said. "We did that tonight." "We just have to go out and play basketball for these last four games," Ben Wallace said. "When you aren't playing hard, that's when people get hurt." Detroit, which also won eight straight games from February 10-March 1, opened a 56-38 lead at the break and took a 78-62 cushion into the final period. Orlando pulled within 81-71 on a 3-pointer by rookie Jameer Nelson with 9:08 remaining, but Detroit's Antonio McDyess had dunks on consecutive possessions to trigger a 10-0 run. Lindsey Hunter capped the burst with a three-point play for a 91-71 advantage with 6:53 left. Nelson scored 13 of his season-high 30 points in the fourth quarter for the Magic, but starting backcourt mate Steve Francis was limited to six on 3-of-13 shooting. "I couldn't get anything going," said Francis, who averaged 28.7 points in the previous three meetings with the Pistons. "They had four people waiting for me when I got the ball. That forced me to take some shots I didn't want to take." Already shorthanded with Grant Hill, Andrew DeClercq, Doug Christie and Hedo Turkoglu on the injured list, the Magic were without starting guard DeShawn Stevenson and forward Pat Garrity, who both missed the game to be present for the birth of their children, and center Kelvin Cato, who had a sore back. "It was tough," Nelson said. "DeShawn was playing great and we lose his points. Then we lose Cato's points and his defense down low. And we still don't have Grant. When it rains, it pours."
