Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- King James was denied by a Prince. Tayshaun Prince showed his defensive prowess in the second half, holding LeBron James to 4-of-19 shooting as the Detroit Pistons extended their winning streak to 10 games with a 90-87 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. The loss was the sixth in eight games for the Cavaliers (40-40), who fell into a tie with New Jersey (40-40) for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot. The Nets hold the tiebreaker. Philadelphia is one game ahead of Cleveland and New Jersey for seventh. "I'm proud that we competed because Philadelphia and New Jersey were affected by this game," Pistons coach Larry Brown said. James appeared determined to get the Cavaliers closer to a playoff spot in the first half, scoring 25 points on 8-of-16 shooting as Cleveland built a 52-40 lead. However, the second half was a different story as the long-armed Prince - who harassed Kobe Bryant during last year's NBA Finals - shadowed James, who finished with 37. "They always have defended me well," James said. "Tayshaun does a great job. It is hard to get close to the hole because they help each other out very well." Along with disrupting James, Prince scored 15 points. He made a spin move around James before driving the baseline for a one-handed dunk with 1:39 left, giving Detroit an 88-81 lead. "A lot of people know that I like to go middle and I heard their whole bench saying that I would go middle, so I thought that if I would go baseline that it would be open," Prince said. Back-to-back 3-pointers by James and Ira Newble made it 88-87 before Detroit's Antonio McDyess made 1-of-2 free throws with 38 seconds left. With a chance to tie the game, James shot an airball from the left side with Prince in his face. Chauncey Billups split two free throws with 15 seconds left, giving the Cavs another chance. But James again was confronted by Prince above the top of the arc and again failed to hit the rim on a potential tying 3-pointer. "The tough thing for him there is he knows he needs a three," Prince said. "The easy thing for me is I could crowd him and not worry about the drive." "Unbelievable," Billups said of Prince's defense. "LeBron, he's a freak of nature so he's going to get a lot of shots. He shot 35 shots and 14 free throws, and every one of them was tough, outside of some breakaways. Tay, I thought, wore him down, made him play some defense, made him guard too. I thought LeBron was tired late in the game." The Cavaliers host Boston on Tuesday and visit Toronto on Wednesday to close the season. They have not made the playoffs since 1998. "Every game is a playoff game now," said Cavaliers center Zydrunas Ilgauskas, who finished with 12 points and 17 rebounds. "We've been through a lot of adversity, and we aren't going to quit now. We just need to step up and win these last two." But the Cavaliers let this opportunity slip away. The Pistons played without Rasheed Wallace most of the way, yet still erased a 12-point halftime deficit. Wallace strained his left hamstring in the first quarter and did not return. Newble scored 16 of his 19 points in the first half for Cleveland. Billups scored 16 of his 17 points in the third quarter when Detroit outscored the Cavaliers, 25-13. James made just 2-of-12 shots in the quarter. Richard Hamilton led the Pistons with 19 points. He left the game late in the third quarter when he caught an elbow by Ilgauskas across his left eye and received five stitches. Hamilton returned early in the fourth. Four Pistons received technical fouls - Hamilton, Prince, Ben Wallace and Antonio McDyess. Ben Wallace collected 11 points, 15 rebounds and four blocked shots. McDyess filled in for Rasheed Wallace and added 11 points and 12 rebounds.
