Pistons beat the Knicks 106-98 in Larry Browns first visit back to the Palace of Auburn Hills since departing from the Pistons. Although the game was close the first half the Pistons put it in gear and pushed forward leading by as much as 19 in the fourth quarter. The Pistons played a bit sloppy and the Knicks cut the deficit to five by the end of the 4th but the Pistons do what they do best, and held on for the win.
Detroit pushed its league-best record to 12-2 as Richard Hamilton outscored the Knicks entire starting five with a season high 40 points coming off of a 30 point game against the Nets on Wednesday.
On a side note, if more of this Pistons squad aren’t chosen to represent the ”D” in this years All-Star game, then the voting system really needs to be looked at. I mean come on Amare Stoudemire is on the ballot! Do you hear us David Stern?
