The Pistons rallied from 16-points down to the Pacers in the second half to take their first lead since the first quarter when Austin Daye hit a jumper with 11-seconds remaining. But Indiana’s Brandon Rush slammed home a backdoor dunk with 5.4 seconds left to give the Pacers a 102-to-101 win at the Palace. Rookie forward Greg Monroe scored 27 points and had 12 boards for the Pistons, who have lost five of their last six.
Tomorrow night, it’s Detroit at Philadelphia. And Carmelo Anthony scored 27 points and former Piston Chauncey Billups added 21 in their debut for the Knicks last night to lead New York to a 114-to-108 victory over Milwaukee at Madison Square Garden.
