Pistons roll past Houston 94-82

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — The Houston Rockets were running on fumes Sunday night, then lost their two best players while playing the NBA's hottest team.

密西根奧本山 -- 火箭在對上NBA最火熱的球隊時,痛失兩名最優秀的球員。

The result wasn't a surprise.


Richard Hamilton scored 17 points and Antonio McDyess and Rasheed Wallace added double-doubles, helping the Detroit Pistons beat the shorthanded Rockets 94-82.


Detroit (20-7) has won five straight and 12 of 14, and joins Boston as the
only teams with 20 victories. Houston has lost four of its last five.


"Our defense is getting to be extremely solid," Pistons coach Flip Saunders
said. "We turned it up in the third quarter. We've been doing that a lot

「我們的防守非常堅強,」活塞隊總教練Flip Saunders說道。


The Rockets were playing their fourth game since Tuesday, and only arrived in Detroit 15 hours before the 6 p.m. start.


"You have to take this game with a grain of salt," said Detroit native Shane Battier. "This was our fourth game in five nights in four different cities. Obviously, we would like to play better, but Detroit took care of business."



To make matters worse for the Rockets, Tracy McGrady didn't come out for the second half after aggravating a sore knee, and Yao Ming sat out the last 15 minutes after needing four stitches to close a facial cut.


Rockets coach Rick Adelman said McGrady aggravated an ongoing knee problem on a dunk late in the second quarter. He missed Wednesday's loss, but played 30 minutes against Chicago on Friday.

火箭教練Adelman說,踢妹的膝傷在第二節的灌籃之後更嚴重了。他錯過了禮拜三的比賽, 但對公牛的比賽打了30分鐘。

"He was moving around pretty well at the beginning of the game, but after
that dunk, he started limping again," Adelman said. "You have to be concerned at this point. We'll have to look at it when we get back to Houston."


McDyess finished with 12 points and 11 rebounds — his fifth straight game
with at least 10 rebounds — and Wallace had 14 points and 10 rebounds.


"We saw Tracy limping, and we tried to turn up the offense and the defense," McDyess said. "When he left the game, we really turned it on."



Luis Scola led Houston with 18 points. McGrady scored 14 points in limited
action, while Yao had 12 on 4-for-13 shooting against McDyess's defense.

Luis Scola得了18分,T-mac在短時間內得到14分,然而姚明在馬岱的防守之下只有悽慘的投13中4,得到12分。

"I guess with four games in five nights, you're going to be frustrated when
your shots aren't going down," McDyess said. "He was frustrated, and that
worked to our advantage."

Wallace hit a pair of 3-pointers in the final minute of the first quarter,
including one at the buzzer, to put the Pistons up 25-22. He finished the
half with 14 points, helping Detroit to a 51-44 lead.

Wallace在第一節最後幹進了兩個三分球,包括一個buzzer beater,帶領活塞以25-22領先火箭。他上半場得到14分,幫助活塞51-44領先。

With McGrady and Yao sidelined in the third, McDyess and Hamilton took over the game. The pair combined for 21 points in the period, helping Detroit build a 78-60 lead.


"We stayed close for a half, but they really took over in the third," Adelman
said. "We didn't have any energy — we needed to push the ball, and we were walking it up the court."



The Pistons led by 20 early in the fourth quarter, and Houston never
threatened to get back into the game.


NOTES:@ Steve Francis missed his second consecutive game with flu-like
symptoms. ... Yao appeared to sustain his cut in a collision with teammate
Luther Head. He returned to the bench during the fourth quarter, but never re-entered the game. ... Rodney Stuckey didn't score in 12 minutes, two nights after making his NBA debut. The 15th pick in June, Stuckey missed the first 25 games with a broken hand. ... Saunders picked up a technical for arguing a call, as did Houston's Bonzi Wells and Dikembe Mutombo.



3、Rodney Stuckey上場12分鐘內沒得到半分。活塞的第15順位新秀,之前因為手骨折錯過了前面25場比賽。
