MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Chauncey Billups had 28 points and 14 assists, while Richard Hamilton scored 27 points as the Detroit Pistons beat the Memphis Grizzlies 113-103 on Tuesday night.
Tayshaun Prince scored 19 points and Jason Maxiel finished with 15 points, missing only one of eight shots from the field as the Pistons won their seventh game in the last eight.
Rudy Gay led Memphis with 20 points, 16 in the second half, while Pau Gasol and Kyle Lowry both had 18 points. Hakim Warrick scored 17 points, and Darko Milicic had 12, all in the first quarter.
The Grizzlies, who lost a season-high fifth straight, got little from their starting guards as Mike Miller and Damon Stoudamire combined for eight points, both going 1-of-4 from the field.
Detroit built the lead to double digits in the first half and was never really threatened the rest of the way, although Memphis did get the deficit to 105-98 on a three-point play by Gasol with 1:55 left.
