=== Detroit Pistons Team Report – March 8 ===

(Sports Network) – Rasheed Wallace scored 18 points and the Detroit defense
held the Seattle SuperSonics to a franchise-low tying 65 points in an 86-65
Pistons rout on Sunday at KeyArena.

Tayshaun Prince scored 14 points and Ben Wallace had 12 points with a game-
high 13 rebounds for the Pistons, who have won seven of their last eight
games.

Detroit played again without starting guard Richard Hamilton, who is
recovering from surgery to repair a broken nose. He hopes to return on
Wednesday at home against the Chicago Bulls.

After holding the Nuggets to just 66 points on Saturday, the Pistons have
allowed a total of 131 points in their last two games and have held the
opposition to under 70 points the last three games.

Detroit, at 41-25, is third in the Eastern Conference standings, 7 1/2 games
back of the Indiana Pacers.

The Pistons will kick off a brief two-game homestand on Wednesday against the
Bulls and will close the stand against the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday.
Detroit is 21-10 at home this season.
