National Basketball Association Playoff Game Capsules

Auburn Hills, MI (Sports Network) – Rasheed Wallace scored 16 points, pulled
down 11 rebounds and hit the go-ahead jumper with 24.3 seconds left, as
Detroit rallied to beat Cleveland, 79-76, in a tenacious ending to Game 2 of
the Eastern Conference finals. Jason Maxiell had 15 points, while Richard
Hamilton and Chauncey Billups each scored 13 for the Pistons, who ended 6-
of-11 from three-point range. LeBron James, who passed up the potential go-
ahead shot in Cleveland’s loss by an identical score in Monday’s Game 1, had
19 points, six rebounds and seven assists to lead the Cavaliers, but he again
passed up a shot that would have extended a Cleveland lead in the final
minute. Game 3 will be Sunday night in Cleveland.
