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
tying 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. James then collided with Hamilton in the lane on a sequence that saw
the Cavaliers miss three chances to go ahead in the waning seconds. Game 3
will be Sunday night in Cleveland.
