Will Bynum Breaks Team Record with 26 in Fourth Quarter
To make matters worse, Rasheed Wallace was in foul trouble and Rip Hamilton had just been ejected for arguing with officials at the end of the third quarter.
And that’s when backup point guard Will Bynum took over. In a word, Bynum was magic.
The small second-year point guard made everything he looked at. He converted all six of his field goals in the fourth and finished the quarter with a franchise-record 26 points as part of his career-high 32 points.
Bynum was the difference in leading the Pistons (37-40) to a 104-97 victory. That ended the Pistons’ three-game losing streak, gave them a three-game cushion over Charlotte (34-43) in the playoff race and also clinched the season series, 3-1.
