NBA Game Summary - Detroit at Golden State

(Saturday, February 27th)

Final Score: Golden State 95, Detroit 88

Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - Anthony Tolliver provided a spark off the bench with 19 points and a career-best 14 rebounds, and Golden State scored the game's final 10 points in a 95-88 victory over the Detroit Pistons.

Stephen Curry totaled 27 points for the Warriors, who snapped a two-game overall skid and a five-game slide against the Pistons.

Golden State rallied from a 14-point deficit and had just seven players at the end of the game. Monta Ellis sat out due to a sore back and Andris Biedrins suffered a strained right groin in the third quarter.

C.J. Watson added 17 points, Anthony Morrow 15 and Ronny Turiaf 11 for Golden State, which outscored the Pistons, 58-38, in the second half. They held Detroit without a field goal over the final 3:50 of the game.

"It's tremendously awesome, to put it nicely," Turiaf said. "We've been in those situations, unfortunately on the other side of its. It's a bowl of fresh air."

Tayshaun Prince had 18 points for the Pistons, who have lost three in a row. Rodney Stuckey scored 17 and Richard Hamilton 16 in defeat.

The downfall for the Pistons was foul shooting, specifically Ben Wallace, who went 1-of-9 at the charity stripe. That included a pair of air balls in the closing half-minute. The Pistons finished 11-of-26 from the free throw line, including 5-of-12 in the final quarter. Wallace was 1-of-6 in the period.

"We missed free throws. I missed a couple of gimmies in the paint," Prince said. "It's one of those games, four in five nights. You have to fight through it, but we ran out of gas."

Wallace went 1-of-2 at the foul line for an 88-85 Detroit lead with nearly 3 1/2 minutes left, but Turiaf made a driving layup and then Tolliver's layup gave Golden State the lead with about two minutes to go.

Turiaf made one free throw with 1:17 to go, and Detroit went cold from the field with Stuckey missing a jumper and Gordon off the mark on a three-point try with about half a minute to go.

Watson went 1-of-2 at the charity stripe for a 91-88 cushion with 25.2 showing on the clock.

The Pistons then inbounded the ball to Wallace, who was immediately fouled with 23.5 left. He promptly lofted two balls that never hit the rim or backboard, and Morrow made two from the stripe to seal Golden State's win.

Detroit led 22-14 after one quarter and pumped that to 50-37 at the half thanks to a surge late in the second. The Pistons' largest lead came at 58-44 on a Jonas Jerebko jumper with 8:24 left in the third. They were up 69-66 going to the fourth.
