      The Pistons earned their
first road win of the season
at Philadelphia last month.
Lightning did not strike twice
when the Pistons re-visited
Philly Monday night.
      The 76ers defeated Detroit
104-97 to give the Pistons a
2-11 away record.
      The Pistons held a 49-46 halftime
advantage. The 76ers opened the 2nd-H on a 14-0 run to go up 60-49. Detroit
managed three ties late in the 3rd-Qtr and three more early in the 4th-Qtr.
Detroit was also briefly up by a point before Spencer Hawes sank an 18-footer
to end the 3rd-Qtr and give the 76ers a 76-75 lead.      
      Detroit tied one last time at 91-all on a Charlie Villanueva 3-pointer
with 5:26 to play. Jason Richardson's layup with 5:05 remaining put
Philly ahead to stay 93-91.
      Then, with the 6ers ahead 98-95 in the final minute, Detroit's Greg Monroe
missed a tip that could have closed the gap to a single point. Philly's Jrue
Holiday sank a 19-footer to make it 100-95 and the 76ers proceeded to clinch
the contest at the free throw line.
      Holiday had game-highs of 25-P & 8-A. Thaddeus Young had 20-P for Philadelphia.
Evan Turner added 18-P with 11-RB. Hawes chipped in 15-P and Richardson 13-P.
     Monroe and Brandon Knight topped Detroit with 22-P each. Rodney Stuckey
added 19-P and Tayshaun Prince 16.      
      Philadelphia is now 11-0 when leading after three quarters.
      The 6ers are 12-9 and Detroit 7-16 on the season.


PISTONS HEAD COACH LAWRENCE FRANK:    "At the end of the day, we have to be
cleaner. We gave up 58 points in the second half."

PISTONS C/F GREG MONROE:    "They are one of the best defensive teams in the

76ERS FWD THADDEUS YOUNG:    "The coaches have a lot of confidence in us and
we as players believe in ourselves. I think for those of us who have been here
for a while, it's very big to have confidence and belief in your ability."


      Stuckey was 9-for-9 at the free throw line.
      Detroit's Jason Maxiell was just 1-of-10 shooting for 2-P, but matched
Turner's co-game-high of 11-RB.
      Holiday scored 12 of his 25-P in the 4th-Qtr.
      76ers GD Nick Young (3-P in 18-min) returned after missing four games
with a left toe injury.
      The Pistons make a one-game return to the Palace to host Denver Tuesday
