@ SACRAMENTO, CA:

    The Pistons picked on a team far
worse than themselves to win on
the road for the first time in more
than two months, beating the
Sacramento Kings 106-90 late  
night Monday.

    The first Detroit away victory
since JAN 10TH at Brooklyn ended
a 12 game road losing streak and
gave the Pistons just their third
win in their last 11 overall outings.

    Blake Griffin keyed the successful
decision with game-highs of 26-P & 7-A plus 9-RB and a block.

    Tied at the half 44-all, the Pistons outscored the Kings 62-46 after
intermission.  Detroit held a 73-66 margin entering the 4th-QTR, then
broke it open with a 12-2 run to begin the final frame.  The Pistons led
by as many as 22-P at 98-76 on Reggie Bullock's 3-pointer with 4:09 to
play.

    Ish Smith had 18-P, Bullock 17, Anthony Tolliver 12, Stanley Johnson 11
and Luke Kennard 10 for Detroit.  Andre Drummond (4-P) pulled down a
game-high 16-RB, 14 on defense.

    Buddy Hield scored 20-P for the Kings.  De'Aaron Fox added 16-P, Justin
Jackson 15-P and Skal Labissiere 10-P.

    At 31-39 the Pistons became six full games behind Milwaukee for the
8th and last NBA Eastern Conference playoff position.

    With a second consecutive loss and fourth in six contests Sacramento fell
to 23-49 and are already eliminated from the Western Conference post-season
chase.
