Pistons Cool Off Cavs

By  | 

(AP) -Allen Iverson had 23 points and Rasheed Wallace added 21, leading a fourth-quarter surge that gave the Pistons a 96-89 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

LeBron James had led Cleveland to an eight-game winning streak, but he made just eight of 21 shots and scored 25 points.

It looked as if Cleveland was going to beat the Pistons the first time it saw them with Iverson, leading 24-16 after the first quarter and enjoying double-digit leads in the second and third quarters.

But Rasheed Wallace made two free throws early in the fourth to put the Pistons ahead for the first time since midway through the first quarter.

After some lead changes, Wallace gave Detroit the lead for good with 3-pointers on consecutive possessions midway through the fourth.
