Pistons show some life in Game 3 win
I believe in giving equal time...
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Three games into the NBA Finals, the Detroit Pistons finally figured things out: With some energy and aggression, they can actually play with the San Antonio Spurs.
Not only play with them, but soundly defeat them.
The defending champions summoned the spirit and spunk that had been missing in the first two games of the NBA Finals, changing the complexion of the series in a way many thought impossible.
Ben Wallace and Richard Hamilton led the way as the Pistons dominated the final 14 minutes and defeated the Spurs 96-79 in Game 3 Tuesday night.
"I think we figured out how hard we have to play," coach Larry Brown said. "I think our guys realize it's going to take our very best to make this a competitive series."
