Pistons' Engine Purrs Like a Kitten
Ben Wallace, known more for his defense, talked about Detroit's offensive enlightenment that led to the Pistons' 95-85 Game 3 victory over Milwaukee. "Coming into the third quarter, we made simple plays," he said. "We passed the ball and let the other guy make a play -- that's playing basketball." Wallace scored 13 points to go with 21 rebounds.
Denver entered its first home playoff contest in nine years down a pair to Minnesota, but the eighth-seeded Nuggets feasted on the Timberwolves from start to finish in a 107-86 Game 3 triumph.
