X-Factor: Pistons Rebound in Big Way

B. Wallace
The Pistons were outrebounded in four of the first five games of their series with New Jersey -- but not this time. Facing elimination, Detroit grabbed a dominant 46-31 advantage on the boards Sunday in an 81-75 road win over the Nets, extending the semifinal matchup to a decisive seventh game.
All-Star center Ben Wallace hauled in 20 rebounds, including nine of Detroit's 15 offensive boards.
