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.
Brad Miller, Sac. VGM value: 19.8 Sunday: One missed free throw was the only blemish for Miller, who compiled an efficiency rating of plus-30 by posting 17 points (5-for-5 FG), seven rebounds and five assists in a 104-87 win over Minnesota.
