Pistons 89, Milwaukee 78

MILWAUKEE (WWJ/AP) – The Pistons got a double win Saturday, as they beat the Milwaukee Bucks, 89-78 on the road, and Rip Hamilton made his first appearance in 13 games.

Tracy McGrady led the Pistons with 20 points, spoke on WWJ post-game regarding Rip Hamilton’s return to active status for Detroit, “That gave us a boost of energy tonight…..good to have him back – he helped us out tremendously tonight,” McGrady said.

Reserve Richard Hamilton scored 15 points in his first action since Jan. 10th.

Less than 24 hours after he said he thought he’d played his last game for Detroit because he was inactive in a win on Friday night, Hamilton looked much more like the sharpshooter who helped the Pistons win a title in 2004.

Detroit took control early in the second quarter and put the game out of reach with a 12-2 run in the fourth.

The Pistons have won two in a row, including Friday nights win over New Jersey, 92-82.

It was Milwaukee’s fourth straight loss despite the return of Andrew Bogut, who missed two games with right knee soreness. Bogut finished with 18 points, but the worst-shooting, lowest- scoring team in the NBA lost its fourth straight.
