DETROIT, Dec. 17 (UPI) -- Rasheed Wallace
scored 19 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead the Detroit Pistons over the Chicago Bulls, 110-82, at The Palace of Auburn Hills.
Richard Hamilton had 18 points, Chauncey Billups scored 15 and added eight assists to help Detroit win its eighth game in nine tries.
Chris Duhon had 13 points and Luol Deng was the only other double-digit scorer for the Bulls, who have lost two of their last three contests. Deng finished with 11 points.
Detroit never trailed in the game and led from the 7:03 mark of the first quarter on.
"From the moment the ball went up they dominated us all over the floor at almost every spot," said Bulls coach Scott Skiles. "We had no answer for them early. They got all over the glass, they got second-chance points and we couldn't get back in transition. When you let that team start feeling good about themselves, you're in for a long night."
