NBA: Detroit 107, Milwaukee 97

AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Nov. 28 (UPI) -- Allen Iverson, left on the bench at the start of the game, still led Detroit with 17 points Friday and the Pistons picked up a 107-97 win over Milwaukee.

Because Iverson and his teammates have had little workout time together since he was dealt to the Pistons by Denver this season, Detroit Coach Michael Curry called for a practice session on Thanksgiving Day.

Iverson, however, did not show up for it and that caused him to be removed from the starting lineup for Friday's game.

Once in the game, Iverson led six Detroit players in double figures. Walter Herrmann scored 16 points and Jason Maxiell had 13. None of the three leading Detroit scorers started the game.

Milwaukee got 21 points each from Richard Jefferson and Ramon Sessions, but the Bucks dropped their third straight.
