capped a late Detroit surge with two go-ahead free throws Sunday and the Pistons pulled out a 96-94 victory over Milwaukee.

He had earlier forged a 94-94 tie on a hook shot with less than a minute to play.
Greg Monroe (14 points, 10 rebounds) and Jason Maxiell (10, 10) each contributed a double-double as the Pistons claimed a fourth win in five contests.
Monta Ellis pumped in 30 points and distributed nine assists for the Bucks, who lost for the first time in three games.
Ersan Ilyasova chipped in 24 points for Milwaukee.
