Detroit lost its second straight after a 10-game winning streak. Chauncey Billups had a season-best 34 points for the Pistons and Rasheed Wallace had 21.

An 11-2 run brought the Pistons within three with 72 seconds remaining, but Milwaukee extended its advantage to six at the free-throw line.

Redd added three free throws over the final 20 seconds and, with Milwaukee owning a four-point lead, Billups missed a three-point attempt with seven seconds left. Williams grabbed the rebound, but he called a time out the Bucks did not have and a technical foul was called.

Billups made the technical foul shot, but Wallace missed a three-point attempt that would have tied it and Redd claimed the rebound.
