WASHINGTON (AP) -- Charlie Villanueva scored 19 points, Rodney Stuckey added 18 and the Detroit Pistons got their second win in as many nights over the Washington Wizards, 96-87 on Saturday night.

It was only the second time this season that Detroit had won consecutive games.

The Wizards, who trailed throughout the game, have lost seven straight and dropped to an NBA-worst 3-22.

For the second straight night, Detroit had 58 rebounds, a season high.

The Wizards closed to 88-81 with 6:15 to play, but didn't score for nearly four minutes as Detroit built a 94-81 lead with 2:55 to play.

Jordan Crawford, who scored his only point of the first half with 1:05 to play, scored 20 in the second half to lead Washington with 21. Emeka Okafor had 14 points and tied a season high with 14 rebounds.
