Pistons beat Celtics 92-86 in Wallace’s return

Rodney Stuckey scored 27 points and grabbed a career-high 11 rebounds, leading the Detroit Pistons to a 92-86 victory over the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night. Rasheed Wallace had 16 points in his first game as an ex-Piston at The Palace, where the once-adored player received a mixed welcome and was booed late in the closely contested game. Wallace's 3-pointer pulled Boston within four points with 43.5 seconds left. Richard Hamilton scored on the ensuing possession to seal Detroit's fourth win in five games. Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo each scored 21 points for the Celtics, who have lost three straight for the second time in less than a month. Detroit's Charlie Villanueva scored 19 points and Jason Maxiell had 12 off the bench. (Copyright 2010 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
