Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Charlie Villanueva nailed a 3-pointer with
9.7 seconds remaining to lift the Detroit Pistons over the Milwaukee Bucks,
105-100, on Saturday.
Jose Calderon, playing in his third game since being acquired from the
Raptors, netted 23 points on 10-of-13 shooting for the Pistons, who won their
second straight following a victory Friday which snapped San Antonio's 11-game
winning streak. Rodney Stuckey donated 19 points, while Villanueva finished
with 18 -- on 4-of-7 from behind the arc -- and 13 rebounds in the victory.
Brandon Jennings scored a game-high 26 points and dished out seven helpers for
the Bucks, who had a chance to tie the game following Villanueva's trey.
Jennings got the ball back and drove across halfcourt, but misfired from well
beyond the three-point arc, although the clock still showed three seconds, and
the Bucks were forced to foul Stuckey, who made two free throws to provide
the final points.
Ersan Ilyasova and Samuel Dalembert each recorded double-doubles with 15
points and 10 rebounds and 14 points and 12 rebounds, respectively, in the
Bucks' third straight defeat.
