AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - The Detroit Pistons made just enough
shots and stops to advance to the Eastern Conference finals for a
sixth straight year.
Richard Hamilton scored 19 of his 31 points in the first half,
made victory-sealing free throws late in the game and Tayshaun
Prince had a key block, helping Detroit hold off the Orlando Magic
for a 91-86 win Tuesday night in Game 5 of the second-round series.
The Pistons will have a break before facing the Boston Celtics
or Cleveland Cavaliers in the conference finals.
