MAKE THAT 15-2!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOHOOOOO!!!!!!
*Pistons deny Clippers a perfect homestand*

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- With a championship-tested backcourt of Chauncey Billups and Richard Hamilton, the Los Angeles Clippers' home dominance was no match for the Detroit Pistons' command of the road. {WOOOOHOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! and NEITHER of them has EVER been voted to the All-star team!!!}}

Billups scored 25 points and had eight assists against one turnover and Hamilton added 23 points as the Pistons never trailed in a 109-101 victory over the Clippers, who had won the first four games of their five-game homestand. {ROAD WARRIORS??? that's what separates the men from the boys around the league}

Detroit finished with only four turnovers - one more than the NBA record. {hmm, could it be these guards are really pretty good?}}

The league's most surprising upstart, Los Angeles has vaulted to the top of the Pacific Division, a group it normally supports from the basement, on the strength of nine wins in its first 10 home games. {They are better than normal for sure....and much improved}

However, Detroit had matched that mark on the road entering Sunday and controlled throughout to defeat the Clippers for the 15th time in the last 19 meetings. {Can you say TOTAL domination??}}

Billups had 13 points and six assists in the first half as the Pistons turned it over just once {{ ONE TURNOVER IN A HALF!!!! WOW!!!!!}} and claimed a 59-45 lead. He made a 3-pointer and a 19-footer in a span of 37 seconds midway through the third to put his club ahead, 70-58.
{yes, that's why he's called Mr. Big Shot}

Hamilton had nine points in the final 5:05 of the period and capped it with a layup at the buzzer to make it 83-72. {{watching people guard this guy reminds me of Rocky Balboa tryin to catch that chicken in the first Rocky movie! lol}} He's the 'silent assassin'

Los Angeles got within eight points on more than one occasion in the fourth, but never closer. Desperate to cut into the deficit and maintain their run at home, the Clippers resorted to fouling center Ben Wallace over the final six minutes. {Nice try, Clippers...but it ain't happening}

The strategy nearly paid off as Wallace made just 4-of-14 free throws down the stretch. However, he got his own rebound on one of the misses and fed Billups for a 3-pointer that put Detroit ahead, 97-86, with 4:50 left.
{{ Hmmm Mr. Big Shot again....lol}}
