(Newser) – The Pistons battled back from 22 down to defeat the Warriors 111-104 last night. Rasheed Wallace, Tayshawn Prince and Richard Hamilton all scored 22 points each. Despite Baron Davis' 29-point, 10-assist effort, the Warriors remain the league's only winless team at 0-6.

Elsewhere around the league:

  • The Nuggets defense was smothering in a 110-93 win over the Trailblazers.  Carmello Anthony went for 25 points in 34 minutes.
  • Houston Rocket Tracy McGrady injured his elbow in a 93-90 loss to the Lakers.  After an MRI, the Rockets learned McGrady will miss close to a week.
