Richard Hamilton led the Detroit Pistons to a 103-89 victory over the Toronto Raptors with his season-high 39 points. The former UConn standout went 16-for-22 from the field and helped Detroit erase from team memory an ugly 89-65 loss to the laughable New York Knicks on Sunday. Chris Bosh led the Raptors with 16 points and 11 rebounds, reports the Associated Press.
Detroit opened up a 13-point second quarter lead but ex-Piston Carlos Delfino, who scored all of his 14 points in the period, hit a layup as time expired to pare the lead down to 51-50 at the break. However, the Raptors went cold to start the third period and Detroit built a lead that was never seriously threatened.
