The Pistons apparently didn't have too bad a hangover from their big matchup with Boston the other night, as they went into Madison Square Garden and defeated the Knicks 101-97. Tayshaun Prince led the Pistons with 28 points, bouncing back from a horrendous shooting performance during his last appearance in New York. Eddie Curry scored 23 for the Knicks. Elsewhere:
- Antawn Jamison made four free throws in the final minute and Toronto missed its last five shots in overtime as Washington pulled within three games of the Raptors in the East with a 110-106 win. Toronto's Chris Bosh did not play.
- Charlotte thumped the Hawks, 108-93, thanks to Raymond Felton's 23 points, 11 assists and a lackluster Atlanta effort.
