Hamilton helps points, Pistons beat Cavaliers -- The AP reports: Detroit Pistons coach John Kuester went with a very small lineup in the second half against the Cleveland Cavaliers, and it paid off in a 102-92 victory... Kuester started the third quarter by replacing power forward Jason Maxiell with Ben Gordon. Gordon, Richard Hamilton and Rodney Stuckey gave the Pistons a three-guard look, with Tayshaun Prince at power forward and Ben Wallace at center... The new lineup came along with an all-too-rare good shooting night from Richard Hamilton. Hamilton, who came into the game averaging 12.7 points, finished with 27, hitting 10 of 17 field goals, and going 4 of 6 from 3-point range... Rodney Stuckey had his first double-double of the season with 24 points and 11 assists, while Tayshaun Prince added 20 points for Detroit... Reserve Antawn Jamison led Cleveland with 22 points, but no starter scored more than 14.
