AUBURN HILLS, MICH. (AP) - Richard Hamilton led a balanced attack with 17 points and the Detroit Pistons beat the undermanned New York Knicks 110-96 Wednesday night.

The Pistons had eight players score between 10 and 17 points, and Michael Curry didn’t have to play any of his starters more than 31 minutes. Amir Johnson had 13 rebounds off the bench, while fellow reserve Rodney Stuckey had 11 assists.

Detroit was smarting over Sunday’s embarrassing 26-point home loss to Minnesota, while the Knicks were still trying to put together a roster after trading away their two leading scorers.

To make things tougher for New York, Nate Robinson missed the game with a groin strain, leaving the Knicks with just eight players.

Al Harrington led the Knicks with 25 points, while David Lee added 17 and Wilson Chandler had 15.
