Last night at MCI Center:


54.5Percent shooting from the floor for the Pistons in the fourth quarter.


With the scored tied 85-85 following a Gilbert Arenas jumper, the Pistons outscored the Wizards 20-11 the rest of the way. This included a stretch of two minutes in which the Wizards didn’t score a basket.


Pretty much everybody has heard what former Washington players Richard Hamilton, Ben Wallace and Rasheed Wallace have had to say about their former team. However, it’s not too often Darvin Ham — whose mother is the mayor of Saginaw, Mich. — is heard on the subject.

Ham spent one year (1997-98) in Washington, appearing in 71 games and making three starts. Last season he also earned a championship ring.

“It used to be an easy game to come in and play these guys,” Ham said. “They’ve got some good young talent now, and they should have a good future. They believe they can win. You come in here half-stepping, and you will get surprised. I look for them to make [the playoffs] and be in the thick of things.”
