AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -Chauncey Billups 28 points, three coming on a disputed shot at the end of the third quarter, and the Detroit Pistons got past the Orlando Magic for a 100-93 win Monday night and a 2-0 lead in the second-round series.
Billups officially made a 3-pointer with 0.5 seconds left in the third, ending a play that started with 5.1 seconds and seemed to take a fraction of a second longer using replays the officials didn't use during a 5-minute delay.
Rasheed Wallace and Tayshaun Prince scored 17 points apiece, and Prince added 10 rebounds and five assists. Game 3 in the best-of-seven series is Wednesday night in Orlando.
Dwight Howard bounced back from a lackluster game with 22 points, 18 rebounds and two blocks. Jameer Nelson scored 22 points, making five 3-pointers, before fouling out with 1:23 left in the game. Rashard Lewis overcame a slow start to score 20 points.
