Banged-up Pistons edge Hornets 111-108 in OT
AUBURN HILLS, MI – Will Bynum's driving layup with 7.4 seconds left in overtime helped the Detroit Pistons to a 111-108 victory over the New Orleans Hornets on Sunday night.
Detroit trailed by one after a pair of free throws by David West with 15.0 seconds remaining. After a brief scramble, Bynum picked up the ball in the backcourt and went straight to the basket, getting a hard pick from Jason Maxiell along the way and scoring while drawing a foul.
Bynum missed the free throw, and New Orleans called a timeout, but Maxiell tipped away the inbound pass, outfought West for the ball and dunked with 0.5 seconds remaining.
The Pistons were without guards Richard Hamilton and Rodney Stuckey, who sat out with an upset stomach and a sore left big toe.
