Winless no more, Pistons romp past 76ers 94-76
DETROIT 94, PHILADELPHIA 76

By DAN GELSTON
AP Sports Writer

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Winless no more, the Detroit Pistons had
good reason to break out the cheers in a locker room
celebration.



The worst start in franchise history was over.



Greg Monroe had 19 points, 18 rebounds and six assists to help
the Pistons beat the Philadelphia 76ers 94-76 on Wednesday
night.



Kyle Singler scored 16 points in his first start of the season,
and Tayshaun Prince and Brandon Knight each scored 15 points for
the Pistons, who improved to a still-woeful 1-8. But they will
take it.



"We're disappointed in our start, but it wasn't like we had any
doubt we were going to win a game," coach Lawrence Frank said.
"When we deserve to win, we'll win."



Gobbling rebounds with each Sixers miss, the Pistons deserved
this one. Playing their seventh road game out of nine games this
season, the Pistons controlled the lethargic Sixers from the
opening tip. Four Pistons starters scored in double digits and
forward Jason Maxiell had eight points and 12 rebounds.



"We felt like, as a team, this was long overdue," Monroe said.



The Pistons played so well they didn't even need both eyes on
the ball from the free-throw line. Late in the second quarter,
Monroe was fouled on a drive down the lane and had a contact
shuffled around in the process. He touched his right eye,
squinted, and buried the first shot. With his contact back in
place, he clanked the second attempt. The moment was good for a
chuckle in a game that turned into a laugher.



"My contact was just acting a little funny," Monroe said,
laughing.



Monroe had a small shiner but blamed a hit from Oklahoma City's
Kevin Durant in Monday's game.



The Sixers easily played their worst game of the season, making
only 25 of 84 shots, for 30 percent. Lavoy Allen led them with
14 points, and Jrue Holiday had 12.



"When you see somebody beating up on you, you're supposed to hit
back," Holiday said. "We didn't have that today. After a while,
when we tried to, everything was going their way."



Without injured center Andrew Bynum, the Sixers continued to get
dominated inside. They were outrebounded by 17 in Monday's loss
to Milwaukee and got crushed on the boards 33-15 by halftime in
this one. Monroe had nine at the break - or as many as the
Sixers' starting lineup combined.



Philadelphia missed 30 of 43 shots in the first half and made
only 5 of 10 free throws.



The few thousand fans that showed up made for a dreary preseason
atmosphere and they all booed the Sixers off the court at the
break.



Kwame Brown started at center after missing four games because
of a strained left calf, picked up two quick fouls, and played
only 8 minutes in the first half.



The Pistons had plenty of room to maneuver in the paint -
Singler scored 13, Prince had 12, and Monroe added 11 points in
the first half.



Detroit had most of its fun in the second quarter, stretching a
two-point lead into 52-34 at the break. The Pistons made only
three 3-pointers all game, scoring the bulk of their points on
mid-range jumpers, and easy buckets around the basket.



The Sixers again struggled with their halfcourt offense, showing
little ball movement and firing up long jumpers as the shot
clock ticked down. Bynum hasn't played all season because of a
bone bruise and isn't expected back until at least early
January. It's clear they need help in the middle because the
Brown-Spencer Hawes-Thaddeus Young combination has been a bust.



"It's not the end of the world," Hawes said. "We're going to get
it right. We're going to get it back on track."



The Pistons led by as many as 23 points and had their way with
the Sixers in the paint (42-28), on the fastbreak (17-11) and,
most impressively, the glass, outrebounding the Sixers 57-38.
The Pistons beat them 45-27 on defensive rebounds, just the kind
of performance that will win a few more games.



"It shows what we're capable of doing," Frank said. "It's got to
be a standard of how we play."



NOTES: 76ers F Dorell Wright briefly left the game and needed
eight stitches on his chin. ... Frank started 0-16 with the New
Jersey Nets in 2009 and was fired. ... The Pistons had never
started worse than 0-7 before this season. ... On the plus side,
the Sixers made only four turnovers. They had averaged 15.4. ...
Dating to last season, the Sixers have lost seven of eight at
home.
