Last-Second Davis Dunk Stuns Pistons

From Associated Press

Baron Davis wanted to drive on the final play, and Chauncey Billups gave him a chance by missing two free throws.

Davis' dunk with one second left gave the New Orleans Hornets an 81-80 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night at Auburn Hills, Mich.

Billups, a 92% free-throw shooter, missed a pair with seven seconds left.

Davis, shooting only six for 21 to that point, took a pass from P.J. Brown, went past Ben Wallace and dunked over Bob Sura.

"We had a great play drawn up that we practiced in shoot-around," Davis said. "When I came off the pick, I saw Ben leaning and I knew I had to get to the hole. There were no jumpers being shot -- I was missing those all night. I had to get to the hole."

Jamaal Magloire led New Orleans with 20 points and 15 rebounds.

Tayshaun Prince and Richard Hamilton led the Pistons with 13 points apiece.
