Afflalo steps up in fourth as Pistons top Bucks

Oct 12, 2008 - 3:36 AM MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Arron Afflalo scored 19 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter to help the Detroit Pistons hold off the Milwaukee Bucks and post a 111-99 exhibition victory on Saturday.

Detroit, which improved to 4-0 in the preseason, was in complete control of the contest early, opening up its lead with a 13-0 run in the first quarter before building a 61-44 advantage at the half.

Milwaukee surged back into contention in the third quarter, opening up the second half with a 13-2 run.

Andrew Bogut's basket with 4:27 to go in the period pulled the Bucks within 65-63. However, new Buck Richard Jefferson was whistled for a foul shortly thereafter and slapped with a technical foul when he protested, allowing the Pistons to replenish their lead after draining the subsequent three free throws.

Despite dropping to 0-4 in exhibition play, Milwaukee made another push, closing within 82-80 on a layup by Charlie Villanueva with 9:33 left in the contest. Yet, the Bucks failed to draw even, as Afflalo went on to score nine points on a 13-0 run.

Afflalo finished off consecutive breakaways that were started by steals, giving Detroit a 92-80 lead. The second-year guard added a jumper on the next possession and drew a foul after yet another Milwaukee turnover, making one of two free throws to build the lead to 95-80 with 6:30 left.

Rodney Stuckey had 15 points and 10 assists and Jason Maxiell scored 14 for the Pistons, who shot 52 percent (36-of-69) from the field.

Villanueva paced the Bucks with 26 points and eight rebounds and Michael Redd added 17 points and eight assists for Milwaukee, which recorded its highest offensive output under first-year coach Scott Skiles.
