MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Tayshaun Prince scored a season-high 18 points and Rodney Stuckey added 18 to help the Detroit Pistons beat the Milwaukee Bucks 93-81 on Tuesday night.
Leading 64-62 going into the fourth, the Bucks tied it twice before Jason Maxiell's short jumper ignited a 16-6 run that turned the game decisively in the Pistons' favor. Ben Gordon's jumper capped the run and gave Detroit an 87-75 lead with 2:50 to go and they never looked back.
Charlie Villanueva, who missed two of the previous four games with back spasms, scored 18 for the Pistons (18-32) who had lost six of the last eight games.
Brandon Jennings scored 11 of his 18 points in the second half and Andrew Bogut added 17 points and 18 rebounds for the Bucks (23-27).
