2 and 2

Couldn't watch the game, so I guess the recap will have to do...

Prince leads way as series shifts back to Detroit knotted at 2 apiece
Pistons Even Series At 2-2 With 93-84 Win Over 76ers

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- A dash of perfection was exactly what Detroit needed to go from the brink of a disastrous deficit to back in control of the series.

All it took was 12 minutes.

Tayshaun Prince scored 23 points and made all but one shot from the field, and the Pistons played with a purpose and dominated the second half to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 93-84 on Sunday night, tying the best-of-seven Eastern Conference playoff series at 2-2.

"Everybody knows that we are good under pressure," said guard Chauncey Billups. "I hate that we put ourselves in this position a lot of times."

Game 5 is Tuesday night at Detroit.

The Pistons squashed all that chatter about heading home with a series deficit, erasing a 10-point halftime deficit by outscoring the 76ers 34-16 in the third quarter.
