The Detroit Pistons rallied in the second quarter to take a 48-44 lead at halftime over the visiting Golden Sate Warriors.
The Warriors led by five points after the first quarter thanks to a strong start from forward David Lee who scored 13 points in the opening quarter. Lee leads Golden State with 17 points and 3 rebounds so far.
Detroit big man Greg Monroe scored 10 of his 17 first-half points in the second quarter to help put the Pistons in front at the break. Monroe also has six rebounds as he appears headed for another monster game.
The Pistons have done a good job keeping the Warriors from getting out and running, holding high-scoring guard Monta Ellis to just five points on one of four field goal attempts. Detroit even has an advantage in fast break points with seven points compared to six for Golden State.
Golden State does have an advantage off the bench thus far with Brandon Rush making a pair of three-pointers to score eight of the team's 16 bench points at the half. Rodney Stuckey's six points accounts for all of Detroit's points off the pine.
