Pistons Vs. 76ers Final Score: Detroit Wins What Could Be Ben Wallace's Final Game, 108-86

The Detroit Pistons' season finale could very well be the final game in Ben Wallace's illustrious career. If it is indeed Wallace's final game, the fans and his teammates helped make it a memorable one, as the Pistons -- donning headbands to pay homage to the four-time Defensive Player of the Year, who wore a headband throughout his career -- beat the playoff bound Philadelphia 76ers, 108-86.

The other Ben, Ben Gordon, somewhat stole the show by hitting seven consecutive threes -- a Pistons' record -- in the second quarter. In the quarter, in which the Pistons outscored the Sixers 39-28, the Pistons also broke a team record for three-pointers, hitting 11.

Gordon led all scorers with 26 points and finished the game with eight three-pointers. Wallace finished with seven points and 12 rebounds in just over 22 minutes. After the game, Wallace said that he will take some time to think about coming back, even though he feels it is time to retire.

Pistons Vs. Sixers Score Update: Detroit Turns In Best Half Of Season, Leads Philadelphia 65-43

On what might be Ben Wallace's last game in the NBA, the Detroit Pistons are well on their way to sending him out with a bang. The Pistons turned in their best half of the season and lead the playoff bound 76ers by 22, 65-43.

The other Ben, Ben Gordon, is stealing the show from Wallace, though, as he has hit seven three-pointers in the second quarter. The seven threes broke Chauncey Billups' previous Pistons' record for threes in a quarter. The Pistons hit 11 threes in all in the quarter, which is also a Pistons' record.

Gordon has 21 points and five assists, including assists on all three of Charlie Villanueva's three-pointers.

Ben Wallace started the game and had five points and seven rebounds in nearly 10 minutes.

The Pistons are wearing headbands tonight in a nice touch to pay homage to Wallace's revered career.
