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.
