Even though the best-of-seven playoff series is tied at two games apiece, the perception is that the Detroit Pistons have regained their edge after Sunday's 93-84 win over the 76ers. Trailing by 10 points at halftime, Detroit showed the heart and fire that made the second-seeded Pistons such prohibitive favorites at the beginning of the series. Detroit has regained at least the psychological control as the teams gear up for tonight's 7 o'clock matchup at the Palace of Auburn Hills, but the Sixers have shown resilience this season and in this series.

Brooklyn Nets general manager Billy King told ESPN New York radio on Sunday that interim coach P.J. Carlesimo is the coach for now and that the team is not actively looking for a replacement for fired coach Avery Johnson. Phil Jackson and Jeff Van Gundy have been rumored candidates, but King said he had "not contacted anybody. "   Big Three burn Mavs Tony Parker had 21 points and nine assists; Manu Ginobili scored 20; Tim Duncan finished with 18 points and 10 boards; and the San Antonio Spurs handed the Mavericks their sixth straight loss, 111-86, in Dallas.

The Detroit Pistons showed Miami they're prepared to turn up the heat again this season. Chauncey Billups scored 30 and Richard Hamilton had 25 points and a season-high nine assists last night to lead Detroit past the visiting Heat, 106-101, in a rematch of the last season's Eastern Conference finals. In their first matchup since the Pistons won at Miami in Game 7 of the series, Detroit used clutch shots and key defensive plays in the final minutes to pull away in the close game.

In a fitting finish, the play of the game was a defensive one. Tayshaun Prince sprinted downcourt to block a breakaway layup by Reggie Miller that would have tied the game, and the visiting Detroit Pistons put on another dominant display of defense to defeat the Indiana Pacers, 72-67, last night. Prince's block was the 19th of the game for the Pistons, one shy of the NBA playoff record set by the 76ers in 1981. Richard Hamilton scored 13 of the Pistons' final 15 points, finishing with 23, and Detroit evened the series at one game apiece heading into Game 3 tomorrow night at Auburn Hills, Mich.

"It was just a matter of time," Stackhouse said a telephone interview with the AP yesterday.

Tayshaun Prince and Chauncey Billups stepped up at just the right time and the Detroit Pistons are on the verge of another series sweep. Prince scored 23 points and Billups added 21, and the visiting Pistons rallied from a 19-point deficit to beat the Chicago Bulls, 81-74, last night in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. The Pistons, who swept Orlando in the first round, will try to wrap up this one Sunday at the United Center. No NBA team has won a best-of-seven series after dropping the first three games, and only three major professional teams have done that - the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs, 1975 New York Islanders and 2004 Boston Red Sox. After blowing out the Bulls in the first two games at The Palace of Auburn Hills, the Pistons trailed 44-28 at halftime.

Andre Iguodala found himself last night in a place he's never been during a game since he joined the 76ers in 2004 as the ninth pick in the NBA draft. On the sideline. Iguodala, the Sixers' leading scorer, missed his first-ever professional game, and his first start since turning pro, last night against the Charlotte Bobcats because of a lower-back strain. The 6-foot-6 swingman had started 232 consecutive games, third among active players behind Bruce Bowen of San Antonio (421)

MINNEAPOLIS - The 76ers are taking a different approach to their rebuilding process than that of their opponent Monday night. The Minnesota Timberwolves have three players in Kevin Garnett, Andre Miller and Tayshaun Prince, who have at least 13 years of experience, to mentor their young standouts. Meanwhile, the Sixers' lone veteran presence comes from ninth-year forward Carl Landry. Because he will be sidelined until January, the 32-year-old really hasn't had a presence on a team whose second-oldest player is 24. So how do the Sixers make up for the lack of veteran presence?

DETROIT - The Pistons fired coach John Kuester yesterday, 4 days after Tom Gores completed an agreement to buy the team from Karen Davidson. Kuester was 57-107 over two seasons with Detroit, which failed to make the postseason in consecutive years for the first time since missing the playoffs three straight times from 1993-95. This past season was a dreary one, with the proud franchise making more news for internal squabbling than any on-court accomplishments. "Decisions like this are difficult to make," team president Joe Dumars said.

Pistons come back to take one from the Knicks The Detroit Pistons rallied from an 11-point, fourth-quarter deficit to beat the visiting New York Knicks, 99-95, Friday night. The win was assured after Chris Wilcox made a one-handed dunk off a missed shot with 53 seconds left to give Detroit a two-point lead. The Knicks' Carmelo Anthony responded by driving past Tayshaun Prince, but Wilcox was there to force a missed shot. After Will Bynum missed on the Pistons' next possession, Wilcox helped keep the ball alive, and Detroit came up with it. Bynum made two free throws with 11 seconds left for the final margin.

Which is the bigger surprise - that after 132 games the 76ers are finally back to .500 for the first time since Nov. 11, 2009, or that yet another NBA trade deadline has passed and Andre Iguodala is still with the team? Admit it. That is a close one. Just about every season for the last few years, Iguodala has been rumored to be moving on to one team or another. Those things will happen when a struggling team has an $80 million asset on the roster. Often, teams look to dump contracts, and Iguodala's certainly is a big one. The chatter continued this season, when the Sixers opened the season 3-13.

THIS TIME last season, the 76ers were in the same predicament the Detroit Pistons are in now. The players didn't like the coach; the record was abysmal. Playing basketball had become a chore more than anything else. The train wreck that is the Pistons rolled into town, halfheartedly played a game, lost, 110-94, then headed for the team bus seemingly without a care in the world. And probably without coach John Kuester for too much longer. But the Sixers can't worry about other teams' trials and tribulations.

It's a feat that wouldn't raise eyebrows in San Antonio, or be a big deal in Laker land, but the 76ers have reached territory that has been foreign for the longest of times. With Friday's 110-94 win over the Detroit Pistons at the Wells Fargo Center, the Sixers improved to 29-29. They are at the .500 level for the first time since Nov. 11, 2009, when they were 4-4. Considering last year's 27-win fiasco and this year's 3-13 start, the Sixers have made a serious turnaround. "This is a great night for our team and our fans," Sixers coach Doug Collins said.

All Pistons coach John Kuester could do before last night's game against the 76ers was smile, plead ignorance and move on. Earlier in the day, five of his players missed the team's shootaround and two others arrived late. According to the Detroit News , five players decided to stage a protest after the organization failed to complete any deals by Thursday's trade deadline. Tayshaun Prince, Tracy McGrady, Richard Hamilton, Chris Wilcox and Ben Wallace were not present for the 11 a.m. shootaround at the Wells Fargo Center.
